BUSINESS CONTINUITY AND GLOBAL LOGISTICS

Infrastructural weakness, social and political uncertainly, and financial turbulence pose significant threats. It is essential to build resilient and adaptable supply chains across geographies while keeping inventory to a minimum.

Session to be chaired by Gordon Telling, Head of Urban Logistics from the Freight Transport Association, who will share an insight into S&OP whilst steering discussion amongst the superb panel of globally experienced experts.

There will be time for interaction from the audience to suggest ideas and ask questions to see how our delegates can help solve problems.

ATTRACTING AND RETAINING SUPPLY CHAIN TALENT

Do you face attracting and retaining the best and brightest in your supply chain organisation?  This workshop will take the form of an open discussion to test the perception that Supply Chain often has problems competing with other career disciplines to attract and retain the highest quality people.  It will use as an example the experience of a major petrochemical company to simulate a discussion around this subject and aims to draw out cross industry strategies that might be employed raise the profile of a supply chain career.

 

Take away points

  • Are careers in supply chain really understood by those entering the job market or seeking a change in career?
  • Is the term supply chain too broad and are the skills within this discipline to varied to create a "supply chain" career path?
  • Should we force fit a supply chain career development path, develop people by moving them to other disciplines or address the organisational structure of the supply chain itself.

11:20 - 11:55 (Workshop at Workshop 2 - Forest Suite 3)

THE FUTURE OF SUPPLY CHAIN

Businesses today face the problem that they can access more information in real-time through the Internet, than they can analyze in the time available for making decisions. This changes our understanding of the scarcity of resources in businesses, from having limited natural resources, capital or information towards 'management attention' as both a critical and scarce resource. In the Future of the Supply Chain we will go through how LEGO is attempting to solve this problem using real-time data-mining & scheduling in an interactive decision making process, that virtualizes the S&OP process.

 

Key points

  • Management Attention Time is the scarce resource in the Future of the Supply Chain
  • Human bias in decision making destroys the overall supply chain performance, and costs LEGO at least 24% lost sale, 20% service level, and 25% profitability.
  • Software is needed to help decision makers realise this, but it needs to be much more interactive than what any ERP does today.
  • LEGO will show a prototype multi-agent system that permits real-time consequence evaluation of decisions and virtualises the S&OP process, and explain why real-time is so important.

SUPPLY CHAIN ANALYTICS AND SEGMENTATION

A discussion about how we can Leverage new technology to provide powerful information and analysis capabilities to reveal true underlying causes of problems within the supply chain. Using the same data and analysis to provide insight to S&OP processes and challenge sacred cows within the organisation. And finally show how technology is enabling new segmentation techniques and strategies to the management of the supply chain to ensure our people are truly adding value where it is important, and taking the effort out of the necessary but non-strategic activities. 


Key take away points :

  • Embrace and leverage new technology to provide deep and powerful analysis and insight 
  • Use the same information to provide powerful fact based analysis to drive S&OP processes 
  • Leverage technology to free our people to focus on true vale adding strategically important activities

REAL TIME INVENTORY HUB - RESPONDING IN THE RETAIL MOMENT

In today’s omni-channel world it is becoming an imperative for retailers to maintain an up-to-the-minute window into the performance of their supply chain operations. In particular many retailers are looking to develop a real-time inventory hub so they can understand where their stock is located at any given time and use this information to respond to customer demand in the most efficient way possible. In this workshop we will discuss the potential application of a real-time Inventory Hub in the following areas:

  • Out-of-stock analysis – Retailers need insights that illuminate specific supply chain constraints, workloads, and opportunities – at an aggregated level across the supply chain. Detect real and possible out-of-stock situations to improve service levels and increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.
  • Consumer activity repository – Enable new processes, including multichannel performance analytics and predictive analytics to optimise order fulfilment.
  • On-shelf availability analysis – Use in-memory computing to assess real-time out-of-stock risk at the store level and analyse causes. Then act to solve service issues.
  • Integrated demand planning – Use in-memory computing to increase responsiveness to demand changes, optimizing sub-daily replenishments of fresh products such as produce and bakery items.

LEADERSHIP IN THE WAREHOUSE ENVIRONMENT

  • How to best use the labour management information / KPIs that are available to you.  However, remember it is still people and passion over process.
  • A reminder that the first line manager(the person that deals with the warehouse colleagues day in, day out) has the key to your productivity / performance.
  • The importance of having your goals in writing and visible.  This may be the goals of the Distribution Centre or the goals of one team / department.

IMPLEMENTING VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY - A SUCCESS STORY IN A OIL AND GAS COMPANY - OMV PETROM

  • Vendor Managed Inventory or VMI is a process where the vendor creates orders for their customers based on demand information that they receive from the customer.
  • The vendor and customer are bound by an agreement which determines inventory levels, fill rates and costs.
  • This arrangement can improve supply chain performance but reducing inventories and eliminating stock-out situations.
