Green SCM T Rawling

Tracey Rawling Church, director of Brand & Reputation at KYOCERA Document Solutions UK Ltd, talks about greening the supply chain.

As organisations become more sophisticated in their approach to sustainability, their focus expands from direct product impacts during the use phase, to indirect impacts throughout the supply chain. For KYOCERA, this posed some challenges, due to the way our sales channel is structured. We can be confident about our direct product impacts, as our parent company has an established and robust method for product lifecycle analysis and sustainable manufacturing, as well as a mature sustainable procurement policy that covers the suppliers of raw material.

Supply chain management has always been important.

However, its relative importance is on the rise, particularly as senior executives are becoming more focused on supporting a return to growth.

Trends and realities in the global economy are thrusting supply chain management to the forefront of business strategy. Executives are realizing that supply chain characteristics and capabilities ultimately define how a business can and should operate. As this new state of affairs takes hold, supply chain managers must both embrace and act upon an evolved and elevated role in strategy formation, leadership and value creation.

US Manufacturing

There is extreme interest in the potential for a revitalization of the US manufacturing sector, an interest coming to a crescendo of sorts this week at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where a major two-day conference on the Future of US Manufacturing was held. The sell-out event included a powerful list of speakers, including US Commerce Secretary John Bryson and a number of crporate executives, and featured excellent MIT research on the topic.

The graphic below was presented by MIT's Olivier de Weck, who has been leading a significant research project on US manufacturing and its impact on the overall economy - including the interesting question of whether the US could be successful as an "innovation economy" only, where very little in manufactured here.

Battery

Earlier today I participated in a roundtable discussion at the U.S. Department of Commerce on possible threats to the supply chains of critical technology materials. The Department of Commerce and the White House National Science and Technology Council co-sponsored the meeting responding in part to recent concerns about rare earth metals supply. 

The purpose of the meeting, as expressed by the Department of Commerce, was to identify future “rare earth problems” that might be a threat to U.S. industry. In preparing for the meeting, I had opportunity to talk to several NAATBatt members about their views of the critical materials supply chain issues.  Thanks to all who responded to my inquires.  Based on those responses I made a short presentation this morning, which summarized, in unscientific fashion, what seems to be a consensus view in the industry.

2012 Study

Although organizations must connect suppliers and customers around the globe, managing worldwide supply chains can cause cost increases and operational challenges, according to the Aberdeen Group's latest research sponsored by Syncada from Visa. The research, "2012 Best Practices for Closing the Loop on Multi-national Transportation Procure to Pay", identifies best-in-class behaviors that enable the top 20% of performers to reduce invoice cost, yet process and pay faster than competitors.

"Aberdeen recently surveyed 191 Chief Supply Chain Officers and found that more than 85% of companies have shipments crossing country borders. Transportation procure-to-pay solutions must support multilingual, multicurrency freight, as well as facilitate banking interactions across broad global geographies," shared Bob Heaney, Senior Research Analyst, Supply Chain Management, Aberdeen Group.

Sustainable Supply Chain

In the business world, fiscal imperatives often prevail over values—even the values of social responsibility and ethical behavior—as corporations strive to mitigate costs and reduce uncertainty. Nowhere is that drive for certainty and cost containment more compelling than in the corporate supply chain.

The global marketplace demands that supply chains be nimble and diffuse. Their broad distribution has elevated their significance beyond the functionality of manufacturing and transport, and they are transformative in the way they remake a corporation and the effect they have on local economies. An efficient supply chain is responsive to changing priorities by keeping costs in line, schedules on time and, more importantly, giving companies the room to scale for growth.
