Digital Transformation in Supply Chain Management

Digital Transformation in Supply Chain ManagementIntroduction

The Impact of Digital Transformation on Supply Chain Management

Virtually all technologies and techniques that are currently being discussed within the scope of “digital transformation” have an immediate impact on supply chain management – that is, procurement, production and logistics. To name some examples: the Internet of Things (IoT) will change how assets are monitored and deployed; artificial intelligence (AI), with its ability to derive insights and prescriptions from huge amounts of relevant data, will give rise to completely new models and planning paradigms in logistics, manufacturing and procurement; automation (robotics) on the shop floor and in the warehouse will have a major impact on value creating and supporting processes; in-memory computing, new algorithms, and more powerful hardware will change the clock speed of supply chain planning and execution.

Among experts there is little doubt that these developments will happen – sooner or later – and most experts agree that this will have a disruptive impact on how manufacturing companies run their supply chains. The unresolved question is, however, what it needs to best leverage the potential of the new technologies, and which companies will benefit most from a digital transformation of their supply chain.

This session will focus on how companies have to adapt their supply chain organization (and the skillsets of their supply chain professionals) to truly achieve digital transformation and to benefit from the new technologies and digital opportunities. Based on cases, examples, applications, and recent developments in supply chain software we will discuss and develop a perspective on the future “digital supply chain organization”.

The objective is to provide the participant with a structured foundation in the preparation and conduct of such negotiations. Since practice is key in building up expertise in negotiation, case studies and exercises/games will be used to supplement lectures.

Total Cost Analysis

Total Cost AnalysisIntroduction

Often procurement decisions are still made on piece costs ignoring supply chain and other indirect costs. In the world of global sourcing such decisions can end up being very expensive mistakes. In this course, the focus is on developing the skills to correctly evaluate total landed costs (TLC) and estimate total costs of ownership (TCO) if applicable.

Participants will learn how to apply TLC and TCO to make improved sourcing decisions through hands-on team exercises and discussions.

Date : Tuesday Dec 3 (9.00 am – 5:00 pm)
Venue: Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation

Supplier Relationship Management

Supplier Relationship ManagementIntroduction

Procurement is not a “buy and forget” task. In most cases, significant effort has to be expended in supplier relationship management after the contract has been signed and the material begins to flow. In this course, several key elements of good supplier relationship management (SRM) will be discussed.

Participants should be conversant with SRM and capable of framing a SRM program for their suppliers at the end of this course. While SRM is often considered a “soft” skill and not valued as highly as say “cost reduction”, with today’s pace of technology change SRM becomes key to staying atop the competition through leveraging supplier innovation capability.

Business Analytics

Introduction

As a consequence of decades of information technology deployment, organizations today have more information at hand than ever before. But in many cases the information is not being utilized to out-think their rivals. Thus organizations are missing out on a potent competitive tool.

This course covers methodologies and practices that are important for data analytics and discuss their relevance in various functional domains. It is designed for professionals who need a managerial introduction to this discipline.

This course will introduce participants to some of the most widely used modeling techniques and their core principles. By taking this course, participants will form a solid foundation of analytics, which refers to tools and techniques for building statistical models to make predictions based on data. This course is designed for those who are interested in using data to gain insights and make better business decisions. It would also improve managerial and leadership capabilities of participants.

Through interactive case discussions, assignments and experience sharing, the participants will be introduced to several elements of data analytics tools and execution techniques. Participants will be provided with selected reading materials before the program. All sessions will be of 90 minutes each. The program will provide an analytical view of decision making and insights into descriptive and predictive analytics with an introduction to prescriptive analytics. The program outline will follow the following schedule.

Forecasting and Inventory Management

Forecasting and Inventory ManagementIntroduction

Forecasting and inventory management are two crucial logistics activities that affect a company’s profitability and ability to remain competitive in the long run. Effective management of these processes ensures that the company will have the right product available at the right place and time in the right amount to satisfy the needs of its customers. Ability to forecast demand more accurately and manage inventory more cost effectively to meet the demand allows a company to provide superior customer service than its competitors and grow its revenue. On the other hand, poor forecasting and inventory management can diminish a company’s reputation to be a reliable partner. This is valid for the business whose “customer” is the end consumer (such as retail, restaurants, etc.) as well as for companies whose customers are other companies (such as raw material suppliers, component manufacturers, maintenance and repair organizations maintaining service parts, etc.). The present course introduces the participants to the practice of forecasting and inventory management and provides a broad overview of various tools used in the industry for this exercise. This is an introductory course in forecasting and inventory management that uses case studies and qualitative analysis. The course does not cover any analytical models of forecasting or inventory management in detail (these topics are covered in an advanced course).
