Taking a Second Look at Supply Chain Planning Rules

Our S&OP expert Erika Barber is discussing the need for a Second Look at Supply Chain Planning Rules after the turmoil faced in recent years. In this webinar, she is reviewing some of the Supply Chain rules that we are currently using, examining their validity in today’s world, and then trying to answer some of the difficult questions faced by SC managers today:

  • Should we give up on JIT supply and production?
  • Can we now afford to be too lean?
  • Should we consider moving to Sovereign Supply Chains, where all labour input for a good comes from our local country?
  • Why is my line shut down due to inventory shortages for a product supplied by a vendor who I have rated as an “A”?
  • How do we achieve more flexibility in our supply chain?
