The APICS Greater Detroit Chapter and AIAG Presents - Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management is undergoing a sea change. Increasingly, we are seeing evidence in the experiences of companies such as Unilever, Coca-Cola, P&G, and others that the supply chain management is changing from being strategically-decoupled, price-driven to being strategically coupled, value-driven. Driving this transition is a different approach to the supply chain - an approach that integrates the supply chain into the business model. This presentation explores this approach. Specifically, it identifies the five key elements that must be present for this transition to take place: (1) understanding and integration with the business model; (2) being outcome-driven, rather than output-driven; (3) recognizing the need for blended outcomes; (4) manage the metrics; and, (5) building linkages to the top. The presentation illustrates this approach by using in-presentation videos and other examples to illustrate the points raised. The presentation concludes with an example of this approach being applied to a company as well as presenting some guidelines for management.
