Today’s supply chains need to be integrated into the overall business plan to ensure it meets the needs of the company and contributes to the strategy set forth by the company.
Identify one area of a supply chain in your company or a company you are familiar with where you see a gap between the supply chain objectives and the company’s strategy for meeting customer satisfaction.
Write a 700 word memo to your Supply Chain Leadership that describes the gap and a recommendation for integrating this supply chain element into the overall strategy.
Areas you may want to consider:
- Logistics Management
- Parts Ordering
- Demand Planning
Include the following in your memo:
- Introduction of the company which includes the type of industry, product line(s), and customer types (are customers internal, external, business-to-business, end consumer).
- A clear problem statement in which you define the gap.
- A recommendation.
- A potential benefit to the company and its stakeholders and how it will enhance competitive advantage.
Format your Memo consistent with APA guidelines.
