A WORD FROM THE MD...

In an ever-changing world, where politics and other external forces impacts the global economy
directly, it is unlikely that any supply chain will survive unless strict application of good corporate
governance is embedded. The only true survival kit in any supply chain structure, is to ensure that the
foundation is entrenched with a mixture of good policies, procedures and workflows, that are enforced
and audited on a continuous basis via endorsement by a professional supply chain management
individual.

If digitalisation is the global buzzword, why do companies still suffer from the aftermath of age old technology to drive their supply chain compliance? In the modern world, where printers can manufacture literally any component, why would companies still make use of manual paper back-up systems. There are currently great systems available that could save companies millions.

Understanding and implementing the principle of “Total Cost of Ownership” is starting to become a bigger reality in any modern supply chain management structure. The TCO concept is not only a philosophy but an ever-growing reality in a declining global economy. Supply Chain Professionals are forever in search of extracting value from baseline pricing structures to ensure that competitive input costs can be realised from these cost initiatives.

Managing one’s strategic and critical-to- production assets where green procurement is at the order of the day, it is imperative to understand the impact of discarding assets where the life of these assets are still way beyond pre-mature human intervention and expectation. Understanding the replacement strategy of a company is a critical element in maintaining not only a green-procure- environment within any company, but it creates a footprint for maximum utilisation and proper traceability in the company

After almost three decades in the supply chain management industry and profession, it is evident that this profession has evolved from being a traditional cost element in any company’s input cost, to a highly sophisticated and key enabler to drive down costs. This can only be achieved where supply chain
professionals are given the opportunity to assist with key financial-, procurement- and proper approval structures in a company
