Companies are dependent on supply chain partners for successful operation. Once you agree on delivery of the right product or service at the right price at the right time, how do you ensure the supplier will meet the results you need? When is a formal contract warranted to document your negotiation? What recourse do you have if your supply chain partner does not fulfill their end of the agreement? Protect your company and the supplier partnership, limit liability, and document critical terms. Develop a strategy for what goes in a contract after you have successfully negotiated with your supply chain partners. Learn key contract terms, the difference between different types of contracts, and gain a better understanding of what a well-written contract looks like.
Pull systems and Kanbans are tools and concepts that can be used across the whole value stream. Over the years, Kanban systems have been developed and adapted to support very specific needs. They can be found to manage a finished goods supermarket, to schedule batch process equipment, to manage and reorder purchased parts, to deliver material to an assembly line or to level production across an entire mixed model value stream. All these types of pull systems help to simplify decision making, improve cash flow and provide superior delivery performance. This workshop demystifies many versions of Kanban systems. Participants learn many practical details that make a difference in the effectiveness of the supply chain.Show similar events in:
