5 WAYS TO OPTIMIZE MANUFACTURING
A strong supply chain in manufacturing reduces interruptions, which may cost delivery businesses substantial time and money, as well as degrade their brand.

Maintaining consistency is important in any form of business. However, the important question that remains to be answered here is how to achieve consistency when the driving factors seem to be out of the company’s direct reach.

“The future of manufacturing is a critical enabler of economies.”

– Kathryn Wengel

In this article, we'll highlight the five ways to create a strong supply chain that helps any business reduce the risk of disruption and, finally, cost. Furthermore, we will discuss the supply chain leader, Cisco Systems, and how it ranked first in the Gartner supply chain top 25 for 2021.

How Supply Chain in Manufacturing Is Different

A well-functioning organization requires an effective supply chain. However, supply chain management in manufacturing is even more vital.

Below are the three reasons why supply chain management is different and vital in manufacturing. 
  • Products are more complex than they have ever been
  • Brand owners no longer manufacture their own products
  • Manufacturing is becoming more technologically advanced

5 Ways to Build a Strong Supply Chain


Strengthen Your Relationships

Strong relationships require both parties to be transparent and to continually aim for mutual benefit. Manufacturers in supply chain management must recognize the significance of building strong associations with vendors and should act likewise.The primary benefit of a great, healthy vendor relationship is that it enables you to maximize the value of your business. The more familiar you are with your suppliers, and the more familiar they are with you, the more likely you will receive personalized service, preferred pricing, and exclusive terms.

Effective supplier connections assist your business in the following ways.
  • Delivery of high-quality materials on time
  • Production goes off without a hitch
  • Take advantage of incredible deals
  • Excellent service
  • Saving your business time and money

Expand Your Supply Chain

Maintain good working relationships with multiple vendors to ensure the efficient operation of your supply chain. This encourages healthy competition, which might lead to reduced prices and better service. A diversified supply chain enables you to look outside the confines of your organization while also fostering innovation and more creative approaches.

Diversification of your supply chain provides flexibility, allowing you to adapt to changing market trends and consumer expectations. By diversifying your regional supply base, you may be able to provide more competitive rates on a local level.

Maintain Accurate Data

Both you and your supplier will inevitably suffer losses if your numbers are incorrect. Make sure your estimates are based on correct data or numbers and that you've taken into account all possible demand scenarios before drawing them. Collaborate with suppliers in the formulation of projections using your strong supplier ties. Under-and over-delivery and over-stocking can be avoided, and the likelihood of higher freight charges for urgent orders can be decreased.

Organize Integrated Systems

To make informed decisions at all levels of your business, you need a system that collects, integrates, and analyzes data. Supply chain integration is the process of establishing coordination and expanding connectivity across the whole supply chain, from procurement to production planning to logistics.

Advanced technological solutions have made supply chains more efficient and simplified than ever before. Software automation in supply chain management also helps in decreasing the stress on employees, minimizing errors, and improving resource utilization by utilizing high-quality software.

Always Have a Plan B

The risks associated with your supply chain can be reduced significantly, if not eliminated. An effective disaster recovery strategy is a contingency plan that must be prepared keeping in mind all the worst possibilities. There are numerous approaches to mitigating supply chain interruption, including regionalization, segmentation, and supply chain diversity.

Cisco Systems Tops the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25

For the second consecutive year, Cisco Systems is ranked first in Gartner's supply chain top 25. In addition, Gartner reports that the IT company's agility and competency in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts prioritized critical infrastructure for hospitals and vaccine research. Cisco's sustainability standards are integrated into its supply chain business processes to ensure continual improvement and the generation of significant change necessary to manage ESG.

Cisco established two new targets for greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) reductions after reaching specific, ambitious targets one year ahead of schedule: A 30% reduction in supply chain GHG emissions, and by 2025, 80% of Cisco's component, manufacturing, and logistics suppliers will have a public GHG emissions reduction objective.

