  • Life Sciences Industry Inventory Optimization Health Check
    Over the last 100 years the average lifespan has doubled from 35 years to more than 70 years mostly due to advances in medicine and medical devices. In fact, experts predict that babies being born in developed countries today could have an average life expectancy approaching 100 years. Not many will argue against the benefits of advanced healthcare, but many believe we can get there at a lower cos...

  • Time for a Supply Chain Metrics Cleaning
    Temperatures on the rise; flowers and trees in bloom; and that time of year when we start to think of the annual ritual—spring cleaning. Wait, it’s not spring; but does that mean you have to wait another eight months to review your supply chain? Often, it becomes necessary to reevaluate how supply chain performance is measured to ensure healthy operations. Ask yourself, “Are your supply chain metr...

  • Supply Chain Planning Fireworks
    Holidays are complex. Take for example the upcoming Fourth of July holiday in the US. As a child, this holiday always represented the best of the summer break and often included fun activities like camping, fishing, spending time in a park, parades, and wonderful firework displays. Of course there was always the abundance of kid friendly foods like hot dogs, hamburgers, bratwurst, watermelon (and ...

  • The Talent Gap
    What It Is, Why We Have It, and Some Simple Ideas to Fill the Gap Rising Demand At recent supply chain user conferences, a major concern for many companies was the talent gap in supply chain. This is an urgent issue for corporations to address, since the gap stymies growth, dampens innovative ideas and programs, and limits problem solving on a day-to-day level.   Supply chain talent shortages pl...

  • The Two Levers of Inventory Optimization
    When I hear the term “Lever” my mechanical engineering side comes out and I think of the Physics and Mechanical Design courses I took some 30+ years ago. Although I didn’t appreciate it at the time, my engineering education laid a strong foundation that has helped me be as successful as possible in whatever I did. More than anything, I learned how to analyze and solve problems. So when I think of ...

  • Mobile Collaboration - Supply Chain Planning at Your Fingertips
    I “enjoyed” a rather turbulent ride on a recent flight into Denver International Airport the other day. From my days as a flight test engineer, I know that modern jets have a forward-looking weather radar to help minimize the type of exciting rides I experienced that afternoon. However, it isn’t always possible to avoid all those pockets of turbulence; which is why it is always a good idea to head...

  • Supply Chain Professional – Protector of Mother Earth
    I grew up in a time when people didn’t think that often about one’s impact on nature. When the first Earth Day took place in the US in 1970, it was a very small event compared with the world-wide phenomenon it has become today.   A common definition of being Green is “the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources,” and thereby supporting long-term ecological ba...

  • All I Want in My Easter Basket is a Supply Chain Planning System of Record
    Supply chain professionals are asked on a daily basis for what can seem like miracles: improve customer service and reduce costs, do more with less. There are only so many hours in a day and only so many days in a week! Working long hours over extended periods leads to diminished productivity and value delivered. So what’s the answer? Look at the process enabling tools. Specifically, what does y...

  • Taming the Long Tail of Inventory
    Have you ever had something break only to realize the fix is an obscure part? Recently, I found myself in this very situation. My 17-year old refrigerator stopped dispensing cubed ice which required me to go through the extra effort of opening the door to grab ice from the bucket. The fix was an obscure part (mainly due to the age of the refrigerator). I imagine you are asking yourself, why would ...

  • Simplify Supply Chain Forecasting
    Is 100% forecast accuracy attainable? Should it be? Wouldn’t that be called an order?   Anyone that has ever had to forecast demand for products or services knows that obtaining a consistently high forecast accuracy is part science and part magic. Minimizing forecast error requires a background in data analysis and statistics while also having a solid understanding of the products, markets and cus...

  • Is Your Supply Chain Planning System in the Cloud?
    My job requires a fair bit of air travel so I literally spend a good deal of my time with my head in the clouds. At 6’5” most airline seats are less than comfortable and provide very little leg, arm and shoulder room, so I often find the most practical activity during a flight is critical thinking. Yes, I might look like I am taking a nap but really I am deeply contemplating things like the curren...

  • Constraints, Constraints, Constraints: Building the Optimal Supply Chain
    I am constantly amazed that an automotive manufacturer will design and market vehicles with top-end speeds of 180+ MPH and 0-60 speeds in the sub 4 second range. Don’t get me wrong, I own three vehicles with 5.7L Hemi engines so I love powerful vehicles. However, considering the top legal speed in most of the United States is 70 or 75 MPH and most stop and go driving takes place where speed limits...

  • Tips to Fine-Tune Your Forecast
    I am an avid cyclist and recently I was able to secure a great deal on a trike from Taiwan. One of the reasons for that great deal was the line “some assembly required” in the description. Being a mechanical engineer earlier in my career, I figured this would be a snap. Well, let’s just say it took a bit longer to assemble than I originally anticipated and I am still fine-tuning the settings to ac...

  • Supply Chain Metrics - Gaining Visibility in a Data-rich World
    The late consultant, educator, and author, Peter Drucker, is often quoted as saying "you can't manage what you can't measure.” This holds just as true today as the day it was first said. I would take this a step further and say you can't know whether or not you are successful unless you have also defined what success is and track against that definition. The second part of Drucker’s quote, “if you...

    It’s an omni-channel world out there. Mobile and e-commerce customers expect to receive the same experience and service regardless of where or how they shop. Of course, customers do differ from store to store, and online desktop shoppers can be different from mobile app shoppers.
