17. Current process/SW in SCM overcomes
Lack of visibility: Large corporations were left with too much inventory when the
recession hit and too little when demand picked up in 2009. “Users are looking at
applications like sales and operations planning, transportation management and
asset management applications that can be leveraged to track goods in motion,”
Enabling corporate strategy: Everyone wants to reduce costs, but increasingly
businesses are targeting supply chains to improve overall corporate viability,
especially customer service.
Total landed cost: Blame high transportation costs, increasing wages in emerging
markets and multi-channel sales and distribution strategies, but companies are
taking a more analytical look at what it costs to fill an online order versus a store
and what is the total cost to source in Mexico versus China.
