Executive Summary
Disaster management deals with avoiding risks. It involves preparing, supporting, and rebuilding society when natural or man-made disasters occur. Disaster management is a continuous process by which all individuals, groups, and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoid or ameliorate its impact. A supply chain, or supply network is a coordinated system of organizations, people, activities, information and resources involved in moving a product or service in physical or virtual manner from supplier to customer. Customers in this case are people facing the crisis. They formed the focus of the entire supply chain development. Over the past few years, the natural disasters floods, hurricanes etc have highlighted the low levels of disaster preparedness and inability of the hospitals and relief organizations to respond effectively. The quick response of relief organizations in the early stages of disaster can lower its impacts afterwards, avoiding severe loss of human lives and physical assets. This necessitates forming Supply Chain Strategy as a major component of Disaster Management Plan (DMP). Only a quick response and operationally effective supply chain can successfully put a Disaster Management Plan in action. The paper proposes a decision process for establishing an effective Supply Chain which…...

The Important of Supply Chain Management

...The important of supply chain management In the traditional view, the supply chain includes manufacturers, wholesaler’s retailers. For example, the manufacturer could sell directly to an individual for household usage, sell to a retailer for sale to the individual or sell to wholesalers for sale to the retailer, who then sells to the individual. Thus, supply chains consist of all the institutions and all the marketing activities such as storage, financing, purchasing and transportation that are spread over time and geographical space throughout the marketing process. According to Tom McGuffog Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a maximising added value and reducing total cost across the entire trading process through focusing on speed and certainty of response to the market. Due to globalization and ICT, supply chain management has become a tool for companies to compete effectively either at a local level or at a global scale. Supply chain management has become a necessity especially for manufacturing industry when it comes to deliver products at a competitive cost and at a higher quality than their competitors. The supply chain management process flows consists of 3 main flows that are the product flow, the information flow and the finance flow. The product flow usually involves movement of products from a supplier to a customer, and also the back end process such as any customer returns or service needs. The information flow involves the flow of information on orders and......

...denominator; an efficient supply chain in place which coordinates its independent parts so that they work together as a cohesive unit to produce the desired product for a profit. Altius Directory (2006-2013), “The ultimate purpose of supply chain management is to have a steady flow of inputs into the production unit, reduce the problem of excess inventories and reduce the cost of production errors (Supply Chain Logistics Management, Current Trends section). However, prior to implementing a successful supply chain, it is necessary to determine which strategy is best for your particular industry. A. Recommend with sufficient support, one of the following strategies: a Keiretsu network, a virtual company, a vertical integration, or a different supply chain strategy A Keiretsu network is a Japanese strategy where a group of members in the chain work together to ensure the success of all of its parts. This strategy relies on collaboration from its members to make a long term commitment to its members. The suppliers and manufacturers form a type of partnership where they work together to gain advantages and a competitive edge in the market. The underlying agreement is that the suppliers are willing to form a longterm relationship with each other. The keiretsu network is integrated horizontally and vertically. They are organized around their own banks and trading companies. In some instances, they are capable of controlling nearly every step of the economic chain in a variety of......

Supply Chain Management

...Logistics and Supply Chain Management Webster’s Dictionary defines Logistics as, “The aspect of military science dealing with the procurement, maintenance, and transportation of military material, facilities, and personnel; the handling of the details of an operation.” The importance of the concept of logistics can be easily seen in a military setting. Getting weapons, soldiers, and the like from point A to point B efficiently is of the upmost importance. In a battle scenario not doing so can cost lives. In a business setting goods must travel a clear efficient line from point A to point B. Certainly lives are not at stake as in the military, but for the business what is at stake are sales and revenue. Logistics combines an organization’s order management, inventory, transportation, warehousing, materials handling, and packaging. It is the process that creates value by timing and positioning inventory (Young, 2012). The impact of logistics can be seen when comparing the responses to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina by the Federal Government and private businesses. "Most skills and competencies needed to excel in logistics and supply chain management are the same skills and competencies needed to excel at disaster relief operations," said Matt Waller, associate professor of marketing and logistics at the University of Arkansas. Wal-Mart, the world's largest corporation, beat the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Red Cross to areas devastated by......

