how to create value in supply chain

late 1990s, buyer can buy form country supplier/ factory, quote premium, move to china, cheaper, more capacity

china, land cost low, collect more taxes then from farmers, factories located 1-2 hrs from Hong Kong, retailers, cost of goods decreases, most retailers, no reduction in retail prices

recent years

china, wages increase by 20%, appreciation of RMB, hard to find labour, cost increase


supplier, close business, move to lower price country

China, higer cost, good infrastructure, good mgmt, value added services

moving to 3rd worl country, longer, fabric trim, production lead time, shippign time, less wel etsbalished mgmt, good: lower ex factory cost


apparel trade, first cost may not be best choice

SKU itensity, color, size, style, fabric, example gillett, apparel trade, SKU intensity, huge mark downs

soft $, material cost, prod cost, inventort, operation, sg&a, marked down, profits


case 1, world leading branded garment wholesaler, objective, shorted leadtime, imp service level, inc inventory turn, mgd score card, replenisment time, 150 to 60 days, benefit

case 2, clicks & mortar, non iron shirt, objective, 50% jump in business, partnerships, replenisment, shorten leadtime, mgn sizes, result, inventory turns, incr 7%, in stock rate, incr %%, weekof supply, decr 44%, better plan from supply side

case 3, read & react, better forecast, save money

SKY intensity

SCM, incr sales, decr mark downs

economic environ

slow economy, us, eu, china

diff t make profit


20 years now

few succes cases, why, obstacles buyer side, 1st prio, lwo 1st cost, 2nd prio, manuf side, lowest corst to customers, schedule production, quality, minimal, human rights, okay, environmental

succesful in SCM?, buyer side, common goal, buss model, icr cons satif, max profit, GMROI, gros marging ROI

how to align with supply, communicate, setup goals, score cards, award order to better perform

entire SC, suppliers, common goals: service cust better
