... compared in a consistent way. The final step is of the AHP is to calculate the numerical value for each alternative decision; which represents the relative ability of each decision to achieve decision objective. Fuzzy Logic In order to provide the basis for the SCCI model, the following steps are used: 1. Fuzzification: Establish a non-binary measurement system 2. Fuzzy Reasoning: Define an appropriate logic for establishing consequences from antecedents 3. Defuzzification: Provide a mechanism for interpreting the result (consequence) in terms of a scalar PROPOSED MODEL FOR DETERMINING SCCI Therefore, the higher the SCCI, the better and the lower the bullwhip effect in the supply chain. The inverse is also true; bullwhip effect is higher for supply chains with lower SCCI. 10. CONCLUSION REFERENCES Arshinder Kaur, Arun Kanda, and S.G.

Supply Chain Innovation Winner

...This year's Supply Chain Innovation award winner started out to optimize cramped warehouses. It wound up transforming its entire process for building orders and getting them to retailers. Sometimes the way to build a better mousetrap is not by tinkering with the old one but by tossing out altogether and starting afresh. That's essentially what Pepsi Beverages Company, the winner of this year's Supply Chain Innovation award, did with its new direct-to-store delivery model. Pepsi Beverages Company is itself somewhat of a new enterprise. On February 26, 2010, PepsiCo completed its mergers with The Pepsi Bottling Group and PepsiAmericas. PepsiCo's new operating unit, Pepsi Beverages Company, serves the United States, Canada and Mexico. It goes without saying that PBC moves a tremendous amount of product every day. In doing so, executives came to the painful conclusion that with ever growing sales and SKUs, the walls of the company's warehouses and distribution centers figuratively were bursting at the seams. Enter the Warehouse Infrastructure Initiative, which for all practical purposes was an attempt to re-engineer the old mousetrap; in this case, to make it bigger. When all was said and done, that effort was set aside in favor of the highly innovative - and successful - Direct-to-Store Delivery Transformation Initiative. Here are the benefits, according to Timothy Thornton, PBC vice president, supply chain logistics: The distribution strategy that ultimately...

Supply Chain Management of the Year Article Review

...Supply Chain Management of the Year Article Review Pamela N. Hardnett BUS 612: Advanced Project Procurement Instructor: Kevin Kuznia August 24, 2014 Supply Chain Management of the Year Article Review In reading the assigned article from this week’s readings, we learned about John MacLean and his awesome supply management skills. MacLean encouraged others to think big and think out of the box (Teague, 2009). Maclean's endeavors to increase the worth acquiring and production network put up to American, including income creation, speedier time for sale to the public, better-quality items and different measurements. He pushes others to take accountability for their actions. I am honored to be on his team. As my project sponsor, I know that he will be available upon request to assist me in obtaining the necessary support needed in order to make decisions, and to successfully create my project. Carrying on without an effective sponsor raises the probability of project failure and I as the project manager will be held accountable for that failing (Lynda Bourne, 2012).  As the project manager of American Airlines, I think that I would be a great leader when it comes to the upgrading of our technology. Every organizational endeavor is structured to ensure efficient, lean and effective supply chain (Benton, 2013). My main focus would be to come up with a strategic plan that would assist my team in implementing a better system to track the location of our planes. In making...

Strategies in Supply Chain Management for the Trading Agent Competition

...Strategies for Supply Chain Management for the Trading Agent In an effort to address the of increasingly sophisticated and advanced methods of supply chain management, a joint team of researchers from the e-Supply Chain Management Lab at Carnegie Mellon University, formed The Trading Agent Competition (TAC). This particular forum was designed to address the problem of trading agent competition within the global marketing structure. Within this writing, the problems inherent to trading agent competition will be addressed and certain formulas will determine the validity of such theorems. A definitive description of a supply chain can be described as “a process that transforms materials into products and delivers them to customers through specific activities” 1. An overall objective of supply chain management is to improve upon the timely delivery of goods to suppliers and customers alike, thus while keeping costs at a minimum. This includes all handling and storage costs involved within the supply chain management process. Key aspects of the stages involved are securing raw materials, manufacturing, storing, negotiating, the receipt of customer orders, and delivering the products, paired with using standards adopted from long withstanding relationships between major trading firms. 1 P.B.

... that brought them together. For instance, in the article we are in this together, when the managers of both companies Wendy’s International and Tyson Foods converged to come up with supply chain partnership the year 2003, the respective parties came with other misgivings. For partnerships to succeed, the partnership model is very crucial since it illuminates the reasons why each company’s decision for coming together. It gives the managers an opportunity to measure the conditions that could hamper or facilitate the corporation and provides a specification the kind of activities the managers should undertake and the standard required for the partnership to be reinforced. The model tested at Wendy’s together with other partnership efforts rapidly establishes the commitment and mutual and mutual understanding needed for success and provides a structure for determining the performance. Implementing partnerships a lot of coordination, risk sharing, and proper communication platform. They need good communication, working together and spreading of risks and their performance is measured by yielding better results than the firms attain without partnering. (Lambert & Knemeyer, 2004).In this century, supply chain management is becoming the main purpose of the senior management in trying to see that any structural or organizational change is incorporated into the supply chain.
