Advancing Inventory Management & Demand Planning

It has been said many times that there are two types of forecasts: lucky predictions and inaccurate ones. But just because your forecast will probably never be consistently perfect, doesn't mean that you shouldn't strive to achieve the most accurate forecast possible. Indeed better forecasts lead to better business management. And in these challenging economic times is critical that you have good estimates of what will happen in the future. With this information you will have a better idea of what you will sell or use, what products or material to stock, where the best opportunities for success are located and how to plan what resources will be needed. In the first part of this two day workshop we will lead you through the steps necessary to develop a successful, comprehensive demand forecasting program to meet your organization's specific needs. Instruction will be complemented by actual case studies and discussion involving participants'actual challenges. In the second part of the seminar we will use the results of our new forecasting practices to create a comprehensive inventory management program that will lead your firm to achieving the goal of effective inventory management:"Meet or exceed customers' expectations of product availability with the amount of each item that will maximize profitability or minimize your total inventory investment." Again we will accompany an explanation of "best practices" with actual case studies. There will also be ample opportunity to discuss delegates' specific inventory challenges. In addition to the instruction book describing all of the concepts presented in the workshop all participants will be given copies of these spreadsheet tools demonstrated in the workshop so that they can apply what they have learned in their organizations.

Strategic Sourcing and Supplier Management

Procurement and supply management professionals recognize the need to produce dramatic results in an increasingly complex business environment. This is especially true in these challenging economic times, and necessitates a truly STRATEGIC approach to what was traditionally a transactional procurement function. Truly progressive organizations worldwide have been able to transition from a transactional role to become a strategic sourcing instrument of the organization, which reduces costs, while increasing both efficiency and effectiveness. Such a strategic transition must concurrently address the critical aspects of supplier management. Progressive organizations must therefore establish the strategic capabilities created by both strategic sourcing and active management of supplier risk to assure an optimized supply chain.

Leveraging Supply Market Intelligence for Procurement Professionals

One of a supply manager's often repeated requests is, “Where can I find information on suppliers?” Obtaining suitable market intelligence are issues that confront supply managers daily in their efforts to find, qualify, and use appropriate sources of supply. And we should never discount the important role that information plays within the risk management domain. The answer to this seemingly simple request for information has many aspects. First, supply organizations need to identify what potential suppliers exist for a particular commodity and where they are located. Next, they must determine which suppliers are capable of providing the required goods and at what total landed cost. Then, it is necessary to narrow the supplier pool, including through a structured evaluation and selection process to arrive at a smaller set of supplier candidates. And, of course, a rigorous evaluation must occur to identify the final supplier. These factors, while complex enough on their own, are further complicated when suppliers are located in foreign countries. This process requires supply managers to obtain, analyse, and use supply market intelligence (SMI). SMI exists in many forms and places; no single source of intelligence is available. This course approaches the subject of supply market intelligence by first defining the concept and relating it to the development of supply strategies. Next, we present the uses, levels, and categories of supply market intelligence. Finally, many different sources of SMI are identified.

Growing in the Age of Risk and Leading with Digital Transformation China's economy growth is slowing down, and the increment is limited. Enterprises are transforming into producing high-value product. Procurement is shifting focus to strategic cost management and value chain optimization.
