    Modern Procurement and Supply Management

     

    Introduction

    All business organizations engage in procurement from external vendors, suppliers, contractors or subcontractors. Procurement or purchasing and supply management is vital to the operations of any business firm, especially a manufacturer. But even firms engaged in service businesses need dependable sources of supply.

     

    Course Description

    This is a course on how the principles of modern procurement and supply management have been applied by forward-looking and innovative organizations. The course leads to an identification of a set of strategies and best practices that have been proven to work and show great promise of improving an organization’s quality, productivity, competitiveness, and profitability levels, provided that they are correctly and consistently appliedThe course describes these practices and recommends how they can be properly applied in the Philippine environment.

     

    Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this course, the participants will have been able to:

    1. Identify the strategic issues that are embodied in the procurement of goods and services from external entities
    2. Compare and contrast the traditional paradigms of purchasing or procurement vs. those of MPSM
    3. Identify the critical actions and key success factors needed to institute a change from the traditional purchasing paradigms to those of MPSM

     

    Agenda

    1. The impossibility of complete vertical integration
    2. The upstream supply chain
      • Tier 1
      • Tier 2
      • Tier 3
      • Managing the supply chain as a major strategy
    3. The mission of Purchasing and Supply Management
      • Procurement objectives
      • Procurement and supply management strategy
    4. Key issues in purchasing and supply management
      • Single source or dual sources vs. multiple sources
      • Arms-length adversarial relationship vs. collaborative partnership
      • Direct purchase vs. multi-tier supply
      • Non-interference vs. supplier development
      • Exclusively internal new product development vs. supplier collaboration and participation
      • Large suppliers vs. SMEs
    5. Traditional practices in purchasing and supply management
      • Purchasing or procurement is regarded as tactical or operational.
      • At least three competing suppliers per item; for big purchases, competitive bidding, with the lowest bidder winning
      • The relationship with suppliers is adversarial.
      • All internal information is confidential and cannot be shared with the supplier.
      • The relationship with the supplier is short-term.
      • If a supplier falters in quality or delivery, it is threatened with cancellation of the current order, or with being cut-off from future orders.
      • The purchasing department is concerned only with direct suppliers and wants these to be the manufacturers as much as possible.
      • Collaboration with suppliers is strictly prohibited because of the fear of collusion and dishonesty.
      • All new product development is done internally; no supplier is allowed to participate.
      • Suppliers should be large and with a long track record.
      • If the volume of a particular purchased item is large and expected to grow, the company should consider producing it internally.
    6. The practices of Quality Purchasing and Supply Management
      • The buying company must practice Lean Manufacturing or Just-in-Time Production
      • The primary mission of purchasing and supply management is to contribute to the firm’s competitiveness and profitability by enhancing the quality, total usage cost, delivery reliability, and service provided by the upstream supply chain members.
      • Conduct firm-wide spend analysis to identify the critical few (Class A and Class B) items being purchased, as well as the cost of the purchasing function.
      • Rationalize the supply base, reduce the number of suppliers per item, go for single source supply when feasible, and consolidate contracts.
      • Concurrently with reducing the supply base, organize the upstream supply chain into several layers or tiers shaped like a pyramid.
      • Establish long-term strategic partnerships with the best suppliers, with both sides endeavoring to nurture a relationship built on trust and mutual benefit.
      • Close communication is practiced between customer and supplier; even information previously considered sensitive (e.g., costs of production) are shared with one another.
      • Establish clear, specific, measurable, and time-bound standards for all suppliers, and give each of them regular (e.g., monthly) evaluation feedback on their performance.
      • For suppliers that falter in meeting some standards, initiate a Supplier Development program that provides technical assistance for process improvement, an equitable sharing of savings and other benefits, and a combination of pressure and incentives to motivate the suppliers to continuously improve their performance.
      • Suppliers that perform excellently, on the other hand, are recognized and honored, and prioritized for future orders, without being subjected to lowest-price bidding.
      • Enter into long-term supply contracts with high-performing, reliable suppliers (e.g., blanket P.O. or system P.O.) covering several years.
      • Have a reliable vendor manage inventories of high volume stock items that it supplies.
      • An alternative is Third-Party Logistics, whereby a professional logistics service provider is engaged by the supplier and the customer to undertake the functions of Inventory Planning and Control and of Warehousing.
      • Distributors and agents are regarded as valuable suppliers if they can provide service that will enhance product performance.
      • Treat suppliers as valuable members of the design and engineering teams for new product development.
      • Big enterprises engage in the development of SME suppliers for strategic benefit.
      • Organize partner suppliers into a “suppliers’ association” whose members practice mutual learning through benchmarking and sharing of best practices.
      • The company will not produce internally what can be produced better, cheaper, and faster by specialist suppliers; it will focus on its core competencies.

