5. Introductions/Project Overview Current Environment Best Practices Investigation Findings Recommendations Business Case Implementation Indirect Material Vision Process Benchmarking

6. Indirect Materials

7. Opportunity for GM Administrative cost is 30-40% based on benchmarking data. Benchmarking data indicates 3 -10% administrative cost is attainable. GM indirect purchases (MRO) - $2 Billion Significant Potential Savings for GM

8. Functional Silos to Process Focused "Old" Paradigm to "New" Paradigm

10. Focus of the Benchmarking Team Business Processes and Practices Non-Value-Added Administrative Activities Reduced Transaction Costs People as our Most Important Resource Skilled Tradesperson is our Primary Customer Technology as an Enabler Process Driven vs. System Driven Single Supplier per Commodity Based on: Integrated Partnering Relationship Long Term Contracts Quality, Service, Price, and Technology Criteria

11. Project Study Maintenance, Repair and Operating supplies (MRO) is the industry term for non-production related materials, parts, supplies and related services. The project will include the entire procurement cycle from need identifica-tion through payment and use. The scope of our study will assess the business best practices in terms of: Customer Need Optimal Facility Layout Material Receipt, Storage and Distribution Supplier Management Procurement Method Supplier Payment Total Cost Driver Analysis (ABC) Process Measurement and Improvement Elimination of Waste

12. Expected Benefits of the Study Achieve an exceptionally high level of customer satisfaction utilizing synchronous multi-functional processes that will result in moving MRO procurement from being perceived as a “roadblock,” to a value-added and cost effective opportunity to improve quality, reduce total cost, and integrate effective purchasing techniques. Other tangible measurements will include: Consolidated Supplier Base Standardized Parts Reduced Inventory Reduced Lead Time Variation Improved Cash Flow More Effective Use of Resources Defined Training and Communication Needs

13. Process Considerations Customer Acquisition Supplier Management Transportation Receiving Storage Internal Distribution Payment

15. GM Indirect Market

16. Skilled Trades ... Our Primary Customer Labor and Material Spending for 1993 - $4.2 Billion Skilled Trades Employment for 1993 - 70,600 This is a large organization. If viewed as a separate business, GM Maintenance would rank as the 32nd largest company in America (In terms of number of employees - Source: April 1993 Fortune 500)

19. Indirect Material Today Voice of the Customer Poor Communication Between Disciplines (Different Objectives) Fire Fighting Mode for all Stakeholders Plant Performance Measures Force Stakeholders to Violate the System Lack of Understanding of Total System Costs Incomplete Information on Supplier Shipping Documents Lack of Trust in the System Creates Hoarding Excessive Obsolete Material Lack of Planned Maintenance Creates “Stockout” Conditions and Unlevel Requirements Unwillingness to use “Generics” Creates Excessive Number of Line Items Part Quality Problems M & E Replacement Parts Not Available

20. Inventories are Excessive - “Don’t Run Out” Mentality Common Code Efforts Wasted Due to “Impurity” in the System and Lack of Knowledge Stores Activity Not Customer Oriented Too Much Floor Space Taken up by Indirect Material - Workplace Organization Required No System/Process in Place to Effectively Screen “New” Items Excessive Walk and Wait Times Too Many Suppliers ... and They are Changing Cost Management Focus on Piece Price, Not Total System Cost Buyers Overloaded - Hurts Response Time Long Lead Times on Spot Buys High Administrative Costs for Spot Buy and MBO Purchase Orders
