Supply Chain Planning is a critical function of every business’s long-term strategies. When planning the supply chain’s mission or charter, key questions arise that refine and focus its mission.
- What do we need produce and when?
- Do we have the right production capacity and logistics mechanisms?
- Can our inventory levels sustain and allow for supply and demand fluctuations?
- What impacts to working capital are driven by fluctuating transportation costs, IT and electronic implementation or convergence?
