Assessing the Maturity of your Supply Chain (part 1: Supply Chain Mapping)

At Derby
Event type: Workshop

Price: FREE

Think of the following scenario: your company is in discussions with a new customer about a contract to supply one of your new products. The customer is really keen and wants to place a very big order “right here, right now”, but you find yourself hesitant to commit and a number of questions spring to mind: Have I got enough stock? Have I got a wide pool of suppliers for the parts? Have they got the capacity? What are their lead times?

Understanding firms’ supply chains has become a key issue for corporations. Firms neither exist nor compete in isolation. Their fates are tied up with those of their supply chain partners. This raises an important question: Do you really know your company’s supply chain and do you understand its mechanics?

This is a two phased workshop. The goal of the first event is to introduce the key supply chain mapping techniques, the available tools to perform the supply chain mapping and how to apply those tools. The second phase of the workshop introduces the Supply Chain Readiness Level Tool. The tool will help you to assess the maturity of your supply chain.
