How Supply Chain Capabilities Work?
Execution involves sourcing raw materials, manufacturing products, and delivering them to customers in a timely and efficient manner. This includes managing inventory levels, scheduling production, and arranging transportation.
Monitoring involves tracking and measuring the performance of the supply chain. This includes tracking inventory levels, order fulfillmentfulfilment rates, and on-time delivery rates.
Collaboration involves working effectively with suppliers, customers, and other partners to optimizeoptimise the supply chain. This includes sharing information, coordinating activities, and developing joint plans.
Supply chain capabilities work together to help companies achieve their supply chain goals, such as reducing costs, improving customer satisfaction, and increasing profitability.
Here is an example of how supply chain capabilities work in practice:
A company that sells electronics products has developed a new smartphone. The company uses its supply chain planning capabilities to forecast demand for the new smartphone and to determine how many smartphones to produce. The company also uses its supply chain execution capabilities to source the raw materials needed to produce the smartphones, to manufacture the smartphones, and to deliver the smartphones to customers.
The company uses its supply chain monitoring capabilities to track the performance of the supply chain. For example, the company tracks inventory levels of the new smartphone, order fulfillmentfulfilment rates, and on-time delivery rates.
The company also uses its supply chain collaboration capabilities to work effectively with its suppliers. For example, the company works with its suppliers to develop new production processes and to improve the efficiency of the manufacturing process.
By using its supply chain capabilities effectively, the company is able to meet the demand for the new smartphone, to reduce costs, and to improve customer satisfaction.
