buffer overrun  the lack of a buffer causes the wholesaler downstream in the chain to experience more frequent stock shortages. Speeding up one process in a synchronized system can throw everything out of balance. Costs cut unilaterally in one area will invariably lead to increased expense somewhere else. Activities in supply chains are all linked together, and one cannot move one link in a chain without disturbing all the rest. Finding a Perfect Balance In 1992 Robert S. Kaplan and David Norton introduced the Read More...

buffer overrun  acting as a management buffer between you and the client. That's a nice thought but it doesn't work that way in the real world because generally the people acting as a management buffer don't understand the software or the client's needs or the business processes—even when the business processes are standard and normal in the industry. So communicating with them and training the management people, trying to figure out what the client meant by what this management person is saying, those things take an Read More...

buffer overrun  should minimize the contingency buffer the service providers build into their pricing. Clearly defining your required service levels is an obvious step, but often poorly executed. The requirements should be presented in a clear, succinct fashion and the service providers should respond in a similar fashion. The best way to ensure this is to present your requirements in a tabular form and provide a small number of standard response choices. A three option choice (e.g., Fully Meet, Partially Meet, Can't Read More...

Conversely, with CTP, the question becomes Given the present and future consumption of parts and components, how much time do we need in order to cover anticipated consumption in the near future? .

buffer overrun  safety stocks are a buffer against demand variability and uncertainty, raising safety stocks on items that remain “fairly stable” is completely counter productive. The conventional wisdom is that items that are fairly stable need less safety stock, not more. An alternative “quick win” would be an “Inventory Assessment” which in less than 30 days would allow a company to tune its safety stocks and inventory mix, picking up extra margin on underserved items and extra cash on overstocked items.