      • Exclusively internal new product development vs. supplier collaboration and participation
      • Large suppliers vs. SMEs
    5. Traditional practices in purchasing and supply management
      • Purchasing or procurement is regarded as tactical or operational.
      • At least three competing suppliers per item; for big purchases, competitive bidding, with the lowest bidder winning
      • The relationship with suppliers is adversarial.
      • All internal information is confidential and cannot be shared with the supplier.
      • The relationship with the supplier is short-term.
      • If a supplier falters in quality or delivery, it is threatened with cancellation of the current order, or with being cut-off from future orders.
      • The purchasing department is concerned only with direct suppliers and wants these to be the manufacturers as much as possible.
      • Collaboration with suppliers is strictly prohibited because of the fear of collusion and dishonesty.
      • All new product development is done internally; no supplier is allowed to participate.
      • Suppliers should be large and with a long track record.
      • If the volume of a particular purchased item is large and expected to grow, the company should consider producing it internally.
    6. The practices of Quality Purchasing and Supply Management
      • The buying company must practice Lean Manufacturing or Just-in-Time Production
      • The primary mission of purchasing and supply management is to contribute to the firm’s competitiveness and profitability by enhancing the quality, total usage cost, delivery reliability, and service provided by the upstream supply chain members.
      • Conduct firm-wide spend analysis to identify the critical few (Class A and Class B) items being purchased, as well as the cost of the purchasing function.
      • Rationalize the supply base, reduce the number of suppliers per item, go for single source supply when feasible, and consolidate contracts.
      • Concurrently with reducing the supply base, organize the upstream supply chain into several layers or tiers shaped like a pyramid.
      • Establish long-term strategic partnerships with the best suppliers, with both sides endeavoring to nurture a relationship built on trust and mutual benefit.
      • Close communication is practiced between customer and supplier; even information previously considered sensitive (e.g., costs of production) are shared with one another.
      • Establish clear, specific, measurable, and time-bound standards for all suppliers, and give each of them regular (e.g., monthly) evaluation feedback on their performance.
      • For suppliers that falter in meeting some standards, initiate a Supplier Development program that provides technical assistance for process improvement, an equitable sharing of savings and other benefits, and a combination of pressure and incentives to motivate the suppliers to continuously improve their performance.
      • Suppliers that perform excellently, on the other hand, are recognized and honored, and prioritized for future orders, without being subjected to lowest-price bidding.
      • Enter into long-term supply contracts with high-performing, reliable suppliers (e.g., blanket P.O. or system P.O.) covering several years.
      • Have a reliable vendor manage inventories of high volume stock items that it supplies.
      • An alternative is Third-Party Logistics, whereby a professional logistics service provider is engaged by the supplier and the customer to undertake the functions of Inventory Planning and Control and of Warehousing.
      • Distributors and agents are regarded as valuable suppliers if they can provide service that will enhance product performance.
      • Treat suppliers as valuable members of the design and engineering teams for new product development.
      • Big enterprises engage in the development of SME suppliers for strategic benefit.
      • Organize partner suppliers into a “suppliers’ association” whose members practice mutual learning through benchmarking and sharing of best practices.
      • The company will not produce internally what can be produced better, cheaper, and faster by specialist suppliers; it will focus on its core competencies.

      • Rationalize the supply base, reduce the number of suppliers per item, go for single source supply when feasible, and consolidate contracts.
      • Concurrently with reducing the supply base, organize the upstream supply chain into several layers or tiers shaped like a pyramid.
      • Establish long-term strategic partnerships with the best suppliers, with both sides endeavoring to nurture a relationship built on trust and mutual benefit.
      • Close communication is practiced between customer and supplier; even information previously considered sensitive (e.g., costs of production) are shared with one another.
      • Establish clear, specific, measurable, and time-bound standards for all suppliers, and give each of them regular (e.g., monthly) evaluation feedback on their performance.
      • For suppliers that falter in meeting some standards, initiate a Supplier Development program that provides technical assistance for process improvement, an equitable sharing of savings and other benefits, and a combination of pressure and incentives to motivate the suppliers to continuously improve their performance.
      • Suppliers that perform excellently, on the other hand, are recognized and honored, and prioritized for future orders, without being subjected to lowest-price bidding.
      • Enter into long-term supply contracts with high-performing, reliable suppliers (e.g., blanket P.O. or system P.O.) covering several years.
      • Have a reliable vendor manage inventories of high volume stock items that it supplies.
      • An alternative is Third-Party Logistics, whereby a professional logistics service provider is engaged by the supplier and the customer to undertake the functions of Inventory Planning and Control and of Warehousing.
      • Distributors and agents are regarded as valuable suppliers if they can provide service that will enhance product performance.
      • Treat suppliers as valuable members of the design and engineering teams for new product development.
      • Big enterprises engage in the development of SME suppliers for strategic benefit.
      • Organize partner suppliers into a “suppliers’ association” whose members practice mutual learning through benchmarking and sharing of best practices.
      • The company will not produce internally what can be produced better, cheaper, and faster by specialist suppliers; it will focus on its core competencies.

