To begin, we’ll need to benchmark current performance and then identify needs and targets before developing a procurement strategy. This involves the collection of several different types of data divided into short, medium and long term. Correct coordination of production schedules, logistics synchronization and stock management help optimize the company’s resources.
A comprehensive, global approach on the supply chains will allow us to optimize production volume and timing, improve delivery times and routing, control delivered goods, adjust the size and location of the company’s premises, etc…
Relationships with suppliers must be close and proactive. The markets’ demands drive a continuous search for better prices, products and services. Working with the supplier as a “partner” of the whole process helps build lasting and fruitful relationships for both parties but at the same time it is critical to continuously identify and evaluate market alternatives.
A correct supply chain monitoring system in place help to avoid common problems as product defect, production delays, transport and customs delays, partial orders… A system is organized to anticipate and follow every phase.
