...When considering technical improvements that could be made by Warner Brothers to improve its supply chain, it is immediately apparent that the downstream segment needs enhancements to enable Warner Brothers to provide digital entertainment to customers in a timelier manner. It almost seems as if the development of digital media and demand by consumers took Warner Brothers by surprise and it had to scramble to work out solutions, with the help of Hewlett-Packard (HP), to find ways to enhance its ability to produce digital content that consumers could view on a variety of devices. As discussed by Rainer & Turban (2009), Warner Brothers initially answered the demand to view new movies digitally by filming in both digital and traditional methods. This enabled the knowledgeable consumer to view a movie on his or her iPad, smart phone, laptop, or Internet-enabled television (p. 243). Improvement is needed in the area of digitizing the thousands of films in the archives. People want access to movies, television shows, and music, and want to watch them on their digital devices (Digitally Possessed, May 2012). Warner Brothers and HP accomplished the digitizing of new material, and if they now concentrate on finding a way to convert every movie Warner Brothers ever made to a digital format in a timely manner, they would be successful in satisfying the desires of digital customers. This would lead to increased profits by charging a nominal fee for downloading, or......

When discussing the supply chain of perfumes and colognes production, it is important to discuss both their "brick and mortar" facilities and their organizational web sites. Both the "brick and mortar" facilities and the web sites play a vital role in the success of modern day fragrances industry, so it is important to discuss both. First, the "brick and mortar" environment supply chain.  Describing the supply chain of a traditional "brick and mortar" perfume industry is very similar to explaining the supply chain of a typical business-to-consumer organization. The suppliers provide the materials to create the samples for each fragrance and cologne to be created at different laboratories. The laboratories have the main responsibility of manufacturing the fragrance substances, the formulation of fragrance compounds, the mixing of fragrance substances into fragrance compounds, the formulation of fragranced end-products. They are also responsible for Industrial and professional end-use of washing and cleaning products as well as end-use of polishes and wax blends. All of this needs to be done in order for the fragrances to be safe for the consumer and also for the environment. “The use is considered safe. If the same target is exposed to one substance through...

This theory is based on the fact that high demand from one customer will be offset by low demand from another and likewise. As well, this may impact the average inventory because the demand variability may cause a decrease in safety stock (Piramanayagam, 2009). This report will provide a general overview of risk pooling which will include several types of risk pooling, three critical points of risk pooling, as well as examples where risk pooling is critical during supply chain decision making. Piramanayagam (2009) suggests that the concept behind risk pooling is to redesign the supply chain through the production process or product in order to reduce the demand uncertainty or facilitate a company’s needs when dealing with demand uncertainty and there are several types of risk pooling that allows a company to accomplish this: lead-time pooling, capacity pooling, product pooling, and location pooling. Lead-time pooling is when lead-time is reduced by introducing a distribution center...

High division and standardization of tasks suppliers have to hold connection with several people, who can see only one small segment of the total picture. Our interviewees think that this makes their connection a bit clumsy. Suzuki builds much less on written rules or agreements.

More than 75% of McDonald's restaurants worldwide are owned and operated by independent local men and women.

In most markets, McDonald's offers salads and vegetarian items, wraps and other localized fare. This local deviation from the standard menu is a characteristic for which the chain is particularly known, and one which is employed either to abide by regional food taboos (such as the religious prohibition of beef consumption in India) or to make available foods with which the regional market is more familiar (such as the sale of McRice in Indonesia).

...In today’s competitive SCM market, it’s not so much about having the best company anymore, but more importantly who has the supply chain, and who can get the product out to meet standards of the customer? Supply chain managers are continuously faced with this major challenge from the top of their supply chain operations to the bottom. Effective supply chain management of an enterprise reduces costs, lead times, and inventories throughout the entire supply chain. Customers want the ‘perfect orders’ and expectations to reduce manufacturing costs put corporate supply chains under immense pressure. As a result, supply-chain management and infrastructure plays a significant role in organizational strategy and how a facility chooses to set up their operation. A. Analyze whether a Keiretsu network (Keiretsu: a Japanese term that describes suppliers who become part of a company coalition), a virtual company, a vertical integration, or a different supply chain strategy should be adopted. A virtual company strategy would not work for this type of operation because “vertical integration is counter to the benefits of specialization” (Heizer and Render, 2010). In this model of supply chain, the demands of more specialized products exist and there is more flexibility to waiver from centralized suppliers than Keiretsu or vertical integration offers. Much of This “fluidity” may allow for too much variability within and there is no sustainability as contracts can be short...
