Logistics vs Supply Chain Management
Council of Logistics Management  “Logistics is the process of planning, implementing and controlling the efficient, cost-effective flow and storage of raw materials, in-process inventory, finished goods and related information from the point of origin to point of consumption for the purpose of conforming to customer requirements.” Handfield and Nichols  SCM is the integration of all activities associated with the flow and transformation of goods from raw materials through to end user, as well as information flows, through improved supply chain relationships, to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage.

The Logistics/SCM Mission

Getting the right goods or services to the right place, at the right time, and in the desired condition at the lowest cost and highest return on investment. Product / Service Utility

Possession Utility - the value or usefulness that comes from a customer being able to take possession of a product Form Utility - in a form that can be used by the customer and is of value to the customer Place Utility - available where they are needed by customers Time Utility - available when they are needed by customers Dickson Chiu 2006 SCM-6

Logistic in Marketing Marketing Process is successfully completed only when


Arrangements are made to supply the goods through selected distribution channels. 2 Products are produced and priced to satisfy the identified needs of the customers. 3 Goods are physically supplied to the buyers at the price and time selected.
Dickson Chiu 2006 SCM-19

4 An awareness is created among the buyers about the availability of the goods through advertisement 5 Other than satisfying the customer’s needs, the marketing process must be profitable to the seller

Relationship of Logistics to Production

Coordinates through scheduling and strategy
 

make-to-order make-to-stock Affects total response time for customers Shares activities such as inventory planning Production lot quantities affect inventory levels and transportation efficiency Production response affects transportation costs and customer service Production and warehouse location are interrelated

An integral part of the supply chain
 

Costs are in tradeoff

Logistics/SCM in Diverse Areas
   

Manufacturing - most common Service - emerging opportunities Environment - causing restrictions Non-profits / Government - little explored Military - long history

Note the global evolvement into a service-oriented economy!

Increasing Significance of Logistics

Costs are high
  

About 10.5% of GDP domestically About 12% of GDP internationally A range of 4 to 30% of sales for individual firms, avg. about 10% A high as 70-80% of sales if purchasing and production are included Desire for quick response Desire for mass customization Generate revenue Improve profit Local vs. long distance supply Globalization of trade Law of comparative economic advantage applies
Dickson Chiu 2006 SCM-30

Customers are more demanding of the supply chain
 

An integral part of company strategy
 

Logistical lines are lengthening
 

Logistics is a key to trade and an increased standard of living

Logistics adds value

Contemporary IT Applications in Logistics – Focus of this Course

Tremendous technological advances in past decades Logistics management relies on analysis over massive information from heterogeneous sources Disparate business functions in service-oriented economy Internet and mobile technologies has further improved logistical effectiveness and efficiency
 

Enabled logisticians and management to make timely, informed, and accurate decisions but create new dimensions of complexity

IT people work closely with logistician and management
 

Understand complex requirements Choose the right technology and design appropriateSCM-31 IT Dickson Chiu 2006

Some Useful Contemporary IT in Logistics
  

eXtended Markup Language (XML) Service-oriented architecture Process integration and interaction management

 

Exceptions, alerts, and relationship management in logistics Information integration Facilitating decision support

 

Mobile technologies Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

=> The key is to achieve information and process integration for efficient and effective decision support.

Logistical sub-systems

Physical supply or management of flow of raw materials , spare parts , consumable stores and machinery and tools from suppliers Physical distribution or mgt of finished goods from the factory to the customers Logistical controls for managing the logistics system; these help in the efficient co-ordination of physical
Dickson Chiu 2006 SCM-33

The aim of an ideal logistic system is to ensure flow of supply to the customer
    

In the right quantity At the required location At the required time In a usable condition At the lowest total cost

Dickson Chiu 2006



The logistic process plans, implements, controls the flow and storage of goods, services, and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption to satisfy customer requirements Logistics addresses the time utility & place utility out of the four economic utilities Logistics becomes more important and complex because of new requirements of the serviceoriented economy, disparate business functions, and the impact of various contemporary IT Logistics involves the interaction with multiple departments within a company as well as now also across business partner organizations and customers Application of contemporary IT, especially information and process integration for efficient and effective decision support, is a critical Dickson Chiu 2006 SCM-35
