The focus of this work involves aligning a company’s supply chain strategy to its business strategy. In situations of high growth, companies need a flexible supply chain to ensure that their growth plans can be absorbed at an incremental cost. In more certain demand situations companies should aim to ensure that their supply chain operates to optimum levels, with balance between service and cost.
This approach incorporates process, organization, technology, and performance measurement to help executives understand the trade-offs between cost and flexibility in response to margin pressures they may be facing. We also address those trade-offs to achieve the desired balance between cost service levels across the supply chain.
