GRA is a sponsor of this year’s APICS International Conference to be held in the Gold Coast on 15-18 June. The theme for this year’s event is Sustainable Manufacturing.
GRA partner, Carter McNabb, will present Demand Planning, Inventory Optimisation and S&OP at Super Cheap Auto at noon on Monday 16 June.
The case study presentation will detail the demand and supply chain management issues confronted by Super Cheap’s fast growing business, how the company went about addressing them - from a people, processes and systems perspective and the results achieved.
Super Cheap’s challenge was to get over 10,000 products across more than 230 stores and 5 distribution centres to the right place, at the right time, in the right quantity at low possible cost, while the company continued to open stores at the rate of two per week.
The need to plan inventory accurately to meet service levels at low cost become a critical success factor. The results of the project were and continue to be great, particularly considering a depressed retail sales environment. GRA will also have a stand at the event.
