Consumer Segmentation Consumers: Persons who consume products or services Customer segmentation: Retailers cannot target individual consumers, because the cost and complexity would be too high. Therefore, they cluster their consumer base into segments, where each segment has a high degree of commonality Consumer Types Impacts Merchandise assortments and brands Decor and ambience of the store Service package offered 2 ANSHUMAN DUTTA

Supply Chain Management “Supply Chain Management is a set of approaches utilized to efficiently integrate suppliers, manufacturers, warehouses, and stores, so that the merchandise is produced and distributed in the right quantities, to the right locations, and at the right time, in order to minimize the system wide costs while satisfying the service requirements” The 3 key processes in the supply chain are: Inventory Management Warehouse Management Transportation Management 23 ANSHUMAN DUTTA

Bullwhip Effect ANSHUMAN DUTTA 28 What is the bullwhip effect? The ripple effect of small changes in customer demand are magnified upstream through a supply chain all the way from the customer to the retailer to distributor to manufacturer. It is so named because of the resemblance to a bullwhip as the variability of demand increases sharply when you progress up the supply chain.

15 Key Innovations in supply chain strategy Ford Assembly Line – Henry Ford installs the first moving assembly line of an entire automobile, the Model T, first produced in 1908 ANSHUMAN DUTTA 30 Ocean Shipping Container: - Malcom McLean invented the standard steel shipping container first implemented in 1956 at the port of New Jersey Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)  –Started when computer systems first had the capability to transfer data to other computer systems. Enables the exchange of electronic business documents. Material Resource Planning (MRP) – Josef Orlicky makes the first MRP system in Racine, Wisconsin. A year later, Gene Thomas from IBM invents the Bill of Materials Processor. For the first time, manufacturers could break down the BOM on a computer Universal Product Code (UPC) – a company called Logicon wrote a standard for something close to what became known as the Universal Product Code (UPC) to identify via a barcode a specific SKU. The first implementation of the UPC was in 1974 at a Marsh's supermarket in Troy, OH. Enterprise Resource Planning – In 1990, Gartner Group first employed the acronym ERP which came to represent a larger whole, reflecting the evolution of application integration beyond manufacturing.  Dell Direct Orders – Michael Dell started his company in his dorm room shipping computers to customers. This developed into a unique model of make to order that provided custom configurations to customers and shipped to them FedEx Tracking System – After re-inventing the category of express parcel shipments, FedEx went a step further by developing a new computerized tracking system that provided near real-time information about package delivery. Outfitting drivers with small handheld computers for scanning pick-ups and deliveries, a shipment's status was available end to end. P&G's Continuous Replenishment: Order patterns were totally dependent on sales and retail buyer input until P&G bought a mainframe application from IBM for "continuous replenishment" re-wrote it for retail, and changed that entire value chain by driving orders based on DC withdrawals and sales data. Walmart Cross Docking – With rapid expansion in the number of Walmart stores, the company needed an effective communication system. They introduced the first cross docking system, which enabled them to track goods across all their DCs and stores. The Toyota Production System:  Pioneered by Toyota's Taiichi Ohno and a few colleagues, TPS not only is the foundation for today's lean manufacturing and supply chain practices, but the concepts have penetrated virtually every area business Rise of the PC and Internet – this allowed the development of decision support systems for the supply chain on PCs as well as collaboration platforms for companies with their trading partners.  HP Postponement – The ability to delay differentiation in product design can convey many advantages. HP was the first to use this approach delaying some of the localized decision for its DeskJet printers by customizing the printers at its local distribution centers rather than at its factories.

15 Key Innovations in Supply Chain Strategy 1998 – Amazon Order & Delivery - Jeff Bezos left Wall Street to start Amazon and within four months, Amazon.com became extremely popular. Within a month of its website launch it had filled orders from 50 states and 45 other countries. Amazon.com carried only about 2,000 titles in its Seattle warehouse; however, usually no warehouse was needed because most orders were placed through wholesalers and publishers. ANSHUMAN DUTTA 31 2000s – RFID , Track and Trace – RFID was developed at the MIT Auto-ID Center. It is a code-carrying technology, and can be used in place of a barcode to enable non-line of sight-reading. Synonymous with track-and-trace solutions, and has a critical role to play in supply chains.

Slide 31

Supply Chain Myths ANSHUMAN DUTTA 32 1. Reduce costs at all cost: This strategy suggests that reducing cost is the most important objective, which is not always the case. Companies need to "balance cost with service, invest in flexibility to reduce risk, and deploy the appropriate IT infrastructure for long-term visibility and growth." 2. Invest in flexibility: "Identifying the right trade-off between risk-mitigation strategies and cost is an important challenge." Companies need to identify how to get flexibility either through process, system, or product design and where is right to invest. 3. Apply the same operations strategy across the board: You can't deploy one supply chain across multiple channels, customers and products. Each product may have different requirements and characteristics. Product characteristics have to be matched with supply chain strategies. David Simchi-Levi uses the example of Gap Inc. The company owns three separate brands: Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy. Each of the brands has a different customer value proposition. Because of this, there is a need for multiple supply chains to fit each type of customer. 4. Deploy the latest and best Information Technology (IT): "IT investment has to be driven by business needs." The latest technology cannot drive a change in the business because the company wants to keep up with the latest trends. 5. Ignore IT because it is just another commodity: Don't ignore IT altogether. While previously we discussed (Myth #4) that all technology is not necessarily right for your business, sometimes when technology is combined with the right business processes for supply chain integration it can significantly improve performance. 6. Treat Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) as charity: Many executives believe that CSR is a waste of money and time; however, in many situations "when CSR is aligned with business value, it generates a new stream of revenue or an innovative way to reduce costs." 7. Leave Operations to the functional areas: "Operations significantly affect the firm's revenue and profit goals precisely because of their ability to control costs, shorten response times, and improve customer service." All of senior management needs to be involved with defining goals in Operations.
