The CEO of the startup manufacturing company you are working with from Competency 1 Assessment Part 1 asked you to attend the executive steering committee meeting. The committee is looking to implement a new SCM system. The company does not currently have an SCM system and does believe there is a need for one. The lack of having one causes the company to have occasional operational issues, which results in a loss of revenue.
The executive steering committee has asked you to research the different SCM system software packages available and create a comparison chart of the different packages. They would also like you to provide a summary that will recommend what SCM system the organization should use.
Research at least four SCM system software packages.
Design a comparison chart for at least four SCM packages you researched that includes the following:
Product
Deployment
Demand planning
Import/export management
Inventory management
Shipping management
Supplier management
Transportation management
Warehouse management
Cost
Write a 2-page summary that will help the executives determine which SCM system and strategy to use that will ensure success. Be sure to include the following in your summary:
The value of SCM and how it differs from CRM and ERP
A high-level overview of the supply chain
Why each step in SCM is important to the organization?
How an SCM system will help the company succeed and correct the operational issues
What are the tasks the IT department must do in setting up an SCM and for ongoing maintenance of an SCM?
Why the selected SCM system is the best for their organization
