With the attention of enterprises to supply chain management, more and more enterprises are optimizing supply chain management in different ways, in order to build the core competitiveness of enterprises. So in the supply chain management of such an important enterprise, what kind of requirements do managers need to fulfill in order to meet the flexible operation of the supply chain and achieve the ultimate goal of the enterprise? In this issue, we will set foot in the topic of specific responsibilities of enterprise supply chain management to see which demands of enterprise supply chain management they need to meet.
In this case, we might as well use an online picture to understand the major links of supply chain management. A complete supply chain includes suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and consumers. In short, the functions of enterprise supply chain management are mainly supply, management, service and operation. The four core points aim to provide guarantee and service for enterprise production and operation with the lowest cost and the best service.
How important is supply chain management? Let’s make a simple analogy: if any link or node in the supply chain goes wrong, it will affect other links of the whole supply chain, and then have a negative impact on the value-added of all enterprises in the supply chain, and weaken the market competitiveness.
Some experts said that the responsibilities of supply chain management include planning, purchasing, manufacturing, distribution and return. In this way, it’s a little boring. Let’s take the most popular digital supply chain as an example to briefly describe the specific responsibilities of enterprise supply chain management.
In order to realize the flexible operation of the supply chain and make quick response to customers, it is necessary to build an end-to-end digital supply chain. This supply chain covers all links from design, planning, manufacturing, logistics and operation and maintenance, and the responsibility of the manager is responsible for the data in the five links. Take SAP as an example, how to use SAP’s intelligent production technology to launch customer-centric products more quickly and at a lower cost is the most important responsibility.
Design, through continuous innovation, shortens the time to market of products to meet the needs of customers; plan, transform the supply chain into demand network, so as to make business plans based on demand; manufacture, optimize manufacturing process, improve flexibility and responsiveness; delivery, improve the speed, efficiency and sustainability of logistics and order fulfillment process; operation, in the world of increasingly digital degree Boundary, redefining asset management.
SAP helps customers solve a series of challenges, such as the continuous compression of production cycle, the increasing variables in the design process, the changing customer demand at any time, and the increasingly short delivery cycle expected by customers, by creating a “digital image” of the end-to-end supply chain for customers. Help enterprises to realize the visual effect of supply chain management, so as to build a comprehensive and interconnected supply chain and realize the digital transformation of the whole enterprise. Similarly, SAP products cover the entire product life cycle and can provide enterprises with the required innovation speed, operational efficiency and service efficiency to help them meet customer expectations.
From this point of view, the specific responsibilities of enterprise supply chain management are very complex. It is not only necessary to set up a customer-centered business orientation before redesign and planning, but also more important to realize the whole process visual monitoring and regulation in manufacturing, delivery and operation. In this way, we can meet the continuous innovation and development of enterprise supply chain management and win the present and future.
