Supply Chain Management Projects with APO

  • Jörg Thomas Dickersbach


For a long time the focus in logistics projects has been on the optimization of certain logistic functions — e.g. the optimization of the transportation and distribution structure — usually with small concern to the adjacent processes and to the complete product portfolio. The supply chain management approach differs from this by grouping products with similar properties (from a logistics point of view) to a supply chain and taking all the processes — in SCOR terminology: plan, source, make, deliver — per supply chain into account. Figure 1.1 visualizes the different approaches to structure the logistics processes within a company.
