Building quality management into the end-to-end production process requires solid supply chain optimization techniques. From the raw materials to customer delivery, optimizing the supply chain will help increase efficiency while reducing waste. Optimizing the supply chain configuration can flux with costs of materials, carrier changes, customer demographics, and other factors. This session will focus on how organizations can de-risk supply chain practices to improve the bottom line, the implications of investing in product manufacturing, and how to leverage a GPO to assist in these activities.
1. Evaluate how de-risking the supply chain can improve the bottom line for an organization.
2. Analyze if it is smart to invest in product manufacturing.
3. Identify how to leverage a GPO to assist in de-risking.
4. Define solid supply chain optimization techniques.
