effective supply chain strategies


In a recent study, supply chain leaders attributed more than 7% improvement in cash flow and 6% improvement in gross profit to a successful Sales and Operations Planning process.

Sales and Operations planning has been around for some time with organisations at different levels of maturity, and often it does not achieve the collaborative way of working that we all hope for.

By applying classic S&OP theory in a flexible but structured way he implementation process can be accelerated to achieve stronger cross functional engagement and faster results compared to a simple “cut and paste” solution.                                 

Chris Hatcher, Supply Chain Manager at Highland Spring, the UK’s leading Bottled Water Producer will share the story of their recent S&OP journey. He will present a story of why a rapidly growing business needed to transform their approach and create an integrated truly collaborative framework enabling Highland Spring to turn around customer service performance and manage their business in a new, highly profitable way.

Sustainability is at the forefront of business strategy for companies depending on natural commodities. Concern for their corporate reputations and the long-term supply of raw materials has led companies to commit to a wide range of schemes to increase transparency, ethics and environmental management in their supply chains. These include international standards, voluntary certification schemes, individual company and industry-wide initiatives. Non for Profit Organisations (NGO’s) play a critical role in those commitments. This presentation will look at how Rainforest Alliance works with companies on these different approaches and consider what kind of demands they make on companies as they strive to integrate sustainability into every-day business decision-making.

Dr Dino Petrarolo (former Group Head for Manufacturing Development at SABMIller) will reference TRACC’s 25 year relationship with SABMiller in this session that will  cover:

  • From Functional to Business Excellence  Most improvement processes start in one function - and reap much benefit.  Some organisations have managed to replicate these successes across multiple functions - resulting in "functional excellence".  But, true Business Excellence comes from adopting a uniform integrative improvement approach across the entire business.
  • A Repeatable Approach  How to harness the application of philosophy, principles and differentiated practices in one system which allows an organisation to repeat its successes in a variety of new contexts.
  • SABMiller:  Performance vs Practice An examination of generic and specific differentiated practices and their effect on operational performance and company KPIs at SABMiller.
  • Supply Chain Excellence  The application of best practices within the entire supply chain (from suppliers to customers), as well as the support services that enable Supply Chain Excellence.
  • Benchmarking  A standardised approach to measurement.  Reviewing your organisational performance and practices against yourself, relative to others within the same organisation, relative to one’s industry and finally, relative to any industry is key to Supply Chain Excellence.

Exclusively to SCL 2014, DIno will also focus on results from the Global Integrative Improvement Benchmarking Survey - a unique and growing study of Continuous Improvement initiatives within leading manufacturers.

Is there anything better than putting on last year’s jacket and finding money in the pocket? The money was right there, but hidden just below the surface. Much like that money in your coat, there are numerous supply chain cost saving opportunities that are hidden just below the surface at most companies. You can utilize supply chain modeling technologies like these to uncover that money:

  • Product flow-path optimization
  • Demand segmentation and inventory right-sizing
  • Production footprint analysis
  • Transportation route optimization

Learn these four key modeling techniques used by many leading companies to “find” money in the supply chain, including real-life examples of how these technologies have been applied and the cost savings that were uncovered.

breakfast briefing

Supply Chain is now represented at Executive Board level in the Business Units of over 50% of Value Chain organisations across all sectors worldwide.

There are key challenges in integrating Supply Chain Strategy with Business strategy, and in the successful implementation of strategic change, with research showing that companies face only a 50:50 chance of success.

There are clear key factors that impact on successful SC strategic change and these need to be taken up in the Board Rooms of those businesses that want to succeed in leveraging SC for business advantage in a competitive market place.

This session will explore the barriers and enablers of successful strategic change, including the involvement and ownership of board functions and country business units for change programmes, and the key drivers of business performance at individual and corporate levels.

Participants will take away a better understanding of the real business benefits and risks of moving towards world class SC excellence, with insight into the practical issues faced by businesses, together with an understanding of the practical action areas to be focussed on in developing and implementing strategic change in SC.

Spaces at this session are limited. If you would like to attend then please contact the Programme Director, Chris Chapman via chris.chapman@wtgevents.com.

breakfast briefing

Only the most profitable survive in today’s business climate.

While companies strive to boost sales, cut costs, and increase market share – no business model can withstand a lack of profit.

Understanding net profitability can be a challenge.

Many companies are drowning in data, unable to determine true end to end costs.

Organizations know they have unprofitable customers, SKUs, product lines, and channels, but it is complex to identify where the problems lies.

Increasingly, companies are looking for solutions that deliver the level of detail needed to pinpoint the problems and provide answers to how to improve net profits, and ultimately earnings per share.

Acorn Systems and Solving Efeso will introduce an innovative solution to End to End Cost to Serve.

A solution to help businesses to:

  • Identify the activities and costs incurred to service customers; from the point of order through to the product being delivered and where possible, to the Customer’s shelf.
  • Implement multi-criteria improvement plans to sustainably optimise the end to end chain, collaboratively reducing waste in lead-time, resources, inventory and equipment

“It’s an end-to-end visible cycle and a way to build a repeatable and scalable capability to manage cost to serve and improve profitability.

A partnership between Acorn systems - the profitability and cost management software vendor and  Solving Efeso that brings strategic, operations and change management capabilities in one integrated team.

Participants will take away an understanding how a robust profitability model can challenges long held beliefs about what business segments are successful, and which are not,  together with an understanding how to implement multi-criteria improvement plans to sustainably optimise the end to end chain. In addition, the participant will learn how Acorn’s and Solving Efeso Partnership capabilities provide a flexible, scalable, and automated solution to generate granular cost to serve based net profit results across all relevant business dimensions.

In a world that is constantly moving, every day we are pushed to live and work in a state of uncertainty about the future, we are asked to manage volatility, to defend ourselves from more aggressive competitors, to increase investments while access to credit is difficult to obtain. Stanley Black & Decker is facing this challenge through the implementation of the Stanley Fulfillment System (SFS). SFS is not just a tool, it is not just a theory, it is not just an expected result, rather it is a way of thinking and acting on everything we do.

  • Understand SFS in action from a manufacturing plant point of view, mainly focusing on the “Sell 1 Replenish 1” program and on lean theories implemented across the entire supply chain, from customers of our customers to vendors of our vendors.
  • Explore the Stanley Black & Decker the supply chain that has been created for a specific product family to respond to our customers’ needs in terms of goods availability (service level), quality and cost, considering at the same time, the company’s overall objective to improve working capital turns.
