Optimized supply chain leads to happy customers

Most companies operate with the belief that if they had control of all their business activities everything will be smooth: costs will be controlled, Inventory will be at the right levels, customers are happy, accounts receivables are under control and profits will soar. Little do they know that they are building walls around them separating them from the external factors that contribute to the success or failure of the company.

There are numerous external factors that contribute to dismantling these walls and leaving the company exposed to the elements of failure. These external factors are increased competition both from local and global markets, rapidly changing customer demands and the volatile world economic factors.

Companies that focus their attention only inside the walls they have built wonder why they are having inventory shortages or overages, logistics problems, customer retention issues, difficulty with aftermarket sales and off course cash flow issues.

Value chains are a large network of contributors which involves not only the flow of materials but the flow of information. Supply chain optimization delivers value by the cooperation of the multiple players within the supply chain. Every weak link in the supply chain players contributes to diminishing customer value.
