Supply Chain Distribution

The disruptions resulting from the pandemic, global conflict and more have put great strain on the economic world. These challenges have been particularly centred on supply chain distributions. Without the proper insight and planning on the supply chain of an organisation it is certain to face continued disruptions. Consider the following four items when seeking to optimise supply chain distribution.

Study past supply chain trends

With clear and accurate data on the success and failures of past supply chains it is possible to predict future disruptions. It is impossible to precisely predict future events but knowing the possibilities allows organisations to prepare for any outcome. The key to accurately preparing for future disruptions is to have a clear picture of past events. Why, when and how did past disruptions occur and what were the results. Products like Oracle Netsuite can provide a clear picture.

Find the weak link

When investigating past errors it is important to recognise distribution issues that occur frequently. These weak links should be the primary focus in improving supply chain problems. Frequent issues can reveal deeper problems with the supplier or within the organisation’s chain of supply. Perhaps supplies need to be ordered further in advance, less, or more frequently. Find the weak links and find out where improvement is necessary in the supply chain.

Find trusted suppliers

Find trusted suppliers and communicate effectively the supply chain needs and challenges faced. With a clear understanding of the supply needs of a business they can more clearly communicate their needs. The sooner these needs are communicated to a supplier the faster a resolution can be found to supply chain disruptions. Economic Resource Planning (ERP) technologies can offer this information quickly and accurately, in order to share the needs of an organisation.

The future is unpredictable

If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that anything can happen. Businesses should be able to adapt quickly to supply chain distribution challenges. As with the other points, having accurate and up-to-date information on current supply chain requirements can inform future decisions. If supply conditions change it is important to know what alternatives are available and what supply is currently available.

It is impossible to avoid supply chain disruptions. The best possible solution to these disruptions is to have a recognised ERP solution.
