SCM – How to succeed in an unpredictable world
Take a new perspective into improving your supply Chain!
Dr Lisa Lang
Lisa Lang has served as the Global Marketing Director for Dr Eli Goldratt, father of Theory of Constraints and author of The Goal.
Maximizing Supply Chain Profitability using Theory of Constraints
Most supply chains are driven by forecasts. But, the only thing we know for sure about a forecast is that it’s wrong. So for supply chains to increase their effectiveness, there needs to be a move from forecast driven to consumption driven. The challenge is that most supply chains have been using forecasts for so long, they have no idea about how to make the switch. Without this switch inventory levels, inventory turns and the sluggishness we’ve all come to expect will return to pre-2008 levels (if they haven’t already).
In this highly interactive presentation, “Dr Lisa” Lang will discuss how to make this switch, along with:
- How to make management decisions that are aligned with profitability goals
- How to increase profitability by increasing capacity with no corresponding increase in expenses or capital investment
- How to create a “Mafia Offer” that allows this newly created capacity to be sold
If you are frustrated with your profit level and are tired of chasing constraints, then this event is for you!
Supply Chain Measures the Theory of Constraints Way
Measures are important and powerful tools for aligning and synchronizing behavior between “silos” of a company and between companies in a Supply Chain. “Tell me how you measure me and I’ll tell you how I’ll behave”.
- describe the undesirable effects directly resulting from commonly used traditional financial and operational measures (including those stemming from pricing and/or transfer pricing)
- share the TOC measures appropriate for make-to-order, make-to-stock, and make-to-availability supply chain environments
- demonstrate how the use of TOC measures can dramatically improve the performance and competitiveness of supply chains.
