  2. An efficient supply chain is vital for businesses to deliver their products to the consumers who want or need them. As the global marketplace continues to evolve, supply chain managers must think more innovatively and proactively to balance product flow and costs throughout a product’s life cycle. Objective
  3. Innovation • Innovation is the development of new customer value through solutions that meet new needs, unarticulated needs, or old customer and market needs in new ways. • This is accomplished through different or more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or ideas that are readily available to markets, governments, and society. • Innovation is not equal to Invention or Improvement. • In short “doing things differently”
  4. Supply Chain Management • Supply chain management spans all movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. • Another definition is provided by the APICS (American Production and Inventory Control Society) Dictionary when it defines SCM as the "design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally."

  6. Innovations that changed Supply Chain Management
  7. #1. Container & Cranes The box that changed the world • It gave the world an unit to ship • Standardized the size and capacity • Set tariffs across a distance • Defined the capacity of ships • Road transport and trucking • Helped warehousing to measure and build capacity. • Helped manufacturer and traders in making and ordering decisions.
  8. • Movement made easy • Storage made easy • Counting made easy • Stock taking made easy • Air Freight made easy #2. Pallets & Forklifts Movement of goods made easy
  9. • Systematic storage • Stock taking became easy • Segregation of Fast Moving vs slow moving goods • Facilitated unique location • More capacity #3. Racking system and VNA Storage of goods made easy
  10. • Stock replenishment • Tracking • Intelligence building • Real-time data • Facilitated planning #4. Barcoding & RFID Tracking and data collection
  11. • Improved efficiency • Reduced the lead time • Reduced the cost • Simplified production and also principles were applied across the supply chain #5. Production line and LEAN Productivity and process management
  12. • Computer facilitated the computation of complex formulas and large amount of data • Facilitated analysis and trends • Web enabled data sharing • Real-time data analysis • Conversion of data #6. Computer & Web technology The power of computation and connecting
  13. • Real time data capturing • Simplification of process • Shorter processes • Enabling data conversion • Facilitates quick analysis • Speed in response • Less paperwork #7. Mobile & Communication The speed of communication
  14. • Streamlining processes • Quick access to information • Best business practices • Improved efficiency • Improved customer satisfaction • Improved on-time delivery • Reduced inventory costs • Better planning, tracking and forecasting #8. DRP & ERP Distribution and Resource planning
  15. #9 DTS & TMS Dedicated Transport and management • Improved financing, cash- flow • Increase visibility • Reliability • Route mapping and optimisation • Optimisation of resources • Integration
  16. • Reduce excess inventory • Improve cash flow • Forecast demand • Reduce gut feel risks • Improve availability • Improve customer satisfaction • Better return on investment #10. Inventory & Demand planning Reduce costs and improve availability
  17. • Deal with greater levels of complexity • Manage longer lead times and uncertain supply • Deal with bigger production runs and supply constraints • Different modes of transport • Network optimisation #11. Inventory Optimisation Creating a strategic advantage
  18. • Global supply chain network modelling with mapping, locations and road network databases for any combination of countries in the world. • Reach your full supply chain planning potential • Carbon Footprint mapping #12. Supply Chain design and network modelling End to end supply chain solutions
  19. • Supplier demand planning • Manufacturer demand planning • Wholesaler / distributor Inventory planning • Retailer Inventory planning • Consumer Value / Price All these major points are connected with one or the other forms of transportation. • Production planning, ERP • Demand Planning, Distribution planning, network modeling, Inventory optimisation • Warehousing and Distribution • Air Freight, Sea Freight, Sea Air, Road, Rail, multimodal Areas for innovation
  20. The future of Supply Chain Technology We as a supply chain industry haven’t used the available technology to the full extent. Collaboration • The supply of goods moves from one network to another network therefore collaboration amongst these networks is very important. i.e. Suppliers and their suppliers, customers and their customers (if applicable). • Collaboration with government bodies, regional legal and tax compliance, association and international norms and regulations are some of the areas also calls for the collaboration. Planning and Strategic alignment • Improve Customers performance • From suppliers order point to customers demand point
  21. • Drag reduction 35-43% • Fuel saving 7-10% • Monthly saving is AED 4250 • Carbon reduction 14 Tons in 6 months The Green Trailer
