Watch on-demand: Your people in a time of crisis
How do employers manage the physical, emotional and financial dislocation that Covid-19 is creating in their workforce?
This webinar from The Manufacturer seeks to offer guidance and solutions.
Watch on-demand: Liquidity & Finance
60% of all companies that run out of business report that their failure was due to a lack of liquidity.
In the face of business uncertainty, manufacturers have sharpened their focus on optimising cash flow and liquidity – reducing outgoings, and converting your inventory to sales.
You can only manage what you can see; therefore the first step to mitigating supply chain ‘whiplash’ from the impact of Covid-19 to have visibility of your complete end-to-end supply chain.
This will enable you to understand and activate alternative sources of supply, even as you prepare for plant closures and review alternative outbound logistics options.
How are manufacturers identifying opportunities for cost-avoidance in the face of extreme business uncertainty, what tools can help calculate cost-savings, and what impact will this have on Lean Manufacturing and Operational Excellence?
Every manufacturer who survives this crisis wants to come out it with a roar, but how is that possible when supply chains are in tatters and both customers and suppliers are struggling to calibrate their own businesses?
Understanding the fundamentals of Demand Forecasting will give you an edge, reducing the risk of getting your own supply resourcing dangerously wrong.
