I present you my poster for 3rd ICSC to be held in athens on 7-8 of November

Abstract 

Main objectives of the research were first to describe every aspect of the procedures and secondly build function flowcharts that will give us clear results. We chose to use the qualitative method in order to analyze the situation of the company’s warehouse. In order to see how the warehouse actually works, a questionnaire was created and handed out to warehouse employees who were also interviewed. Consequently, we analyzed their answers and we created charts to see, in numbers, the current situation of the warehouse. We also created forms with descriptions for each one. . The results that you find in the flowcharts are many, but the main focus is the average implementation time. The theoretical background of the poster was based on information gathered from the Internet, books and magazines. With this research, the mechanics of how a warehouse works are explored and the average implementation time for every one of the procedures is determined. The importance of the research lies with the fact that, if you know how long each procedure takes to be completed, you can set such objectives as to lower the implementation time and set performance indicators for each process.

Whirlpool Corporation Evolution of a supply chain

Posted by on Nov 4, 2015 in logistics info | 0 comments

My next case study it is about the reorganization of whirlpool supply chain management. This case study is a fine example that show how logistics can really save money.

Abstract

Whirlpool Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of major home appliances, with annual sales over $19 billion, more than 80,000 employees and more than 60 manufacturing and technology research centers globally. Consumers around the world enjoy Whirlpool’s innovative products marketed under Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air, Amana, Brastemp, Bauknecht and other major brand names. With this varied inventory, plus a large direct sales force in more than 170 countries and an unpredictable sales cycle, effective supply chain management is critical for continued growth. Whirlpool has not always considered logistics a competitive advantage. However, since naming Penske its lead logistics supplier, Whirlpool experienced cost savings, increased customer satisfaction and found a partner to help integrate the recent acquisition of Maytag.
