Supply Chain Management
Due to competition, companies want to have production systems and processes that respond quickly and effectively to customer orders with the minimum possible cost. This requires both flexibility and efficiency, which are usually contradictory. Activities enhancing flexibility increase costs. At this point, balancing the need for flexibility and efficiency becomes key issue for companies. Determining target customers and understanding expectations would be the primary areas of focus for balancing flexibility and efficiency.
While trying to meet all customer expectations, companies try to keep operations sustainable and profitable. Companies also measure their operational efficiency, improve their capabilities, and reduce non-value-added operations in order to compete with others. Since other companies go through similar processes as well, it is crucial to continuously make these improvements.
