Globalization of supply chain management software

the wave of globalization has had a huge impact on the company's supply chain management system, requiring supply chain management software to have better scalability and better ability to integrate with partners. This is also a problem repeatedly mentioned by users at the user conference of I2 company. Due to the low labor price overseas, most companies extend their supply chain to the Far East. Therefore, the company's supply chain management software is also required to meet this latest requirement. A direct result of this is that the key of Supply Chain Management (3) project analysis should have stronger integration ability and agile response ability. The supply chain structure of any global manufacturing enterprise is complex and fragile, involving all links from product design, production, sales to recycling. If we do not pay attention to the management of the supply chain, once there is a lack of information or management problems in any link, the other links of the supply chain will magnify the problems at a geometric level, resulting in the loss of control of the whole supply chain

the rapid development of enterprise globalization is changing the traditional competition law of enterprises. The success or failure of an enterprise depends not only on whether it can effectively play its organizational function, but also on its ability to work together in this globalized information society. Through the analysis of some companies around the world, the American consulting company PRTM (pittiglio Rabin Todd & & McGrath) believes that supply chain management will have outstanding performance in the following three aspects

1. Reduce the management cost after the supply chain management, the total cost will be reduced from 8% - 12% of the total sales to 4% - 5%. Therefore, an enterprise with annual sales of $500million will save $25million to $30million

2. Speed up capital turnover PRTM believes that the enterprise's capital cycle from the purchase of raw materials to the return of sales funds is about 100 days before using SCM, and the best level after using SCM is about 30 days

3. PRTM believes that after using SCM, the best percentage of early delivery and on-time delivery will be 94%, while the current average is 69% - 81%

multinational giants such as Wal Mart and Dell have become new market leaders with outstanding supply chain management capabilities. Nandan nilkani, CEO of Indian software giant Information Systems Technology Co., Ltd., said, "we can gather global supply chain members on the screen." The eight wall clocks in the conference room respectively display American Western time, American Eastern time, Greenwich mean time, Indian time, Singapore time, Hong Kong time, Japanese time and Australian time

it can be seen from the above examples that supply chain competition has become the core content of competition in global business. The globalization of supply chain provides enterprises with opportunities, but at the same time, how to manage this supply chain has become a great challenge for enterprises. With the lengthening and complexity of the supply chain, companies that adopt the globalization strategy have increasingly strengthened their requirements for the operation of the whole company. In today's complex and volatile global trade environment, in order to achieve the sustained growth of sales revenue, we must straighten out every link of the enterprise's internal and external supply chain, from production to management, from administration to personnel, from suppliers to customers, from distributors to retailers, and also deal with many currency and multilingual issues. Negligence in any aspect will lead to a decline in sales. How to enhance the competitiveness of enterprises on the basis of global strategies has become a problem that global excellent enterprises must consider

I2, a supply chain management software provider, is trying to solve this problem by providing more training services and a more responsive technology platform from a technical perspective. The president of I2 said that the supply chain management software of I2 will be further combined with the technical platforms of Microsoft and IBM to provide users with more effective supply chain management services. Customers using Microsoft Outlook and excel will be able to directly access the software provided by I2 company, because these software have been unified with the standards of Microsoft platform. In addition, I2 company will be able to develop supply chain management software on Microsoft platform in the future. For those customers who like this software, integrating the current supply chain management software into Microsoft platform makes their management more convenient and fast. The president of I2 said that at present, some users in the market have begun to use 4 The batch experiment of metal material testing machine can end the hierarchical flash of the curve. I2's master data management information cleaning and consolidation management software, and users respond well to the software of the new platform. This plan will standardize the business suite provided by the company on the Microsoft technology platform, and it will help customers who want their supply chain management software to be more standardized

in the tide of globalization, China is no exception, and has become an important part of the global supply chain of international giants. It is reported that the scale of Nokia's local procurement has been growing in recent years. In 2003, Nokia purchased more than 15billion yuan in China. More than 60% of Nokia's products produced in China are locally sourced components. In April, 2004, the first Nokia Asia Pacific integrated distribution center responsible for the logistics operation of network products was settled, and the flexible production scope of Suzhou Industrial Park will be further increased, marking that China has become an important part of Nokia's global logistics and supply chain. At present, as the main production base of Nokia in the world, all major products of Nokia are produced in China. Logistics and market develop in parallel, which complement each other in achieving Nokia's sales goals. China has become an important part of Nokia's global logistics supply chain

Chinese enterprises initially passively integrated into the global supply chain by establishing joint ventures or OEM, passively accepted the arrangements of the global supply chain of multinational companies, and established low-cost manufacturing capabilities and logistics implementation capabilities. Now, in order to realize internationalization and become a real "Fortune 500", local enterprises must break through the "passive strategy" and consciously integrate into the competition of the global supply chain

according to the "report on the application of management software in the third party logistics industry beyond the conventional configuration after all (2004)" released by Analysys International, a market research organization, due to the overall weakness of China's management software market in 2004, the good development of logistics management software has become the biggest highlight of the year, and its market scale is expanding rapidly. In the five years from 2005 to 2009, this market will grow rapidly at a compound annual growth rate of 19.15%. By 2009, the market scale will exceed 1.5 billion yuan

previously, the survey report on the logistics management software market released by CCID and CCW, two major domestic market consulting institutions, showed that logistics management software is expected to surpass enterprise resource planning system (ERP) and become the main enterprise management information software in China in the next few years

it can be seen that users of China's existing logistics management software will generally encounter problems of software upgrading and system expansion in the next two years, which not only requires good scalability of software products to meet the requirements of globalization, but also requires software manufacturers to have good technical support and after-sales service capabilities. In this regard, sap, EXE, Boke information and other large management software manufacturers have great advantages. Some small manufacturers will be phased out because they are unable to continue to develop upgraded versions and provide good services. Therefore, how to deal with the globalization of supply chain management software is not only a problem faced by purchasing logistics software enterprises, but also a problem to be solved by many supply chain management software providers. It is hoped that China's supply chain management software providers can seize business opportunities and do well in the tide of globalization. (end)
