Product Details

This is an AICPA Manufacturing Conference session rebroadcast

This webcast is a rebroadcast of two conference sessions presented by Ken Koenemann, Vice President of Technology and Supply Chain Practices at TBM Consulting Group.

This two-part webcast will begin with Part 1: Optimizing Inventory in the Omnichannel World.

Today's global economy and multi-channel buyer environments are challenging the order management and inventory management processes of most companies. The belief that one approach or methodology can be applied across the entire business is no longer true.

During this session you will learn how to identify the various channels or value streams you have within your business. There are most likely 4 to 6 channels that require different strategies for managing orders, inventory and pricing.

After a brief intermission, the webcast will continue with Part 2: Driving Global Supply Chain Efficiencies in today's Hyperconnected World.

With today's geopolitical and geo-economic challenges, supply chain agility and efficiencies are becoming more important to conducting successful business. Supply chain efficiency is no longer just about capturing the lowest cost per unit, it has expanded into broader terms around total landed costs, flexibility and speed.

In this webcast you will learn how to define efficiency and different levers to pull to drive supply chain efficiencies in the future.
