Seminar Topics:
a)    Visibility of products throughout the supply chain improves quality management and customer satisfaction. Real-time visibility by utilising mobile data capture enables organisations to track and trace where any product is in the supply chain.  Organisations who have a real picture of their business in real time can:

Know what is in stock                           Know where their stock is
Maximise staff effectiveness                    Improve quality management
Reduce administration costs                     Minimise customer returns
Reduce production and warehouse downtime        Retain their customers

b)    Despite perfect demand visibility along the supply chain, procurement of many line items still benefits from smart lot sizing and timing decisions. The seminar will address the following challenges in materials and supply chain management:

* How to more accurately forecast fluctuating demands
* How to minimise inventories while simultaneously providing adequate stock availability for excellent customer services and minimal production downtime

c)    First hand experience of how BAE Systems Marine achieved their business objectives by  integrating a mobile data capture solution with their ERP system, SAP.

d)    How Robert Bosch manage their international inventory across multiple warehouses to provide excellent service while reducing stock levels.
