ISCOM 374 Week 2 Demand Management Scenario
 

Your Learning Team represents a newly formed logistics department at a plastic manufacturing company. The company is currently underperforming with on-time deliveries. The Hangzhou, China location is consistently under 93%. The company goal is to be at or above 96% on-time deliveries.

The company president has challenged the Logistics Team to improve the on-time deliveries from 93% on average to 96% on average at the Hangzhou, China location.

Prepare a 700-word paper explaining how using demand forecasting methods can improve on-time deliveries and which to consider for the Hangzhou, China demand plan. Include the following:

ISCOM 374 Week 4 The Transportation Bid Challenge
 

Scenario:

Hello Logistics Team!  This is the company president here in our Hangzhou, China location. First, I want to personally thank the team for doing such a remarkable job with the Forecasting and Inventory improvements. The Company is now exceeding the 96% on-time delivery goal in Asia and the inventory costs have been optimized. Second, today new opportunities have emerged. My good friend and colleague Carl Convoy has informed me Convoy Trucking has decided not to invest in new equipment and as a result our Company is now going to announce a bid to other transportation companies for the Plastic Bottles manufactured at the Albany, GA location. This is an exciting time for us. Due to the Logistics Team success, I am counting on the team to lead us into this strategic aspect of doing business while I remain in China. Once again I am very pleased with the Logistics Team and counting on your future contributions. Regards, Mr. President.
