Supply Chain Management Optimisation
‘Today’s competition will be Supply Chain versus Supply Chain’
a 2 day DMi Leading Edge Workshop
Customers expect service on time in full at the lowest cost and highest quality. Unlike the 1970s when the ‘supplier was king’ today the ‘customer is king’ and they/we expect more responsiveness, greater flexibility and more value. Therefore customer focus in terms of product, service and value are the keys to success. As product functionality and capability continues to converge the future competition and success will not be product versus product – ‘my product is better than the competition’ but supply chain versus supply chain – ‘my supply chain is more efficient and responsive than the competition’ Supply Chain optimisation is a key competitive advantage in todays global market.
