The supply chain manager must communicate his needs and objectives to line managers and key personnel in procurement, development/manufacturing, logistics and distribution. This will help the entire team understand the timing required and individual input necessary to make the process run smoothly. Any miscommunication of expectations could generate costly delays.
ost Reduction and Process Improvement is an ongoing requirement for the supply chain manager. If a service or raw material can be purchased cheaper from a new supplier, without jeopardizing quality, then the change should be made. If a process can be improved or sped up, then productivity could possibly be increased. This ongoing task is continually being examined within the supply chain itself. Cost reductions and increases in productivity usually equal higher profits.
The chain manager will train, develop, mentor and assist his subordinates in all of the departments that fall within the supply chain process. It is essential that the various components of the team function effectively. Constant process and employee review is needed to ensure that the process stays cost effective. Supply chain management is an intense, process-oriented career. It is about making the processes of procurement, development, logistics and distribution as cost effective as possible.
