Rigidity is the enemy of any supply line. We must maintain fluidity in the motion of logistics. This training will provide valuable information on both hard and soft processes that can be adopted that will result in an improved supply stream that is both strong and flexible.
We will consider processes that harden the exterior surface against outside forces. We will also look at the application of completely different processes that cause the interior composition to be more flexible, pliable, and at the same time resilient.
A New Perspective:
The Hard Exterior: C-TPAT, ISA, Trusted Trader
The C-TPAT program was specifically designed to harden the exterior of your supply stream against physical threats, as well as addressing trade compliance and enforcement. It is a top to bottom approach to security that provides measurable, repeatable action driven initiatives that combine elements of compliance that, hopefully, also yield trade advantages for its participants.
US law makers have challenged US Customs & Border Protection to expand the 12,000 membership of C-TPAT to some 40,000 certified participants as quickly as possible. The C-TPAT/ISA/Trusted Trader initiatives are well on the way to yielding precisely what the developers are hoping for. However, I believe this is only half of what is needed by the global supply stream. The other half of the answer lies in:
The Pliable Interior: SRM/SSRM
Supplier Relationship Management/Strategic Supplier Relationship Management are precisely some of the elements that are required to bring together the flexible elements of your supply stream. SRM/SSRM matches the decision makers for the customer as well as the supplier (at every level). Customers with their counter parts in the supplier roles to insure that:
- Every decision maker level is matched, customer and supplier.
- Every decision maker role is matched, customer and supplier.
- Everyone uses common communication tools.
- Decision makers act as the result of decisions agreed upon with their counter parts.
- Commitment to communication is paramount.
- Building a supply stream profile
- Identifying supply stream flow restrictors (risk assessment).
- How to apply C-TPAT elements to your business to determine what works for you.
- Examples of how to assimilate government mandated compliance requirements with profit yielding supplier management elements.
- Learn how to manage risk toward forward momentum.
- Why and how to us Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) as a measurement of the Supply Stream.
