“Strategy without process is little more than a wish list.” – Robert Flick

It is commonly believed that “people are a company’s best resource”

It is commonly believed that “people are a company’s best resource”. After all, people are the source of ingenuity and best practices. What happens, though, when best practices are not followed? What if only 1% of the time?

Throughout the part lifecycle, these defined strategies help ensure success. For a given part or material, for a given supplier or supplier classification, and for a given stage in the lifecycle, you want to ensure that your strategies for the best outcome are followed at that point in time, every time.

Supply chain management strategies software
  • Are your sourcing strategies, supplier strategies, and product group strategies sitting in a repository hoping people will use them? Or worse, being exchanged via email?
  • Does your system apply process, and/or data, variations based on geography, organizational unit, supplier type, material/product group, and more?
  • How to you ensure that your strategies have been executed upon? For example, what if you always want The ABC Company to bid on a specific part but they were mistakenly omitted from the RFQ?

Unfortunately, many organizations still have disjointed part lifecycles, making it difficult to institutionalize their strategies across all stages of the process.
