Supply Chain Management
Supply chain management is an important sub-area of logistics planning.
All processes, structures and communication channels between suppliers and manufacturers are considered here.
MCG covers the planning of new product ramp-ups here in supply logistics, as well as the optimisation of existing logistics processes.
In the early phase the communication processes must be defined first with new product ramp-ups. To do this, the EDP systems and communication channels must be defined, set up and checked together with the interface partners.
Programme planning, retrievals, orders and sequence formations in various stages are the topics that must be defined and coordinated before anything else. Professional change management is the basis of success here.
Difficulties can also arise in series production in the overall process chain. Critical individual components from sub-suppliers are the most frequent triggers of risks to stock security here. Supply security is guaranteed with adapted contingency plans, interface agreements and training.
