- Legacy, low volume Part #’s (ABC/ABC)

- Last Time buys

- “C&D” Customers

- Catalog reduction / Portfolio analysis

- Parts consolidation

- Database cleansing

- “D” options

  • - Supplier Consolidation
  • Preferred, leverage suppliers
  • - MOQ’s


- Price

- Lead Times structured

- “Shaping”

- Restrict “promises”

- MOQ negotiations

- Process in-sourcing as appropriate

- Supplier Development

- Legacy, low volume Part #’s - replacements

- Last Time buys

- Component Engineering - discipline


- Sourcing strategies based on ABCD

- Process in-sourcing

- Supplier development

- S&OP / Forecast accuracy

- Isolate Complexity (C&D cells)

- Platform approach

- Later customization

- Parts consolidation

long supply chains when does a long supply chain make sense
Long Supply Chain Maybe Okay

Supply Base already gone

Fasteners, PCB, EMT Fittings

Low Variability in demand within lead-time (+/- 20%)

Supports MTS Business Model

Value Add - machining

High Volume (Relative Term)

Part Savings

Savings/Lbs > 3X Freight/Lbs

Not based on transient regional differences in material costs

Not dependent on VAT treatment

Offsets Currency Risk

EGS Shortening it’s Supply Chain

SSI / EPT Strapsfrom China to US, price parity – ITO 300% better

MMR / Areamaster Lightingtop 60% buy complete, late stage customization 40% in Mexico

Long Supply ChainsWhen Does a Long Supply Chain Make Sense?
long supply chains 50m asian buyout spend responds slowly to demand
Long Supply Chains$50M Asian Buyout Spend Responds Slowly to Demand
  • Hampering EGS FY09 Inventory Performance
  • Supply Base long gone from N.America
  • Must take hard look at range of Product Offering
  • Potential solutions
    • FG Stocks in Asia
    • Rationalize Brand Overlap

Long Supply Chains“Sourcing Decision Tool” Changes Strategy – MMR, Jinan, GRE
  • Critical Inputs for a Total Landed Cost Picture
    • Planning = Inventory Impact and Long Lead Time and Demand Variability
    • Sourcing = Material Spend and Potential Pricing
    • Trade Compliance = Duty Issue and Customs Assists
    • Logistics = Freight Spend and Transit Time
    • Sales Dilemma = excess Inventory or Risk Missing Sales

  • Inventory YTD Autopsy:
  • FG replenishment by Forecast; not Pull
  • Monthly Production Plan did not reflect Inventory Reductions
  • Demand dropped mid-Nov, planning parameters revised mid-Dec

buyout inventory 5 1m reduction required for sola and ecm
Buyout Inventory$5.1M Reduction Required for Sola and ECM
  • Have pushed out or canceled $5.7Msince November
  • For Dedicated Suppliers, building FG stock to cut Lead-time to 45 Days
  • Working with Sola Suppliers to Stock Long Lead-time electronic components
  • Central planning is closely managing forecast for all buyouts
  • Safety Stocks and Lot sizes have been trimmed wherever possible

  • Sola Buyout inventory drops from $4.1M to $2.0M by Sept 09
  • Endpoint inventory Target driven by sharp decline in COGS
  • Achieving this Target will require either:
    • (a) Getting rid of these Rocks and managing NPD/Customer Specials, or
    • (b) Unacceptable 50% decline in Sola Buyout Fill Rates

  • Purpose: Software package used to calculate Reorder Points and Quantities based on variability of lead time and demand.
  • Allows optimization of Inventory Level for given Fill Rate Target
  • Installation: 8 weeks required to compile and scrub data, integrate with BPCS and establish tracking metrics.
  • Target Completion: 15 May

Rationalizing EGS Product Offering a Major Complexity Reduction Opportunity

EGS has to make hard decisions regarding it’s Branding Strategy

complexity reduction most significant opportunity is brand rationalization
Complexity ReductionMost Significant Opportunity is Brand Rationalization
  • EGS Team Formed – getting started
  • Reviewed Appleton, O-Z/Gedney McGill and Neer products to identify identical or functionally equivalent products
  • Sorted products into three main groups;
    • Identical products with different packaging for each brand
    • Identical products with different brand markings
    • Functionally similar products with different designs
  • Over 6,000 SKU’s reviewed
