Your supply chain runs on infrastructure, including buildings, equipment and technology. The decisions you make regarding these assets define how well and cost effectively your company operates. Many of these decisions are small, such as whether to replace a forklift with a new machine, install energy efficient lighting or upgrade to the latest software version. However, some of these decisions are large, such as whether to build a new plant or distribution center, purchase a new software application or re-structure the entire supply chain.
Capital Is Precious. Every part of your company competes for the limited amounts available. If supply chain investments drain your available capital, then you can’t invest in new product development, market expansion or countless other initiatives that make your company more competitive.
Bad infrastructure investments can hinder your customer service and increase operating costs. No amount of continuous improvement or process re-engineering can make up for having the wrong buildings, the wrong equipment and the wrong technology. Instead of operations that hum, your team will struggle to overcome those infrastructure mistakes.