Disaster Management in Value Chain

...d. Key Stakeholders Analysis 
Disaster affected people is a composite category. It includes different groups of people with varied economic and social background. However, the poor and extreme poor people are most affected due to their fragile economic condition, presence in risky locations and no potential for self recovery. They try to cope with the situation through multiple strategies. Firstly, austerity – mange situation with resources available (e.g. eat less, distress selling and desertation etc. ); secondly, forfeiture – make sacrifices to ensure survival (e.g. accept low wage for labour, accept bondage for advance payment of wage, send children to work for income, sell assets, leave home to seek job and income) and thirdly, requital – try accessing additional resources (e.g. seek loans, seek gift in kind, seek relief). Generally, disaster affected people do not perceive that they have any entitlement. They depend on immediate relief for the emergency period through NGOs, and GO. They are more dependent on the ‘safety net’ programmes of government as most vulnerable groups. CBOs – a community based formal set up, it is civil society non-profits that operate within a single local community. They are essentially a subset of the wider group of nonprofits. Like other nonprofits they are often run on a voluntary basis. It has ability to respond in emergency promptly due to its presence within the affected society. However, their capacities and resources are very limited....

Internal Supply Chain Analysis

...ran its operations such as warehousing and logistics separately. Hence, in 1992, Nike made up its mind to reorganizing its European internal supply chain management and logistics (Ashford 1997). Because the entirely synchronized of materials flow and customer demands for the finished goods, that produces is the idyllic implementation for an internal supply chain management (Waage 2008). If the company do not achieve this ideal, it might lead to uncoordinated forecasts and decisions that produce inadvertent accumulation of inventories, excessive lead times, delays in production and product being left unsold finally. In this report consisting of four parts, a number of internal supply chain issues will be examined. In the first part, three items of concern will be analysed and illustrated based on the case study of Nike Europe as following. a) Analysis of the supply chain structures by showing the physical flow of goods, an information management and the organisational structures, b) Supply chain performance and c) The business context. In the second part, it will identify Nike’s main issues and problems. Then, it will address the generation and evaluation of alternative solutions for Nike. Lastly, this report will provide the recommended solution and justification for those issues. 1: Situation Analysis A) Supply Chain structures Nike has to understand the needs of local customers and how they can be served.

Supply Chain Management

...A. A supply chain strategy appears in many different forms and varieties; picking the right strategy is the hard part. When deciding on a strategy, the goal is to pick the correct one that will benefit your specific organization and area. There are six different strategy associated with supply chain management: Many supplier, few suppliers, vertical integration, a combination of the two referred to as a joint venture, Keiretsu, and a virtual company (Hiezer). The first couple of the strategies have a company rely heavily on external suppliers for their goods and service. Not necessarily working in conjunction with the organization business strategy, but aggressively compete with other suppliers to gain essentially the right to provide the product on the companies demand. The goal of both these strategies isn’t to foster a long term partnering relationship with the buyer’s organization. The strategy of vertical integration takes on two forms also; a company can either purchase a supplier or work in combination and join resources becoming a joint venture. Vertical integration can be forward taking on more of the distribution action or backwards by produce what was in the past purchased. They can benefit from organization talents by reducing cost, increase quality, and timely deliveries. It being hard to everything well and the large financial commitment are some of the challenges of a vertical integration strategy, for some organization these challenges may force them......

Risks in global supply chain Risk * Exposure to chance of injury or loss * Hazard or dangerous chance * Chance of loss * Degree of probability of such a loss Global supply chains can increase efficiency, but they can also increase risk. For example the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, the floods in Thailand and the ash clouds caused by the Icelandic volcano—have demonstrated how far the consequences of such risks can extend. The Japanese earthquake, for example, severely affected global electronics production and led to extended business disruptions for the automotive industry. These are some of the risks that can affect the global supply chain: * Supply Risks. Impacts elements of inbound supply, implying that a supply chain is unable to meet the demand in terms of quantity and quality of parts and finished goods. The outcome is labeled as a supply disruption. * Demand Risks. Impacts elements...

Supply Chain Management

...SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT DEFINING SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT Supply chain management (SCM) is the combination of art and science that goes into improving the way your company finds the raw components it needs to make a product or service and deliver it to customers. The following are five basic components of SCM. 1. Plan—This is the strategic portion of SCM. Companies need a strategy for managing all the resources that go toward meeting customer demand for their product or service. 2. Source— Companies must choose suppliers to deliver the goods and services they need to create their product. Therefore, supply chain managers must develop a set of pricing, delivery and payment processes with suppliers and create metrics for monitoring and improving the relationships. 3. Make—This is the manufacturing step. Supply chain managers schedule the activities necessary for production, testing, packaging and preparation for delivery. This is the most metric-intensive portion of the supply chain where companies are able to measure quality levels, production output and worker productivity. 4. Deliver—This is the part that many SCM insiders refer to as logistics, where companies coordinate the receipt of orders from customers, develop a network of warehouses, pick carriers to get products to customers and set up an invoicing system to receive payments. 5. Return—This can be a problematic part of the supply chain for many companies. Supply chain planners have to create a responsive......