Final Words

A supply chain is a vital component of nearly all forms of business. If you are facing difficulty in effectively controlling your business's supply chain, consider the techniques suggested. The manufacturing supply chain process flow must be well-designed and well-executed to successfully complete the production cycle. Today's technology enables you to transform a complex supply chain into a simpler one that aids in risk anticipation and reduction. However, utilize this technology wisely and keep in mind that interpersonal relationships remain a critical component of supply chain success.

Factors Explaining Why American Manufacturing Is Growing

Article | July 11, 2022

Even though Silicon Valley has built its reputation on innovation, it is believed that it has lost its edge. Business entrepreneurs were encouraged to focus on gleaming venture capitalists, to sell bigger dreams to the most popular technology. The future of the American manufacturing industry is predicted to have more growth than the past two decades, and here are the reasons why: Excluding the Middleman: From ancient times, manufacturers sold through retailers who acted as middlemen in the distribution process, but with the upgradation of the industry, manufacturers can now directly connect to the consumers and the government. Rising Demand for US Made Products: The US population leans more towards products that are made in America. Hence, the manufacturers make extra efforts to produce high quality premium products for their customers. Customer Loyalty and Support: Customers love to connect with the brand and understand the brand’s struggle to manufacture and create excellent products. Engaging customers in the journey will help manufacturers gain insights and feedback, and improvise accordingly. People today are more keen towards seeing improvements sooner, and it has become much easier to hear from customers, iterate, fail, pivot, and improve quickly. Conscientious Capitalism’s Rise: When you take into account the carbon cost of transportation imports, there is another clear advantage to the growth of domestic production. Important financial advisors are also raising this alarm. For instance, the polypropylene required for the majority of PPE is manufactured in the U.S., transported to China, used to make masks, and then returned. Additionally, since at least 18% of air pollution is caused by ocean freight, domestic product manufacturing may benefit both the environment and consumer demand. Energy Costs: The cost of energy consumption in the United States is declining, which is crucial when competing with foreign companies. For the first time in modern history, domestic production has a strategic advantage because electricity is the second-highest cost after labor. Automation: The strategic advantage of cheap labour possessed by international competitors is eliminated by the growth of automation. Over the next ten years, robotic automation is expected to challenge enterprises that have relied on cheap labour as a competitive advantage, paving the way for a revival of American manufacturing.

Smart Manufacturing with IoT & Industry 4.0

Article | July 8, 2022

Industry 4.0 is a new phase of the Industrial Revolution that emphasizes interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data. Industry 4.0 and IIoT combine physical production with smart digital technology to create a holistic and better connected ecosystem for manufacturing and supply chain management. Industry 4.0 is about revolutionizing the way your entire business operates and grows by investing in new technology and tools to improve manufacturing efficiency. In most cases, businesses are deploying iIoT devices and machinery linked by communication technologies to help industries collect, monitor, analyze, and deliver valuable insights. The specifics of how this technology is used vary from company to company, but the goal is always the same: to improve operational efficiency through analytics, automation, and connectivity. For example, The manufacturing sector is already undergoing a revolution. According to an IDC report, the sector spent $178 billion on the iIoT in 2016. Also, as per MarketWatch, iIoT investment in the manufacturing sector will grow at a CAGR of 29.68% until 2020. Amazon paid $775 million for the robotics company Kiva in 2012. It crosses our mind: why such a big investment? It made more sense for them to use robots to locate products and deliver them to their workers than for their workers to find the products themselves. Smart Manufacturing Use Cases: Industry 4.0 technology is being implemented by a North American tool manufacturer in order to improve efficiencies and productivity in its global manufacturing operations. Caterpillar recently collaborated with industrial analytics firm Uptake to develop technologies that will assist their customers in monitoring the health of their equipment. They used a variety of IoT and augmented reality technologies to provide machine operators with an instant view of vitals such as fuel levels and when the air filter needs to be replaced. When an air filter needs to be replaced, the technology sends detailed instructions to the machine operator. Siemens' factory in Amberg, Germany, personifies the company's passion for technological innovation. The plant was created as part of a collaboration with the German government to create a series of fully automated smart factories. The plant itself manufactures parts for BMW and is said to be approximately 75% automated. The purpose of going over these use cases is to help you imagine and consider how smart manufacturing could be integrated into your own organization.
