Guide and Best Practices

Supply chain management is the process by which companies ensure that their supply chain processes are cost-effective and productive. A supply chain consists of a set of activities required to convert raw materials into a product that can meet the needs of the customers.

How to create a supply chain management strategy

  • Decide on the operations strategy; for example, whether to manufacture a product/ component or buy it from a supplier.
  • Map out the network of manufacturing facilities/ warehouses, decide the level of production and identify the flows of transportation between sites.
  • Together with your supply chain management team, you can create a flowchart to outline the entire supply chain process flow to identify areas for improvement.
  • Embed the diagram created in your intranet or other internal websites using the Creately Viewer so everyone can easily access it.
  • Organize the acquisition of raw material from suppliers. You can maintain an org chart of suppliers listing their contact numbers and other details for quick reference.
  • Schedule activities for producing, testing, packing and releasing products. Use a Gantt chart to help you track the progression of each task.
  • Based on customer inquiries, select distribution strategies and ways of transportation. Make sure products are delivered on time in the right quantity.
  • Carry out quality checks on returned products and on the management of the inventory of returned products.
