PRINTED CIRCUIT: Manufacturers, distributors: Transform or be left behind

By Jan Pabellon, Director for Product Management, Oracle NetSuite
 
THERE is a paradigm shift happening in the world of manufacturing and wholesale distribution.

 In the old paradigm, there existed a linear flow of goods from design, to manufacturing, to distribution. In this old paradigm, paper pushing was the norm. Paper-based purchase orders were created for the raw materials. 

Job orders were created to manufacture or assemble goods. Materials and item costs were manually tracked as they moved down the production line, and then the cost of items were transferred to finished inventory. Inventory transfer documents were then created to move items to company owned warehouses for distribution to retailers, who in turn made the final delivery and sale to customers. That was then tracked via invoice.

 This process was adequate for the control and monitoring requirements of a traditional supply chain—one that moved methodically, sometimes slowly, based on predictable demand. This old way of doing things was simple and predictable, but unfortunately highly vulnerable to errors, delays, and inefficiencies.

 The advent of globalization and the creation of geographically distributed supply chain networks, plus the rise of computers and networking technologies, led to IT helping to manage the increasingly sophisticated supply chains that came about at the time. These new supply chains were the early combination of the physical and the digital, interfacing the traditional with the new in the sequential process of designing, producing and delivering or exporting to the world at large. 

 Fast forward to today, where we are seeing the rise of highly demanding, tech-savvy consumers, who have become accustomed to access to multiple goods and offers coming from all corners of the world, on-demand via dozens of different sales channels—offline or online. This consumer is seeking new experiences and services, and has become highly discerning, and highly picky with his/her choice of products. This has created a highly competitive market environment, and has brought about the demand for more agile and efficient hyper-extended supply chain networks.

 It’s been said that the global economy has transitioned from a business-to-business to customer-to-business paradigm. The adage, “the customer is always right” has made the customer the center of an organization’s operational focus, and clients can express their expectations from a number of different platforms—store outlet, online site, social media, or mobile ordering system.

CLOUD COMPUTING AND DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION. To meet this heightened and complex demand situation, companies can no longer rely on the old ways of doing things and need to radically rethink how they operate. By leveraging the latest benefits that modern, digital technologies can bring, they can radically transform the way they do business—enabling what many analysts are calling digital transformation (DX). Simply put, DX means using digital technologies and competencies to radically transform how businesses operate and make money, making them more responsive to the market environment and able to survive an increasingly demanding environment, driven by highly demanding consumers, disruptive technologies, and radical industry change.

 A key benefit that DX can bring, especially to supply chain management, is providing companies with the means to stay connected with their partners and customers 24/7. Individual departments involved in the various processes in the supply chain - movement and storage of raw materials, production, inventory, delivery – can interconnect immediately and have complete visibility of the entire business in real-time, which can only be made possible by cloud technology.

 In place of disconnected functions, DX allows each operating department to focus on how the full supply chain can better achieve business objectives. DX encourages intelligent companies to shift their focus away from managing and optimizing distinct (or discrete) functions in traditional supply chains, such as procurement and manufacturing departments. By bridging disconnects between disparate data systems, businesses can realign the supply chain to respond to increasingly aggressive customer demand.

 A wealth of valuable insights can be drawn across the connected supply chain. Data from diverse ecosystems across the production line can be aggregated to provide companies with fresh ideas that can  proactively influence pricing, distribution strategy and sales & promotional campaigns. DX also introduces more advanced digital tools such as Big Data analytics to improve operations.

 A cloud-driven supply chain allows meaningful and timely visibility of every transaction in the business anywhere in the world. Complete visibility of every operational data point can help management make decisive actions, seize emerging opportunities and facilitate business process efficiency.

 For example, by leveraging a cloud-based business system to manage end-to-end sourcing, production, distribution and fulfillment processes, a company may see an improvement in the speed and precision of supply chain processes while gaining real-time transparency into inventory, production and distribution. A cloud-based business system can function as the manufacturer’s data warehouse, a single unified store of information gleaned from its entire supply chain all across its operations, anywhere in the world, accessible at any time.

 Achieving digital transformation will not be easy. DX will be a major hurdle for most companies that still use disparate disconnected legacy systems which take significant time to find, much less share, the right information. It will be compounded by continued reliance on outdated transaction documentation and communication procedure that harks back to the pre-digital linear supply chains.

 DEMAND PLANNING SIMPLIFIED. Oracle NetSuite uses advanced inventory management and demand planning techniques to help companies make the right decisions and increase on-time delivery metrics. Inventory in each store location can be set up with unique parameters to deliver unprecedented control over the supply chain.

 Considering supply chain management as a whole, the suite helps in executing plans, which is probably the most important phase and can also be the most complex in a global economy. Since manufacturing can take place on any continent and across multiple time zones, a simple but effective way to communicate with your distributors, partners, suppliers and contract manufacturers is needed to make sure they know what you want, and you know what they intend on delivering.

 Being built in the cloud and accessible from anywhere on any device with a browser and internet access is vital to modern businesses that manage supply chains of any size and complexity. Oracle NetSuite’s collaboration platform begins with automatic and instantaneous communication options via email, continues through the ability to provide visibility to your supply chain partners to view or update order or product information, and can mature to integrated system communication through web service. Such agility allows many customers to build their own collaboration system on top of the Oracle NetSuite platform to fit their specific requirements.

 More changes are expected in the coming years as the paradigm shift in the manufacturing and wholesale distribution industry continues. But as long as companies are equipped with the necessary tools and right technologies to stay competitive in the market, adjusting to these changes will never be a problem.