    Production and Operations Management

     

    Introduction

    All business firms exist to serve the needs and expectations of people or organizations that they have identified as customers. Satisfying customer requirements to a high degree, while charging a competitive price, provides value for money and leads to sales revenues. Maintaining such value for money over time results in customer loyalty and repeat patronage, which is the basis for business growth, market share, and profitability. Satisfying customer needs and expectations is achieved through the provision of products (for manufacturing businesses) and services (for service businesses). Producing these products or rendering these services with effectiveness (the right products/services customers desire) and efficiency (with the most productive use of scarce resources) is the primary objective of production and operations management.

    POM is at the very heart of achieving the organization’s primary mission. It must predictably transform inputs (such as materials and components, labor, supplies, machining, information, and the environment) in products/services that recipients (i.e., customers) find beneficial and for which they are therefore willing to pay. This is a complex undertaking requiring the coordinated functioning of the different but interacting and interdependent components of the production and operations process. This course discusses the basics of production and operations management.

     

    Learning Objectives

    At the end of this course, the participants would have been able to:

    1. Explain what production and operations management is and what it can contribute to the better management of business and not-for-profit organizations

    2. Understand and appreciate the importance of processes and the six elements that interact with one another to make them operational

    3. Describe and explain the key operational concepts, principles, and theories that have been found to work and have great potential in helping production and operations managers to make sound, rational decisions that satisfy customer needs, wants, and expectations in an efficient and environmentally sustainable way.

    4. Adopt a total-system view of an organization’s upstream and downstream supply chains and identify the key factors for their successful and sustainable integration and coordination

    5. Explain the triple bottom line philosophy that is becoming more accepted in POM

    Six Sigma Quality

     

    Introduction

    Customers’ loyal patronage is the lifeblood of all businesses. A firm must convince its customers that it offers superior value for money compared to what competitors offer. The components of value are Quality, Cost, and Delivery (QCD). Customers want consistently high quality, low or competitive costs, and reliable delivery or performance; trade-offs (or success in only two out of three) are not acceptable.

    The outputs that customers pay for (whether products or services or a combination of the two) are the result of processes, series of interrelated activities that predictably transform inputs into desirable or value-adding outputs. Ensuring that their processes are consistently producing high-value outputs (from the customers’ viewpoint) at the least amount of time and costs is the principal issue in achieving and maintaining competitiveness, productivity, and profitability of business enterprises.

    This course uses the principles and concepts of Six-Sigma to chart a path in this direction. The emphasis will be on practicality and on techniques that have been proven to work in business organizations, both manufacturing and service.

     

    Learning Outcomes

    At the end of this course, the participants will be able to:

    1. Explain that all work outputs are produced through processes with six interrelated elements, and that a failure in any causes mistakes, high costs, and delays
    2. Learn specific techniques for improving quality, productivity, and efficiency through the application of the Six Sigma approach
    3. Explain the basic Six Sigma concepts and improvement models

    Supply Chain Management

     

     

    Introduction

    No modern company can possibly produce all its inputs (such as raw materials, components, supplies, and spare parts) internally. It has a network of upstream suppliers (both direct and indirect) that are specialized in producing needed items and services which it then buys. After production of its products, the company then needs to distribute its products (or provide its services) to its target customers, making sure that the goods are available when and where the customers want to buy and in the quantities that they want to buy at a price that they are willing to pay (which will cover all distribution-related costs).

    Thus, a company faces the need for effective and efficient in-bound logistics (upstream supply) and out-bound logistics (downstream distribution), in addition to effective and efficient production operations at its own facilities. The combination of in-bound logistics, operations, and out-bound logistics (with the concomitant flows of information and funds) is called the supply chain and it is obviously a system with many interdependent and interacting parts; a failure in any one will disrupt operations. The management of this complex system to ensure that it can provide the ultimate customers with the products/services of the quality and quantity required, at the time and place they are required, at a competitive cost (and therefore price), and with the customer-desired after-sales service is called supply chain management. It is critical for achieving a superior competitive position (essential for market share and profitability) in the face of demanding customers and tough competition. Firms compete in their final consumer market not by themselves alone but with their entire supply chain behind them.

    This course deals with the fundamentals of supply chain management.

    At the end of this course, the participants would have been able to:

    1. Understand and appreciate the roles and importance of the different components of the supply chain and their interdependence and interaction
    2. Understand and appreciate the need to manage the supply chain as a total system, which should lead to behaviors and decisions that strengthen its cohesiveness and avoid those that weaken this
    3. Make strategic decisions that will facilitate the effective and efficient performance of their company’s supply chain
    4. Anticipate and address the risks that are inherent in every supply chain

All are expected to add value to a company’s supply chain.

It is intended for warehouse managers and supervisors, materials managers, plant managers whose plants have supporting warehouses, and managers of distribution centers and depots.
