MBP 3/16 Measures and best practices for “Integration into Existing Planning and Management Systems”

“[…] but how am I supposed to explain to a colleague in charge of R&D that he has to give me part of his budget so that I can take action to avoid a problem that doesn’t exist yet?“ (Interview – Operations Manager, medical device manufacturer)

SCRM is most efficiently implemented, if management is regularly involved and interested in the SCRM measures and seeks to integrate them into existing planning and management practices (particularly those which add direct corporate value, such as budget planning, quality management, production planning, etc.). Individual components of SCRM can be used as decision support tools.

In the numerous expert interviews and focus groups with company representatives and scientists for the development of the maturation model, the following measures were identified: 

  • Develop an SCRM strategy: What are your core issues? What do you want to achieve? What supply chain risks can arise? Which projects should you tackle first? What financial, time, and human resources should you allocate to them?
  • Regularly align your business strategy with your SCRM strategy as changes in business strategies can also affect supply chains.
  • When formulating and designing an SCRM strategy, take into account the basic attitude of the company management towards supply chain risks (e.g. risk-averse or risk-taking).
  • Integrate aspects of SCRM into existing planning systems, such as budget planning and other management approaches (e.g. quality management and sustainability), and make sure to avoid duplicating tasks.
  • Take SCRM aspects into account in strategic decision-making.
  • Try to expand the collaborative approach of SCRM (e.g. through detailed supplier selection, joint supplier development, etc.).
  • In addition to SCRM risks, potential, associated opportunities should also be considered (opportunity management).
