Supply chain management has become tremendously important in an increasingly competitive marketplace. The term “supply chain” refers to the entire network of companies working together to design, produce, deliver and service products. While many companies focus on manufacturing and quality improvements within their organization, the best companies extend their efforts beyond their organization to encompass the entire supply chain.
Most companies struggle with even the basics of balancing supply and demand in their supply chains. For example, supply chain professionals know sales and an operation planning (S and OP) is important to your company. However, few companies can actually say they have a strong S and OP process in their business. This interactive training session can change that.
