How To Implement A Cost-driven Supply Planning Process
Why is it crucial to implement a cost-driven supply planning process?
Implementing a cost-driven supply planning process is crucial for optimizing margins and staying competitive in today's business world. While many companies focus on optimizing profitability and controlling working capital during supply chain design, they often neglect to directly optimize the cost-to-serve within the supply planning processes. However, planning decisions can have a significant impact on the cost-to-deliver, and a cost-driven supply planning process can help reduce costs by activating specific levers to meet demand.
Considering the cost-to-deliver is particularly important for evaluating complex decisions, such as defining capacities and production batches. By shifting to resource planning optimization using actual costs, companies can reduce the total cost-to-serve, prioritize global cost efficiency, and establish cost-based KPIs across all operations. Ultimately, a cost-driven supply planning process can lead to increased profitability, improved supply chain performance, and better decision-making.
