Supply Chain Management

Proactive value creation

Advancing globalization, digital networking and technological progress are leading to increasingly complex procurement and sales markets. Supply chain management is faced with major pressure to adapt to dynamically changing environments, especially in sectors and industries characterized by strong levels of exports.

Challenges

  • Time-to-market – Response and adaptation speed are critical success factors in increasingly individualized and digitalized markets with a high number of versions and components, as well as shorter product life cycles and throughput times.
  • Efficient material and information flows – Stricter requirements governing product quality and constant price pressure require continuous resource optimization through the standardized recording and control of all production and material flows of raw materials, components, semi-finished products and finished products, as well as ordering and logistics processes.
  • Flexible procurement networks – Having the capability to flexibly absorb fluctuations in ordering levels in volatile and individualized markets requires continual value stream analysis, including the checking and consolidation of procurement from alternative supply sources as required.
  • Transparency – Manufacturing companies today are expected to transparently map their value creation chains, from raw material suppliers to end customers, to enable verification of product quality and reliability, sustainability and compliance with other production standards in line with applicable standards. A standardized, high-performance database and software base, coupled with coordinated production technologies and processes, are prerequisites for this.

Professional management resources are called for to handle these challenges in SCM, which enable companies to proactively organize and continuously optimize their procurement, production and delivery processes, tailored to their very own needs.
