However, that come with a cost as coordinating and planning of subcontractors consumes much manpower while on the other hand, the visibility of external production processes remains limited.
Key functions to optimize your planning processes
Quite often, the actual costs of inventory are inaccurate, underestimated and incomplete. While most manufacturers know they have dead inventory, many are unaware of just how much. However, the costs associated with carrying raw materials and finished goods, represent some of the most significant costs for a high-tech and electronics company. Obsolete inventory carries a very high cost for organizations as it ties up a business’ cash reserves and occupies expensive warehouse space.
The need for manufacturers to focus on compliance and traceability initiatives is increasing significantly across the globe as commercial pressures grow to meet regulatory mandates. By mitigating the risk of product recalls, reducing manufacturing costs and quality controlling end-to-end traceability of processes, organizations will also be able to successfully reduce inefficiencies within the supply chain. Many organizations today still use manual approaches to traceability.
