  24. (Total cost method) Daily cost of holding product =
  25. 3.)Inventory
  26. Procurement is concerned with
  27. Total Cost
  1. a -Nodes or "links" in the logistics supply chain
    Base stock (sometimes also referred to as cycle stock)
    Safety stock (possibly even strategic stock in addition to safety stock)
    -Input and Output Requirements
    Input = Demand (e.g., orders)
    Output = Level of performance


    May involve singe or multiple firms
  2. b purchasing and arranging inbound movement of materials, parts, and/or finished inventory from suppliers into manufacturing or assembly plants, warehouses or retail stores
    -Sourcing or Strategic Sourcing
    -Supply Management
    -Material Planning & Purchasing
  3. c -Strategy & Design
  4. d is the design and administration of systems to control movement and geographical positioning of raw materials, work-in-process, and finished inventories at the lowest total cost.
  5. e -Order Processing
    -Materials Handling

    Integrated through a network of facilities
    e.g., warehouses & distribution centers
  6. f -moved to the customer's point of consumption
    -Products are delivered at the right time.
    -Products are delivered to the desired location.
  7. g consists of a commitment to key customer expectations and requirements at a minimum cost
  8. h The performance cycle represents elements of work necessary to complete the logistics related to customer accommodation, manufacturing or procurement
  9. i Direct delivery is done through each stage of the ecelon process.
  10. j managing work-in-process inventory as it flows between stages of manufacturing. Master Production Schedule (MPS)
  11. k Order processing
    Inventory Management
    Warehousing/Materials Handling to support.... Procurement, Manufacturing, and Customer Accommodation
  12. l -Order-to-Cash
  13. m -1.)Availability - having inventory to consistently meet customer material or product requirements

    -2.)Operational Performance - the time required to deliver a customer's order
    Key metrics for this area involve delivery speed and consistency
    Flexibility - to handle unexpected customer demand/requests
    Malfunction and recovery time - logistical failures and corrections

    -3.)Service Reliability - quality attributes of logistics
    Key to quality is accurate measurement of availability and operational performance over time
  14. n Value of the shipment = $25,000
    Faster shipping is generally more expensive than slower shipping
    Carrier 1 (slower/standard) costs $250 to make the shipment
    Carrier 2 (faster/expedited) costs $20 more but delivers 1 day faster
    Product in transit is a form of inventory
    Holding costs for a shipment is 40% of value per year
    No other cost differences across remaining logistics functions

    Traditional cost you would choose carrier 1 beacause that is the lowest INDIVIDUAL cost. However Total cost method will consider more than that.
  15. o -(Dependent on other Logistics Areas
    -Insourced -vs- Outsourced
    -Services Provided
    -Reverse Logistics
  16. p Service and Cost Minimization

    -Firms must make appropriate tradeoffs between service and cost for each of their key customers
    -Why would the tradeoff potentially be different by customer?
  17. q -Cost -vs- Total Cost
    -Balance Speed & Cost
    -Service Quality
  18. r 1.)Responsiveness - Satisfy customer requirements in a timely manner.
    2.)Variance Reduction - The elimination of operations disruptions.
    3.)Inventory Reduction - Control asset commitment and turn velocity.
    4.)Shipment Consolidation - Reduce transportation costs through larger (and therefore fewer) shipments.
    5.)Quality - Continuous improvement towards zero defects.
    6.)Life Cycle Support - Cradle-to-cradle logistical support.
  19. s Focused on achieving the lowest possible cost for each individual function of logistics
    For example, transport the material the cheapest way possible
    Expected lowest cost based on decisions that were cheapest for individual functions
    Ignored the impact of cost decisions across logistics functions
  20. t Focused on achieving the lowest total cost across each function of logistics
    A cost decision in one function should consider impact to costs of all other logistics functions
    For example, transporting material the cheapest way is likely slower than other choices. This requires an increase in storage cost to hold the material longer
    Therefore, would it still be the lowest total cost to use the cheapest mode of transportation?
  21. u Supplier ->Industrial distribution/Consolidation warehouse ->Manufacturer->Wholesaler or distribution center ->Retailer -> Customer
