Description

SCRt CIWG | Safety Stocks & Lean

Hosted by: To Be Advised


Lean principles are all about reducing waste in the system, and inventory is certainly a big one for many organisation. It is very common for us to see safety stocks at suppliers, raw materials, stock in the process, finished goods and at our customers.


If we can reduce or even eliminate safety/excessive stocks through the whole supply chain, the financial impacts can be significant. But there is a real reluctance for organisations to take a holistic approach, due to perceived risks.

In this workshop we will look at:

  • How do we identify the total cost of safety stock in the supply chain?
  • How can we overcome the fear to reduce stock?
  • How can we start the process?
  • What are some of the key tools?
  • What could be the benefits?
