Role of Stakeholder
This summary will be used to characterize who stakeholders are and his or her importance to an organization. One will lead with a discussion on identifying the role a stakeholder has within an organization. One will also discuss stakeholders and his or her management roles. Lastly one will discuss how stakeholders implement those quality management processes within Walmart and J. B. Hunt Transportation.
Stakeholder Role By definition a stakeholder is “one that has a stake in an enterprise” (Merriam-Webster, 2013, p. 1). Stakeholders are individuals or groups that have a direct primary or secondary contol over the actions of a company. Stakeholders are a fundamental part of the development of a company because of his or her role within the company. Stakeholders can have both internal and external roles, for example internal stakeholders are those individauls, such as the board of directors or consumers, employees, and suppliers who provide vital services for an organization (Classic, 2009). External stakeholders are most often any individual who fianaces a company’s operations, government organizations, and the media and which are never occupied with everyday management issues. Many managers, supervisore, and employess as oerform roles that aid the quality management process, for example CEO and upper- management are responsible for planning and creating quality management process. Managers give employees the ability to train and when needed retraining, he or she also give employees vital support and leadership that aid the quality management process (Foster, 2007). Managers also provide employee acknowledgment and methods that support employees who helps garuntee quality process are done correctly (Foster, 2007). Every individual from within an organization is…...

To maintain consistency and quality of its products, McDonald's shipped all the raw materials — lettuce, patties et al to a cold storage close to the main market.

Subhiksha Inventory management Subhiksha has a centralized purchasing system. This eliminates multiplicity of billings, which would occur if the stores were to make independent purchases. Subhiksha has 3 separate godowns for stocking Pharmacy products, unbranded groceries and branded FMCGs. It has a fleet of 10 tempos, which supplies its stores once a day. As the discount format requires holding costs to be at a minimum all the stores are connected in an intranet to facilitate inventory planning.

...A systems perspective on supply chain measurements Stefan Holmberg The Authors | Stefan Holmberg, Division of Logistics, Lund University, Sweden Abstract | Both practitioners and research scientists have noted a number of problems regarding measurement activities during the past decade. The problems reported suggest that measurement activities are fragmented both within and across organizations. Expands on a systems perspective on supply chain measurements and describes how problems can be communicated, understood and managed by developing methods and tools for describing interrelationships within supply chains. Empirical evidence from a case study of a Swedish home furnishing business supply chain provides data suggesting that firms within a supply chain cannot simply be categorized as either having adopted systems thinking or not. Rather, both structured models indicating a high degree of systems thinking, and problems showing fragmentation, are present. A performance model, which is used to reflect the systemic structure of an underlying supply chain and a potential integrator, is introduced and suggested as the focus of future research initiatives within supply chain measurements.

...ADVANTAGE TECHNOLOGY NETWORKS PRACTICE PROCESS BALANCE PERFORMANCE SUPPLY CHAIN SUPPLY CHAIN THE &THE VS. HYPE REALITY 46 SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT REVIEW · SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2001 www.scmr.com The conventional wisdom is that competition in the future will not be company vs. company but supply chain vs. supply chain. But the reality is that instances of head-to-head supply chain competition will be limited. The more likely scenario will find companies competing— and winning—based on the capabilities they can assemble across their supply networks. By James B. Rice, Jr. and Richard M. Hoppe A n increasingly vocal and popular sentiment holds that the nature of competition in the future will not be between companies but rather between supply chains. If this does, in fact, represent the future, how will these chains actually compete against each other? And what can practitioners do now in anticipation of this future? In contemplating the much-ballyhooed supply chain vs. supply chain (SC vs. SC) proposition, we first sought examples of this competition in action. Yet for as many examples of SC vs. SC competition that we found, there were at least as many places where the model didn’t fit. On the one hand, we saw vivid examples where one company or a series of companies had designed supply networks to act with singular focus against other unique companies or groups of companies—for example, Brax, Perdue Farms, and Tyson Foods. Yet......

