Focussing on supply chain during recession

Posted on 2 Apr 2009 by The Manufacturer

A series of programmes for improved supply chain performance has been announced by Oliver Wight, a global business improvement specialist.

The firm’s ‘FAST TRACK’ series consists of seven individual elements. They are:

• working capital reduction;
• order-to-cash time compression;
• product portfolio optimisation;
• supplier cost improvement;
• engineering spares re-profiling;
• customer order fulfilment; and
• capacity utilisation improvement.

Each programme provides an analysis of the business and a process for supply chain optimisation, root-cause analysis and solutions development. Delegates will also receive a tool kit to drive continuous improvement, with a set of performance measures to benchmark improvement against.

There will be a series of preceding seminars where people interested in the programme can find out more about it.
