Plan For Every Part for Lean Material Flow

Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute | May and August | Atlanta, GA

Plan for Every Part (PFEP) is proven to be the most effective way to optimize end to end material flow. Breakthrough results in working capital improvement, inventory right-sizing, on-time-delivery, manufacturing throughput, and cost reduction are achieved through this solution, but how do you do it?

This series will work backward from customer demand to manufacturing conveyance and presentation to supplier replenishment methods and frequencies in order to develop, deploy and sustain end to end lean material flow processes. You will learn the critical components of PFEP that ensure delivery of the right parts, at the right time, in the right place, in the right quantity, with the right quality, at the right cost.

Course 1: Introduction to PFEP and Inventory Sizing – May 16-17, 2017

Course 2: PFEP and Inventory Layout – May 18-19, 2017

Course 3: PFEP and Total Cost Managemen – August 21-22, 2017

Demand-Driven Supply Chain Strategy

Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute | August 22-25 2017 | Atlanta, GA

*Part of the Supply Chain Management (SCM) Certificate

As supply chain executives become more instrumental in supporting long-term strategic objectives for their firms, they need to complement traditional SC operational knowledge with a more strategic view of their role in delivering aligned results to the business.

This course addresses this requirement by exposing and explaining to supply chain leaders different lenses of strategic planning applied to SCM and the specific implications on SC operations. During the course, attendees will have several opportunities to assess their current supply chain strategy, formulate a new one, discuss keys to implement a supply chain strategy and how to review and align one. For the duration of the course, participants will have the opportunity to play with an extended simulation game of a fictional company and see the impact of supply chain strategic decisions in real time while monitoring their ability to manage uncertainty and deliver financial results for the firm.
