SUPPLY CHAIN AND LOGISTICS

An inadequate supply chain can lead to unnecessary costs and aggravation for an organization as well as its customers.

 

By having a highly visible and collaborative supply chain that is in sync with the corporate strategy, the organization will improve the total cost of ownership and on-time delivery. Facing these challenges head on will reduce risk and volatility, and will grant the opportunity to assess and implement a strategic solution for improving the supply chain.

 

The Supply Chain Optimization initiative leverages that expertise and knowledge to provide manufacturers an opportunity to create stronger supply chains that function at advanced levels. For more information about the MEP Supply Chain Optimization initiative, please go to: http://mepsupplychain.org or read more about U.S. manufacturers turning to NIST-MEP for Supply Chain Optimization assistance.
