Supply Chain Management-1

What is Supply Chain Management?

Resources are Plenty-Know how to manage, rather manipulate.

Increased sophistication in customer requirements and greater competition, have pushed the industry towards higher and higher levels of efficiency in an effort to meet customer needs and cut costs. One of the results of this drive has been the outsourcing of goods and services to third parties, in a way that has inexorably bonded the supply chains of operators, contractors and suppliers.

The question today is whether increased efficiency in the way individual companies are run is going to provide the industry with the performance improvements it seeks, or whether a new approach is needed which takes into account the whole Supply Chain.

Supply Chain Management is about managing the flow of information, materials, services and money across any activity, in a way which maximises the effectiveness of the process. It is about introducing new tools or revising well-known techniques in an effort to ask ourselves: “Is this the right thing to do” rather than “Is this the best way we can continue to do the same thing”. This is a continuous process, not a one-time fix.

In short, successful Supply Chain Management will reduce the costs of both clients and suppliers, while sustaining or improving added value and margins. Consequently, companies that have effective supply chains are most successful.

“A company that fails to manage its supply chains at a strategic level is unlikely to meet its business objectives effectively.”

No Chain is stronger than its weakest Link
What are the supply Chain Management activities provided by LOGIC?

“Efficiency is doing things right. Effectiveness is doing the right thing.”

“The LOGIC methodology will achieve a step change in the way the industry looks at Supply Chain Management.”

Richard Reynolds.” – Head of Procurement – Aker Oil & Gas Technology
Supply Chain Management Assessments:

This diagnostic process is designed to help you identify areas of improvement in your supply chain practices. The process is underpinned by the LOGIC SCM Methodology, the only industry recognised approach and questions will be asked from three different perspectives:

* What are your current practices?
* Do you consider these to be the best practices?
* What is the size of the gap between current and best practice?

More importantly, the assessment is an opportunity for the companies to create an internal ‘team for change’ which can absorb the tools and techniques available and become a self generating catalyst for continuous improvement.

“The presence of LOGIC provided focus and speed. More importantly we now have a highly effective, highly duplicatable process.”

John Lee – Operations Manager – Wood Group Engineering
