Beaten paths are out.
Operational and managerial deficits. Market conditions have changed. Beaten paths and old magic formulas are out. What has remained in many enterprises are operational and managerial deficits such as incompatible supply chain or logistics structures, non-matching process environments, cross-corporate inefficiency, a lot of interfaces and rising logistics costs (cf. Info Box).
Business deficits. Our own experiences, which are fully endorsed by scientific studies, show that the share of logistics cost (measured against the total expenses of an average industrial business) has grown to 17 24 percent, with rising tendency! With logistics costs of this magnitude, the pain threshold is reached in many businesses.
Typical problems and issues. Many enterprises in central Europe have either failed to realize or underestimated the growing significance of logistics over the last years. This is reflected in many problems and issues we have encountered over the years, for instance:
unneccesary capital tie-up
excessive throughput times
no clear view of available inventories and resources
growing number of networked partners difficult to control and monitor
inadequate support by PPC in the network-based planning von quantities, capacities and times
difficult integration of partners as a result of different IT systems, IT levels and data volumes
unnecessary rerouting of information and decision-making channels as a result of decentralized added value activities
disproportionate growth in logistics costs caused by new cost drivers and cost traps
