Build a new supply chain for a new business or an existing business.

 

In this project you must identify a new business opportunity. The manufacture of some new type of computer device is one possibility. You must than develop a new supply chain plan for your product.   Your choice must have significant supply chain issues as a result a manufacturing opportunity is preferred over a service one. Restaurants and import/export businesses are also good choices. If you want to use an existing company you must demonstrate that the new business opportunity is not part of the existing business and you must develop a new supply chain for the new product that does not include the existing plan.

You will need to incorporate the supply chain activities into a business plan and show how they provide a strategic advantage to the firm while supporting the firm’s mission. You will need the following information included your project. Note: This is not meant to be inclusive listing but rather a guide to show you the right direction.

  • A company profile. The firm title, type(s) of products offered, the industry segment where your firm is competing.
  • Demand Management: Who are your customers? What is your expected demand? How do you justify this projected demand? What is the price of your product? How do you justify this price?
  • Facilities and location: What sort of facilities will you have? Where are they located? How is the facility supportive of the product and its demand?
  • Inventory Management: What types of inventory will you have? How will you handle all types of inventory? How does you production system impact your inventory control?
  • Supply Management: Who are your suppliers? Who are your buyers? What is your positioning relative to the end user? Who are your distributors? Why did you choose these suppliers/buyers? How do you control the supply chain as a whole?
  • Logistics: How are your raw materials, work in process inventories and finished goods moved to their point of demand?
  • What is your communication system? Are you going to need special IT systems? Why or why not. What other communication systems do you need beyond those in your supply chain?

Your analysis should be as detailed as possible. Look at similar types of firms for benchmark information. The more analysis you do the easier it will be to develop a detailed supply chain plan. The more detail you have the easier it will be to describe issues in detail and explain how it will be implemented.
