  15. 6 keys for successful SCM • Recent studies of supply chains in Australia identified six key principles of successful SCM (AFFA et al. 2002): • focus on customers and consumers; • the chain creates and shares value with all its members; • making sure the product fits the customers’ specifications; • effective logistics and distribution; • an information and communication strategy that includes all chain members • effective relationships that give leverage and shared ownership.

  16. Benefits of Supply Chain Planning • Competitive advantages due to a greater quality of service, shorter throughput times and cost savings. • Lasting increase in customer satisfaction due to increased delivery reliability and increased ability to respond. • Reduced costs due to minimization of warehouse stocks and more efficient resource planning. • Increased efficiency due to assisted decision-making (planning algorithms, simulations) and alert functions.

  17. Benefits of Supply Chain Controlling • Reduced costs as problems in the supply chain are recognized and the appropriate measures set in motion early on. • Lasting increase in customer satisfaction due to increased transparency and ability to react. • Increased efficiency due to the optimal coordination of all supply chain processes. • Competitive advantage due to the systematic recording and controlling of the complex relationships in the supply chain network.