...but Miliken has an 18 week lead time and that prevents it from timely resupplying the more popular designs at the retail stores. This would not do because by the time Miliken is able to resupply the more popular designs, two or more style seasons would have already gone by and the supplies manufactured would be out of season. The company would have also missed the two or three style seasons that have already gone by. The only way to resolve this issue is to reduce the lead time by 15 weeks to being only 3 weeks lead time. To the left is a chart of the flows of product, information, and financial settlements between Miliken, apparel shops design & manufacture apparel, department store chain headquarters & distribution centers, and the retail stores. As you can see, there is two way communication between each part of the supply chain that is next to one another but not up or down the chain, for example; the retails stores and the department headquarters communicate but the retail stores do not communicate with Miliken or the apparel shops design and manufacturing apparel centers. Customers make purchases at the retail stores and when the retail stores are out of stock, they communicate that information to the headquarters & distribution centers, which then communicate the information to the apparel shops design & manufacturing apparel centers, and then lastly, that gets communicated to Miliken so it can produce more of the popular items. Thus, the 18 week long lead time for......

...Introduction Inventory serves as a useful purpose in the supply chain. Many supply chain managers say firms can help decrease the need for inventory by carefully managing factors that cause inventory levels to increase. Inventory can be defined as the result of imbalance between supply and demand. The term inventory drivers comes from the consequences of certain supply or demand characteristics, such as: product desirability, responsiveness, information, collaboration, and visibility (St. John, 2008). The four common inventory drivers are: 1) demand/ capacity mismatches; smoothing inventories 2) demand/ process volume mismatches; cycle stocks 3) demand/supply uncertainty; safety stocks and 4) demand/supply chain lead time mismatches; anticipation inventories (Bozarth, 2011). Determining Inventory Levels Inventory decisions are normally determined by five key business drivers: consumer demand, lead time variability, pack mix, merchandising requirements, and service levels. However, with every decision there is always an area for error. Forecasting consumer demand involves factoring in lead time, lead time variability, and package size constraints. The best way to manage customer demand is to run a sales and operating plan across merchandise, supply chain, and store operations to tweak forecasts and reduce forecast errors. The key is to do a monthly review of forecasts for items with a stable demand, and for items with unstable demand and promoted categories they need a......

Current Year’s average aggregate value = $48,000,000/6 = $8,000,000 Next year’s average aggregate inventory value = ($48,000,000 × 1.25)/6 = $10,000,000 Increase in the average aggregate inventory value = ($10,000,000 – 8,000,000) = $2,000,000 b. Number of turns to support next year’s sales with no increase in inventory value = (1.25)(6) = 7.5 turns. Thus, the change in inventory turnover = new – old = 1.5 inventory turns, or 25% higher inventory turns. 2. Precision Enterprises.

...market (on a short term basis), with a lack of need on controlling the costs of inventory, one theory remains key to the airbus manufacturing process, that theory that states that Airbus was born due to the proximity of the EU countries and so the geographical constraints are very important. Meaning that airbus is a combination of different EU organization that each one manufactures its products in a way that optimizes there restraints and capabilities and all is dialed down for assembly, and the proximity and open market of the multiple EU countries involved in the production that takes out the need of the transportation issues and logistics. 2. Why your Beer Game performance cannot be considered as a component of your final grade in this seminar? The beer game performance is an example of how crucial communication is in the supply chain process. The game where each different station in the production process gives its estimates (that are mostly wrongful guesses) of what will be needed for production only increases the gap between forecasted and actual (bullwhip). The beer game is bound to make you wrong by fluctuating once or twice its demand level and remaining constant throughout the game, something that also cannot be real, and by doing so obliges you to stock some products in Lou of the expected fluctuation. In a supply chain that focuses strictly on information gathered by only one division of the team rather than a full transparency between all the different......

...In today’s competitive SCM market, it’s not so much about having the best company anymore, but more importantly who has the supply chain, and who can get the product out to meet standards of the customer? Supply chain managers are continuously faced with this major challenge from the top of their supply chain operations to the bottom. Effective supply chain management of an enterprise reduces costs, lead times, and inventories throughout the entire supply chain. Customers want the ‘perfect orders’ and expectations to reduce manufacturing costs put corporate supply chains under immense pressure. As a result, supply-chain management and infrastructure plays a significant role in organizational strategy and how a facility chooses to set up their operation. A. Analyze whether a Keiretsu network (Keiretsu: a Japanese term that describes suppliers who become part of a company coalition), a virtual company, a vertical integration, or a different supply chain strategy should be adopted. A virtual company strategy would not work for this type of operation because “vertical integration is counter to the benefits of specialization” (Heizer and Render, 2010). In this model of supply chain, the demands of more specialized products exist and there is more flexibility to waiver from centralized suppliers than Keiretsu or vertical integration offers. Much of This “fluidity” may allow for too much variability within and there is no sustainability as contracts can be short......
