“You kind of want to manage it (inventory) like you’re in the dairy business. If it gets past its freshness date, you have a problem.” Tim Cook, Apple CEO.
In this book, Suman Sarkar of Three S Consulting tells how you can make sure your inventory is fresh and your supply chain is without the bottlenecks that can impede success. After years of adding new products, customers, and suppliers, a company’s supply chain eventually becomes unmanageable. It becomes a bottleneck–a garden hose so leaky that only a trickle of water emerges from its nozzle. As you fix one leak, water pours from another. The whole organization spends so much time applying patches that it doesn’t have time to think about the future. The way to fix the problem permanently is to simplify customer engagement, the planning processes, and communication with suppliers. In this book, Suman discusses how to fix supply chain bottlenecks with examples from leading companies.
