Driving Costs Out of the Supply Chain: Inbound Logistics


One of the most neglected areas of the manufacturing and retail supply chain is the inbound logistics segment. Following best practices and creating a collaborative allows companies to save money and streamline operations.

iron foundry  Working with suppliers to iron out some of these process flaws is the first step in gaining control over inbound shipments. Retailers have tried changing the freight payment terms from pre-paid to collect, but this may harm the overall supplier relationship. Instead, working in a collaborative mode with the supplier, to gain control over inbound shipments is the way to go. If this not done, the cost savings achieved by gaining control over inbound shipments would be offset somewhere else on the supplier Read More

Considering quote-to-order (Q2O) e-commerce vendors, their next frontier is verticalization and much of their functionality is likely to be subsumed by ERP, CRM and/or PLM vendors. However Q2O vendors may extend their staying power by harnessing business intelligence (BI) and predictive analytics to discern, for example, which product variants/options are the most profitable, what sells (and will sell) best in Read More

How the Mining Industry Benefits from ERP Systems

This ongoing work allows for maximizing safety while ensuring the lowest cost of excavation possible as the dig expands. Too sharp an angle increases risk of collapse, whereas too shallow an angle cuts into the available area for excavation. At a working mine, consumables and spare machinery parts are inventoried.

The High Costs of Non-compliance for Manufacturers


What manufacturers must realize is that through efforts to comply with regulatory standards, they can make their manufacturing operations more competitive. Indeed, compliance is transforming the companies that have taken the time to re-architect the many processes used for managing suppliers, channel partners, resellers, and customers.

“Act Vertical” vs. “Go Extinct” Retailers - Part 1


In over a decade of covering the enterprise application space, I’ve repeatedly lauded and advised vertical focus (i.e., someone’s proven expertise in some particular industry and market segment), but not that much vertical integration per se.
