What are the dimensions of the agile supply chain?

The concept of Agility

  • Key issue


The concept of agility1
The concept of Agility

  • Market sensitive

    • Supply chain is capable of reading and responding to real demand

  • Virtual

    • Information-based supply chain, rather than inventory-based.

Agile supply chain


The concept of agility2
The concept of Agility

  • Network based

    • EDI and internet enable partners in the supply chain to act upon the real demand

  • Process integration

    • Collaborative working between buyers and suppliers, joint product development, common systems and shared information

Agile supply chain


The concept of agility3

Efficiency, cost

end-customers become more knowledgeable about product

Lean supply chain

1980’s

Focus

Agile supply chain

1990’s

Responsiveness

The concept of Agility

  • Demand characteristics and supply capabilities

Supply characteristics

Hold inventory: hedge and deploy

Plan and control

Long lead time

React and execute: agile capabilities

Short lead time

JIT: pull scheduling

Demand characteristics

Predictable market

Unpredictable markets

The concept of agility9
The concept of Agility

  • Preconditions for successful agile practice

    • Enterprise-level reality check

    • Cost of complexity sanity check

    • Lowering the cost of complexity: avoiding overly expensive agility

    • Forecasting: reduce the need for last minutes crises

      • External: demand forecast

      • Internal: financial forecast, asset forecast

Agile practices

How can we use agile practices to benefit from turbulence in the marketplace?

1

Agile practices

  • Key issue


Agile practices1
Agile practices the marketplace?

  • Three characteristics of supply chain operations related to agile

    • Mastering and benefiting from variation in demand;

    • Very fast response to market opportunities;

    • Unique or low volume response.


Agile practices2

Demand variance the marketplace?

Time

Agile practices

  • Benefiting from variance

    • Three sources of demand uncertainty

      • Seasonality

      • Product life cycles

      • End-customer demand


Agile practices3

Organize the marketplace?

Adjust

Volume

Agile capability is needed

Start up

Micro-markets

variety

Agile practices

  • Benefiting from variance

    • Three sources of demand uncertainty

      • Seasonality

      • Product life cycles

      • End-customer demand


Agile practices4
Agile practices the marketplace?

  • Benefiting from short time windows

    • Decreased D-time requires different levels of agility (VMI & QR)

      • Speed of replenishment

      • Upstream time sensitivity

      • Information dissemination and alignment


Agile practices5
Agile practices the marketplace?

  • Benefiting from small volume

    • Small volume is a result of micro-markets, customization and rapid responsiveness.

    • Three approaches of agile strategy related to small volume

      • Changeover flexibility

      • Modularity at the network level

      • Service-based and information-based solutions


Agile practices6

Variety decrease the marketplace?

Mass production

Flexibility

Modular supply network

Craft production

Volume decrease

Agile practices

  • Benefiting from small volume
