5 Supply Chain Myths - a Presentation

This presentation exposes the 5 Myths that prevent supply chain professionals from optimising their supply chains and ultimately improving business outcomes.
It explores the idea that these myths endure as a result of ‘The Supply Chain’ often being thought of as an executional cost centre, rather than a strategic opportunity.
It concludes that to achieve superior supply chain performance for your organisation you need to realise how to get there. And busting some myths, many of which are based on outdated business practices, is a pretty good place to start.

GAINS Research Group Conference 2015

GAINS Australia
GAINS inventory management software
Each year GAINSystems hosts a GAINS Resource Group (GRG) conference in Chicago, Illinois.  

One of the strengths of the GAINS inventory management system is the level of investment and development that is put into the tool each and every year; this presents GAINS users with continuous opportunities to further optimise their supply chain planning capabilities but also means it can be difficult to keep pace with everything that is available.

The GRG is a forum for GAINS customers to not just learn more about the GAINS suite via education workshops, but also influence the future development of GAINS and shape future functionality. 

If you use and GAINS and would like to attend, please visit the GAINS Australia website to find out more.  

The hidden value in Warehouse Planning & Design

Warehouse Layout and Design
The warehouse is often a significant cost to a business, but it can also be a real cost and customer service differentiator. In some businesses, owning and running warehouses is the business.

In many businesses, warehouses represent disproportionally high labour cost centres and, after manufacturing centres, high capital cost centres as a well. Understandably, they attract a lot of attention from cost conscious owners and boards. They also attract a lot of attention from customer facing interests. Warehouse managers deal with many competing interests and can run complex operations at the same time.

Significant opportunities therefore exist to improve your warehouse design to gain a competitive advantage.

Whether a re-design, expansion or greenfield design, GRA’s warehouse design management approach is to firstly understand exactly what is driving the need, and what the business sees as its critical outcomes.
