The Implementation of Supply Chain Management image
At the beginning, supply chain management originated from the study of logistics support system. Later, commercial enterprises and transportation enterprises began to use some of the principles of logistics to carry out "logistics management", gradually forming the current supply chain management model, and became the factory enterprise to carry out lean Production management is an essential management improvement module for realizing just-in-time production.

Based on the manufacturing point of view, the supply chain is a series of continuous activities, the process of converting raw materials into a series of final products and continuously realizing value-added process. From the perspective of topology, the supply chain management promoted and implemented by LIJIANG Glass is a network of autonomous or semi-autonomous enterprise entities, including some subsidiaries (LIJIANG Intelligent Technology Co,.Ltd. -- The Glass Processing Implementation ERP Software R&D Company, Manufacturing Plant (LIJIANG Glass Automation Equipment Co,.Ltd. -- The assembly manufacturer), Warehouse, External Supplier, Transportation Company, Distribution Center, Agent Distributor Retail (such as the US market, the Eastern European market, the Middle East market and the Indian market, etc.) and the final equipment users.
A complete supply chain management of the glass deep processing industry starts from the supplier of raw materials and ends at the end user.

LIJIANG Glass is a part of the glass deep-processing industry in global. The core content of its supply chain management implementation includes two: the first is to advocate collaborative business; the second is to carry out advanced plans in the scope of the supply chain. The essence of LIJIANG Glass' supply chain management is effective collaboration through customer and supplier networks. At the business process level, collaborative commerce mainly includes the following aspects: coordination of demand and forecast data, coordination of purchase order operations, coordination of production planning and supply capacity, coordination of quality management and quality certification, and sharing of price and cost information. According to the scope of collaborative operation, it can be divided into: the collaboration between LIJIANG Glass enterprise and external partners, and the collaboration between various departments or business divisions within LIJIANG Glass enterprise.

The benefits brought to enterprises by carrying out collaborative business operations are enormous. Simultaneous operation of the supply chain under inventory minimization and effective management can enable LIJIANG Glass to reduce costs and speed up the flow of products in the supply chain.

The Role of Supply Chain Management image
​​​​1. Reduce inventory and reduce costs.

A business process of an enterprise is mainly to place an order, produce, deliver, and settle. In the ERP system, the order is first entered in the ordering module, and then the production plan and material requirement plan are generated in the production module, and then transferred to the purchasing module. In the procurement module, a procurement plan is generated according to the inventory situation and demand plan, and then the purchase order will be received from the supplier and delivered in time.

LIJIANG Glass has reached cooperation agreements with world-renowned brands of insulating glass processing equipment accessories manufacturers such as German Siemens PLC control system, German Schneider electronic system, Japanese Yaskawa servo motor, British Trio system and Taiwan Hiwin slider guide screw, and other world-renowned brands. Could already achieve the zero cost of Jinan LIJIANG Glass production scheduling and stocking plan.

In this process, since the ERP system can quickly transfer information between the supplier and the production workshop, LIJIANG Glass, as a manufacturer, does not need to prepare a large amount of inventory to ensure production, which greatly reduces the cost of inventory, reducing production costs. Effective supply chain management and ERP systems optimize all aspects of the process. Except for inventory, because suppliers and manufacturers have established strategic partnerships, the procedures for signing supply contracts are greatly simplified, and transaction costs are greatly reduced.

2. Quickly respond to customer needs and shorten the time of the whole process.

The establishment of the supply chain and the application of the ERP system in the enterprise make the information transfer faster and more accurate. When the seller obtains the customer's demand information, it can pass the information to the workshop for assembly and production through the ERP system and other software.

It will not cause product backlog or lose market opportunities due to information asymmetry and can meet customer needs promptly, increase profits and reduce losses. The ERP system also makes the formalities between enterprises in the supply chain simple and easy, greatly reducing the time of the whole process. For example, in the process of purchasing, due to the transparency and timeliness of information, the synchronization operation efficiency of enterprises in the supply chain is improved.

3. Reduce risk.

The rapid transmission of information and the transparency of information enables enterprises to make corresponding decisions and plans as soon as possible in the face of opportunities and problems, effectively control the business process and prevent problems from production scheduling to equipment delivery. , reducing the risk of LIJIANG Glass business operations.

4. Improve the core competitiveness of enterprises

In the entire supply chain, each enterprise only does the part that it is best at, that is, its core part, and the part that it is not good at is done by the partners in the supply chain so that the limited resources of the enterprise can be used in a centralized manner. The core part of the enterprise makes LIJIANG Glass more competitive.

Shorten the Turnover Cycle and Reduce the Turnover Inventory.

Good forecasts, guaranteed delivery rates, quality control and shortened replenishment lead-times can further reduce uncertainties. Good forecasting requires improved demand management, the ability to coordinate various functions to improve forecasting capabilities, close contact with clients, and set reasonable safety stock levels. For example, set up a regular meeting mechanism between planners, sales managers, and account managers, and notify procurement and suppliers of changes in demand as early as possible. In addition, companies need to establish good business relationships with supply chain partners to enhance the on-time delivery rate and quality of supplier supplies. On the one hand, there should be willingness to share information between various functions within the company and suppliers, and on t

3 Steps of Cost Reduction in Supply Chain Management image
  • Cost reduction potential: 10% - negotiation
The negotiation level is mainly to integrate demand, integrate suppliers, and centralize procurement to achieve economies of scale and reduce costs.
Of course, in addition to economies of scale, negotiation also has some basis for cost reduction, such as the trend of increasing production efficiency year by year, the existence of a learning curve, the purchaser helping suppliers to continuously improve, and paying due returns, and the pressure of end customers to reduce prices. LIJIANG Glass aims at the multi-level and multi-faceted automated processing needs of glass deep processing practitioners, reduces the complexity of the supply side, increases the scale benefit of the supply side, and improves the production efficiency of equipment assembly.

  • Cost reduction potential: 20% - process improvement
Process improvement mainly refers to the improvement of the production process and transaction process.
In the production process, modularization, standardization, lean production (referring to a standardized production management specification with zero waste and "zero" inventory), six sigma, and other methods can be used to optimize; the transaction process needs to rely on advanced information e-commerce systems And artificially optimized stable business relationship to improve (short-term relationship instability, high risk, and other factors will lead to increased costs). LIJIANG Glass adopts a team-based production management system. Responsibilities and production tasks are assigned by the team leader-squad leader-assembler layer by layer and adopt an advanced ERP production management system to digitize production costs and visualize production processes.

  • Cost reduction potential: 70% - design optimization
R&D costs account for a large proportion of the total cost. To reduce costs, the supplier's process needs to be fed back to the buyer's product design.
Suppliers are required to intervene and collaborate in the early stages of the design phase, to integrate supplier capabilities (such as process awareness advantages in material selection, technical specifications, and tolerance levels) to make up for the deficiencies in the designer's production process, from product design optimization, resulting in cost reduction.
Of course, to achieve the above goals, on the one hand, it is necessary to have certain technical and management capabilities in procurement, and to be able to link R&D personnel and suppliers; LIJIANG Glass is willing to work with agents and distributors in various regions of the world to assist you in optimizing your inquiry and bidding operations for users of glass deep processing equipment and deepen the cooperative relationship.
