Supply chain management (SCM) is now a fact of life. The supply chain concept exists as a means to enhance the ability of a firm to develop and maintain strategic advantages in a competitive marketplace. The benefits of supply chains extend beyond the operational dimensions of lead‐me, quality, and flexibility to the strategic and financial areas. Supply chains, if properly structured, can effectively combine the core competencies of a given firm with the skills and capabilities of its suppliers.
According to ISM‐The Institute for Supply Management,the experts in Supply Management, has stated that every 1% that you reduce costs equates to 5% in additional sales.Understanding and applying the global best practices covered in this workshop will facilitate process improvements to drive savings. There’s a good reason why the overstretched supply chains in the Asia-Pacific region are keeping executives around the world up at night:
The primary role of supply chain management is increasingly complex, as a result of greater customer sophistication, increasing network fragmentation and the need for greater co-ordination of material, information and cash flows. Simultaneously, increasing amounts of data availability and processing power present opportunities for supply chain design and refinement. Where once supply chains were viewed as tactical, recent research suggests that supply chains are starting to redefine both product design and production technology, and can be sources of competitive advantage. To address this, Programic Asia has developed the Advanced Strategic Supply Chain MasterClass.
