Supply chain visibility tools (SCV tools) are an essential component in any modern supply chain. Understanding where your stock is at any point in time from supplier to final destination only goes to improve and strengthen your supply chain. This of course being the ultimate goal of any supply chain visibility solution. Of course visibility is only part of the equation the thing is being able to respond quickly to changes, issues, and errors. The better and more timely the information is available to those who need it, the faster responses and actions can be applied. With increasing supply chain complexity the challenges increase for attaining the right levels of visibility and information available throughout the entire supply chain. This coupled up with an even greater need to be able to increase customer satisfaction in highly competitive markets drives the requirement for better visibility tools.
Improving Supply Chain visibility.
As Retail and Supply Chain Specialists there it is no surprise that at Sigma we have developed several visibility tools and management processes of our own. Many of these are designed to help our customers understand their requirements and best utilise existing systems or indeed establish the requirements and understand the benefits of a new system or additional support software and process.
Visibility strengthens and improves your supply chain.
Irrespective of the supply chain systems that are in place, the requirements for establishing good supply chain visibility are clearly outlined by the advantages that every business should be enjoying. There are many benefits and these should include:
♦ Improved customer availability and potential sales.
♦ Reduced end of season and campaign write down.
♦ Decreased supply chain handling costs from DC store.
♦ Reduced stock, safety buffers, excess ordering, end to end pipeline.
♦ Meeting increasing customer requirements for shorter lead times with confidence.
♦ Reducing missed opportunities.
♦ Improved decision making through sharing quality information.
♦ Resolving issues and deploying solutions faster with an information enriched supply chain.
Working with Legacy Systems.
Whilst some organisations choose to invest in modern and sometimes expensive solutions, others are committed to using existing legacy systems, sometimes for some years ahead. Whilst we work with customers in identifying their requirements and sourcing a new solution we also recognise that sometimes you also have to work with what you have got. That being said the requirements for information and supply chain visibility must still be delivered to keep up with a expanding and ever diverse supply chain.
Supply Chain visibility is a requirement irrespective of legacy systems.
