The New Normal

 

One of the unintended consequences of the export of US manufacturing jobs is the rise of global supply chains. Suppliers used to cluster around customers, creating a manufacturing center. Due to rising price competition, global supply chains have led to longer lead times, translating into reduced flexibility to meet changing customer needs.

 

To learn about an order, you have to send an email to a supplier who speaks a different language, is located halfway around the globe from you, and operates in a different time zone.The barriers are distance, time zone, language, and incompatible technology. In order to reap any cost savings, you have to mitigate higher transaction costs.

 

What type of supply chain visibility do you have now compared to days past? What can you do in this New Normal to keep commitments with your customers?

Supply Chain Economics

 

Q: Do you know what your true Supply Chain costs are?

A: An enterprise's total supply chain costs include three elements: Direct, Transaction, and Opportunity costs.

 

  • Direct Costs: Product, Shipping, Insurance, Customs, and Warranty costs.

  • Transaction Costs: 3rd Party Transaction Fees, IT Support Staff, Hardware, Software Licensing, and Annual Maintenance Fees.

  • Opportunity Costs: Inventory Turns, Supply Chain Visibility, Operational Efficiency, Business Agility, Customer Shipment Delays, and Brand Image.

Rein your IT Spend Using Cloud Computing

 

Cloud Computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process information, rather than on a local server. There are many financial and strategic benefits to moving to the Cloud. It allows your organization to focus on its key mission whatever that may be and NOT be distracted by the complexities of IT.
