Network effects following the reduction than removal of entities that play a role in a multi-network chain of supply.

Introduction

A global manufacture was consistently adding/extending debt for working capital. The structure of the debt helped maintain operations however was a burden on expansion and investments in innovation. They needed to fuel R&D which has a ROI on research around 24 months.

Why did the profit on operations not provide adequate cash flow?

Common issues in established companies creates an compounding and cascading effect. This shows up as labor costs (adding more people to solve problems) which in turn decreases business speed.

Demand forecasting, materials buffers, resource availability and productivity. The outcome of these pain points presents themselves on the Balance Sheet, Income Statement and Cash Flow (Working capital).

Always working on the supply chain means you are solving our businesses fundamentals. Leaving you and room to innovate, expand and absorb unforeseen.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”60px”][vc_column_text]

Pain Points

Demand forecasts are arriving directly or indirectly though distribution channels (networks). When committed late, with errors or have over/under estimation you begin to experience oscillation inside your companies supply chain.

You now added labor cost, and time investment to adjust to these errors. The buffers you add while solve the immediate challenges have provided a Even when solved the cost is absorbed but the oscillation does not dissipate until that event has been resolved.

An oscillation at onset continues long after the issue was introduced. It continues and then cascades into Functional groups and there activities. It is assumed to be concluded with finished goods shop and receivables payed. However it is not the case.

A Supply chain is only as strong as its connected entities. It is truly an eco-system where every partner can strengthen or weaken it.

Up or down stream are all affected in specific ways. So lets unpack these outcomes and explain.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

Manufacturing cost model(s)

Here we will get you acquainted with a few concepts. Each perspective and business approach we explain a Supply Chain and root causes and outcomes

Exhibit 1 – Every business or activity has a flow. Something triggers a person or system to start a series of activities. This is showing the totality of a company in great health vs avg health.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”60px”][vc_column_text]

Manufacturing cost model(s)

Here we will get you acquainted with a few concepts. Each perspective and business approach we explain a Supply Chain and root causes and outcomes

Exhibit 1.1 – Zooming into a business you reveal Functional groups. Each perform a part of a business duty. When each of the duties or workflows work well the company wins a contract, finishes a production run or as a whole creates profit.

Our thesis reveals the reality. Human-to-human, System-to-human, System-to-system and System-to-human each contribute to the oscillations through a series of human errors, business integration and or business language non standardized.

Colors represent Functional Groups. Each group has a set of Activities which are carried out by Roles (people assigned responsibilities)which feeds into the businesses workflow. The activities within each have a productivity level required to achieve current speed. Accuracy and pace are based on natural human error and supply partners and employee (IDL and DL) capabilities.

Exhibit 1.2 – The supply chain at level 3 begins to reveal resources working together.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section css=”.vc_custom_1583688271923{background-color: #fafafa !important;}”][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”1px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][stack_boxed_content shadow=”box-shadow”][vc_column_text]
