GRA founding partner Carter McNabb will present a seminar titled "Using the Science of Supply Chain Optimisation to Improve Service Levels and Reduce Costs" on Friday July 14, as a guest speaker at the Queensland 2006 Logistics & Supply Chain Conference.
Industry research and benchmarking studies show that superior supply chain performance translates directly to higher service levels, reduced costs and greater efficiency.
Carter McNabb’s presentation will therefore explore opportunities to use a science-based planning approach to determine the right mix of inventory to deliver targeted service levels at the lowest cost.
An analytical framework for demand forecasting, inventory optimisation and replenishment planning will be provided and opportunities to better align supply chains with customer behaviour will also be explored.
Case studies with blue chip Australian organisations will be presented to demonstrate real world applications of these techniques.
The Queensland 2006 Logistics & Supply Chain Conference is the largest logistics and supply chain conference held in Queensland.
The event is suitable for logisticians, practitioners, academics, procurement and inventory managers, government contractors, supply chain managers, educators and anyone interested in optimising their supply chain. This year's theme is "Availability".
