o Transportation, Logistics
No company can grow without an efficient Supply Chain Management (SCM). Supply Chain Management deals with the design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally. Supply Chain Management is the back bone for any organization. With the increasing pressure of unpredictability in the global market, supply chain professionals are challenged with the task to cut costs and continuously improve efficiency while still focusing on growth. Many are jumping into the bandwagon of investing in innovations to achieve process improvement in order to stay competitive in this complex industry. At this workshop, renown Faculty Members of the Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation (MISI) will speak on current issues pertaining to Supply Chain Challenges in ASEAN, Risks & Resilience and Innovations.

The Top 10 Supply Chain Innovations of All-Time
No. 10: Taylorism
In the late 1800s, the great Frederick Taylor took the first scientific approach to manufacturing. In the early 1880s, he invented the concepts of using time studies on the factory floor, and based on that work, the notion of "standard times" for getting specific tasks done. Later develops the concept of incentive systems and piece-rate pay plans. Taylor's ideas were simply seminal - and often controversial - and dramatically influenced the practice of manufacturing over the next few decades and even to this very day.
No. 9: 3M's Transportation Load Control Center
In 1982, 3M, like every other company, had to leave transportation decisions to each plant and distribution center. Roy Mayeske, at that time the Executive Director of 3M Transportation, had the idea to centralize transportation planning to look for network synergies. 3M took mainframe software being used by Schneider National - one of its major carriers - and modified it to be workable from a shipper perspective. Ship sites called in planned shipments; carriers and routings were phoned back. The LCC is now of course a standard practice today.
No. 8: Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP)
In the late 1970s, Andre Martin ran operations for Abbott Labs Canada, and found himself caught between manufacturing and distribution managers, who could never seem to get inventory questions right and always blamed each other. Realizing that what was needed was a sort of Manufacturing Resources Planning for inventory distribution, Martin led a successful effort to build the first computerized DRP system, which in turn led to a book that created the software category of DRP, as several technology firms built products based on these ideas. Was in many way the start of today's supply chain planning software industry.
No. 7: The FedEx Tracking System
After re-inventing the category of express parcel shipments, FedEx went a step further in the mid-1980s with its development of a new computerized tracking system that provided near real-time information about package delivery. Outfitting drivers with small handheld computers for scanning pick-ups and deliveries, a shipment's status was available end to end. The Fedex system really drove the idea that "information was as important as the package itself," and was foundation of our current supply chain visibility systems and concepts.
No. 6 - The Universal Product Code
Though the idea to use some form of printed and even wireless automatic product identification had been around for decades, lack of standards had precluded individual ideas from gaining any sort of critical mass. In 1970, a company called Logicon wrote a standard for something close to what became known as the Universal Product Code (UPC) to identify via a bar code a specific SKU, an effort that was finalized a few years later by George Laurer. The first implementation of the UPC was in 1974 at a Marsh's supermarket in Troy, OH north of Dayton. The invention triggered the auto ID movement, forever changing supply chain practice and information flow.
No. 5: The Ford Assembly Line
Henry Ford actually got the idea for the assembly line approach from the flow systems of meat packing operations in the Midwest, but it was Ford's adoption of the production approach with a continuously moving line for Model T's in 1913 that revolutionized not only automobile assembly but took the practice of manufacturing to new levels in other sectors as well. Total time of assembly for a single car using the production line fell from 12.5 labor hours to 93 labor minutes, ultimately making cars affordable for the masses, changing not only supply chain but society.
No. 4: Economic Order Quantity (EOQ)
Economic Order Quantity is a mathematical approach for determining the financially optimal amount of product to order from suppliers based on inventory holding costs and ordering costs. The original concept is generally credited to Ford Whitman Harris, a Westinghouse engineer, from an article in 1913, but it was a much later article in the Harvard Business Review in 1934 by RH Wilson that made EOQ mainstream. The formulas are still taught today, and the basis for much supply chain decision-making even in this era.
No. 3: The Ocean Shipping Container
It is hard to imagine today, but until the mid-1950s, there was no standard way to ship products on ocean carriers, and most were shipped on whatever container or platform the producing company deemed best. The result was terribly inefficient handling on both sides of the equation, poor space utilization on the cargo ships, and high logistics costs. Enter Malcom McLean, legendary logistics entrepreneur and visionary who invented the standard steel shipping container first implemented in 1956 at the port of New Jersey. Someone would have thought of it eventually, but McLean's invention started the explosion in global trade.
No. 2: P&G's Continuous Replenishment
Until 1987 or so, order patterns in the consumer goods supply chain were almost totally dependent on whatever the manufacturer sale person and retail buyer decided between them. That's until Procter & Gamble bought a mainframe application from IBM for "continuous replenishment" (which had been deployed a handful of times in other markets), re-wrote it for consumer goods to retail, and as a result dramatically changed that entire value chain by driving orders based on DC withdrawals and sales data. P&G first implemented the approach with Schnuck's Markets in St. Louis, with dramatic results in both lowering inventories while increasing in-stock at retail. KMart was next, taking pipeline diaper inventories from two months to two weeks - but KMart never completely embraced the possibilities. A legendary 1988 meeting between P&G's CEO and Sam Walton led to a CR program there and changed supply chain history, helping propel Wal-Mart to retail dominance and providing the foundation for Efficient Consumer Response (ECR), Category Management, Continuous Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR), and more.
No. 1: The Toyota Production System
When James Womack and several co-authors wrote "The Machine that Changed the World" in 1990, it was of course not a Toyota car that had such an impact, but rather the Toyota Production System (TPS) that was the foundation of the company's dramatic success across the globe. Pioneered by Toyota'sTaiichi Ohno and a few colleagues, TPS not only is the foundation for today's Lean manufacturing and supply chain practices, but the concepts have penetrated versus every area business. TPS truly did change the world.
