    Introduction
    Inventory refers to the stock of materials, supplies, spare parts, and other inputs that are necessary to support operations. These items are normally carried on stock (i.e., available on hand whenever needed). Inventory Planning and Control is a branch of materials management that ensures that users will have the inputs with the appropriate quality in the right quantity at the right place at the time when they are needed. The other two branches are Procurement and Warehouse Management.

    Any shortage of an input at the time of need is disruptive. Production or service operations will stop, and customers’ expectations will not be served. On the other hand, stocking on inventory consumes working capital and can be very expensive in terms of tied-up capital, storage costs, insurance, security, etc. There is a need to strike a balance that will optimize stock availability at the least possible cost.

    This course will deal with various techniques to achieve such a balance. It will highlight the potential application of modern technological approaches to achieve that balance.

    Learning Outcomes
    At the end of this course, the participants would have learned :

    1. The ABC Classification of materials

    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 applied. The 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
      1. Tier 1
      2. Tier 2
      3. Tier 3
      4. Managing the supply chain as a major strategy
    • The mission of Purchasing and Supply Management
      1. Procurement objectives
      2. Procurement and supply management strategy
    1. Key issues in purchasing and supply management
      1. Single source or dual sources vs. multiple sources
      2. Arms-length adversarial relationship vs. collaborative partnership
      3. Direct purchase vs. multi-tier supply
      4. Non-interference vs. supplier development
      5. Exclusively internal new product development vs. supplier collaboration and participation
      6. Large suppliers vs. SMEs
    2. Traditional practices in purchasing and supply management
      1. Purchasing or procurement is regarded as tactical or operational.
      2. At least three competing suppliers per item; for big purchases, competitive bidding, with the lowest bidder winning
      3. The relationship with suppliers is adversarial.
      4. All internal information is confidential and cannot be shared with the supplier.
      5. The relationship with the supplier is short-term.
      6. 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.
      7. The purchasing department is concerned only with direct suppliers and wants these to be the manufacturers as much as possible.
      8. Collaboration with suppliers is strictly prohibited because of the fear of collusion and dishonesty.
      9. All new product development is done internally; no supplier is allowed to participate.
      10. Suppliers should be large and with a long track record.
      11. If the volume of a particular purchased item is large and expected to grow, the company should consider producing it internally.
    3. The practices of Quality Purchasing and Supply Management
      1. The buying company must practice Lean Manufacturing or Just-in-Time Production
      2. 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.
      3. 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.
      4. Rationalize the supply base, reduce the number of suppliers per item, go for single source supply when feasible, and consolidate contracts.
      5. Concurrently with reducing the supply base, organize the upstream supply chain into several layers or tiers shaped like a pyramid.
      6. Establish long-term strategic partnerships with the best suppliers, with both sides endeavoring to nurture a relationship built on trust and mutual benefit.
      7. Close communication is practiced between customer and supplier; even information previously considered sensitive (e.g., costs of production) are shared with one another.
      8. 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.
      9. 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.
      10. Suppliers that perform excellently, on the other hand, are recognized and honored, and prioritized for future orders, without being subjected to lowest-price bidding.
      11. Enter into long-term supply contracts with high-performing, reliable suppliers (e.g., blanket P.O. or system P.O.) covering several years.
      12. Have a reliable vendor manage inventories of high volume stock items that it supplies.
      13. 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.
      14. Distributors and agents are regarded as valuable suppliers if they can provide service that will enhance product performance.
      15. Treat suppliers as valuable members of the design and engineering teams for new product development.
      16. Big enterprises engage in the development of SME suppliers for strategic benefit.
      17. Organize partner suppliers into a “suppliers’ association” whose members practice mutual learning through benchmarking and sharing of best practices.
      18. The company will not produce internally what can be produced better, cheaper, and faster by specialist suppliers; it will focus on its core competencies.

    Introduction
    Translating the organizational strategies crafted by the senior-level management into consistently supportive short-term and medium-term performance targets and standards at each level and organizational unit is easier said than done. But this is essential to ensure that strategies are successfully implemented and the desired results obtained. It is also an objective means of evaluating the performance of accountable managers and other personnel.

    Traditionally, only financial indicators (sales, gross profit margin, liquidity, return on funds employed, etc.) were used as measures of performance against targets. But using historical financial results is like driving by looking only at the rear-view mirror. The financial figures tell us what happened, but not what is likely to happen in the future.

    A better methodology known as the Balanced Scorecard sets targets and tracks results using four interrelated perspectives:

    ·        Financial
    ·        Customer
    ·        Internal business process
    ·        Learning and growth

    This course introduces the methodology of the Balanced Scorecard so that the participants can move forward to implementing it in their organization.

    Introduction

      Strategy is the plan of action that prescribes resource allocation and other activities for dealing with the environment and helping the organization attain its goals. Strategic management is the set of decisions and actions used to formulate and implement strategies that will provide a competitively superior fit between the organization and its environment so as to achieve organizational goals.

    The characteristics of a strategic decision are:

    • Is broad in scope
    • Has far-reaching consequences
    • Is crucial to future survival and growth
    • Usually entails a substantial commitment of organizational resources
    • Is difficult to reverse

        Because of these characteristics, strategic decisions cannot be left to chance or “gut feel.” The consequences can be severe. Strategic management has to start with a data-based assessment of the external environmental trends to identify the opportunities and threats that are emerging and will have impact on the firm and its industry. Then there has to be a factual appraisal of the firm’s capabilities and limitations, or in other words, its strengths and weaknesses. These assessments will lead to an identification of strategic options, which need to be evaluated. After the optimal strategy mix has been selected, plans must be made for the successful implementation of such strategies.

    This is an overview course on the basic process of how to do strategic planning, whether the organization is in manufacturing, service, or not-for-profit.

     

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

    1. Scan the external business environment to identify potential threats and opportunities that may impact on the organization
    2. Appraise the internal strengths and weaknesses of the organization
    3. Based on a synthesis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats, identify key strategies for gaining sustainable competitive advantage
    4. Evaluate these strategies to select those that are feasible and have a high probability of success
    5. Translate these objectives into measures, targets, projects, and programs

    Who Should be Involved in the Process?
    To be effective, strategic planning has to be done from a total systems perspective, i.e., it involves all the key decision-makers in all operating and support units and departments. The CEO and all department heads must participate from beginning to end. It is a collaborative exercise where everyone sees the same information and all ideas are welcome. The reason is that an enterprise is a system composed of different units doing different work but which are all interrelated, i.e., each one affects the others. At the same time, the enterprise as a whole has to interact with the bigger environmental system that impacts on it.

    Introduction

          Traditionally, a warehouse had been regarded as a passive storage facility for inventories of raw materials, supplies, spare parts, or finished goods. Today, however, new roles are being assigned to warehouses, such as rearranging delivered goods into customer-specific product packages. Some are even performing certain functions that would normally be associated with manufacturing plants, such as final assembly, finishing, and repacking. All are expected to add value to a company’s supply chain.

    Course Description

                This is a course on managing warehouses in order to maximize their productivity and contribution to operating effectiveness and efficiency, particularly in the area of logistics. The course leads to an identification of a set of strategies and best practices that have been proven to work in the area of warehouse management. It is intended for warehouse managers and supervisors, materials managers, plant managers whose plants have supporting warehouses, and managers of distribution centers and depots.

               The principles and best practices described in this course take into consideration the current environment of the COVID-19 pandemic and the appropriate precautions and countermeasures are incorporated in the discussion.
