,What are your thoughts on sponsored tweets? Do you ignore them or interact
with them? Would you trust a sponsored tweet if it was issued by a sports
entity you liked/admired/idolized? Of course, thehas been a part of the
Twitter experience since spring of this year, as the social media behemoth
tries to monetize all that content.But what about promotions that
aren’t included with Twitter’s advertising aspect? Would you
trust them if they came from somebody in the public eye? In New Orleans,
theTimes-Picayuneis trying its hand at promoting its website with a little
help from perhaps the most popular aspect of New Orleans which begs a question
or two:Would you visit if Drew Brees asked you to? Even if it was through?
What about if are getting paid to do so?That’s what the newspaper is
banking on, and while Brees is the most popular of the Saints players to take
part in the promotion, he’s by no means the only Saints player to do
so. From the article in question:Under a contract with Advance Digital,
players Drew Brees, Lance Moore, Tracy Porter, Pierre Thomas and Jonathan
Vilma each tweeted praise for the newly redesigned Saints community on this
month and included a link to the site, urging their Twitter subscribers to
check it out.,So if one of these popped up on your Twitter stream, would you
even want to visit the site being promoted or would you bypass it for more
tweet reading? Here’s an example of these posts, taken from
Brees’ Twitter account:,Drew BreesHey, Who Dat nation! Get the
latestnews at:via web · powered by,Drew BreesWho Dats! If you

“#spon” hashtags? Of course, that’s not the same as
Twitter’s official “Sponsored Tweet” logo, but it serves
the same purpose. Are these tweets a conflict of interest, considering just
how much coverage? Another question comes to mind when looking over these
sponsored tweets: Why haven’t more newspapers gone this route,
especially if there’s a local team that has a rabid fan following?Drew
Brees has almost 700,000 followers, and if his sponsored tweets get a one
percent clickthrough rate, that’s still 7000 additional visitors
potentially receives. I’m not sure there are any newspapers out there
that would turn down an additional 7000 visitors on a day-to-day basis.for
pointing this out.,,Supply chain management (SCM) is one of the key drivers
in today’s business world with offshore sourcing, foreign competition
and global markets.The responsiveness required to keep the inbound supply
chain flowing with materials and products and to keep store shelves filled
is demanding. SCM requires reducing costs, increasing inventory velocity and
compressing cycle time; and these three may not be compatible or
consistent.Doing all this-and doing it well-takes creativity and management
skill. However there is a factor that limits the design, development and
implementation of such supply chains. That factor is accounting and how it
recognizes and treats logistics costs. Accounting is an impediment for
logistics whether for supply chain management, both international and
domestic, for lean and for outsourcing.Generally accepted accounting
principles create the foundation so that every company reports its financial
data the same way. This financial snapshot is consistent then from firm to
firm. This makes analysis of the data and comparisons possible.These
accounting standards have a long history. They date back to Henry Ford and
the Model A. Companies then may have been vertically integrated with a primary
focus on domestic sales, sourcing and production. That business model has
become nearly extinct, especially for large companies. As a result,
accounting rules have not kept up with present business operations and
practices.Some differences with supply chain management and accounting
are:,Process versus Transactions.SCM flows across the organization. As a
process, it flows across many of the company departments and boundaries.
Accounting is transactions-oriented with its focus on identifying and
summarizing vertical sales and make-or-buy activities.,Organization
Direction.Supply chain management is horizontal and crosses departments and
organization boundaries. Transactions are vertical and are consistent with
organization silos.,Scope.SCM extends into suppliers and logistics service
providers to gain inventory velocity and to reduce cycle time. Accounting
stays within the company facilities and boundaries and looks inward.,Outward
or Inward.Supply chain management looks both company-inward and outward to
deal with suppliers, transport firms, warehouses and other logistics service
providers. Collaboration is important to managing the complex, global supply
chain. Accounting is traditional and focuses within the corporate
boundaries.,Continuous versus Discrete.SCM is ongoing. Product is always
flowing. Accounting looks at different summaries which create supply chain
disconnects. Logistics costs are individually recognized, not recognized at
all or recognized in different places. For example, freight and warehouses
show on the income statement and are recapped monthly. Inventory appears on
the balance sheet and is presented annually. So three key logistics elements
are dissected and shown in different financial reports. And nowhere does
“time”, a vital business driver and the action that creates
inventory and service, appear on any financial statement. To some extent this
view of logistics costs makes accounting obsolete for supply chain
management.,Dynamic versus Static.Supply chain management is constantly
changing–as suppliers, customers, plants and warehouses, shipment
sizes and order mix and as store locations change. This contrasts with
accounting which has the historical perspective of what has already
happening. As a result, accounting does not understand changes in
transportation costs, for example, because of changes in the distance inbound
and outbound shipments must travel, or in the shipment size or in the mix
of commodities being shipped.,These differences make it difficult to develop
meaningful performance metrics for supply chain management that are
recognized in the board room and that are aligned with the company strategic
plan. Financial metrics, while commonly used, have limited application to
supply chain management performance improvement.For example, inventory
velocity, inventory turns and inventory yield maximization are important to
achieving the best returns on inventory and on the capital that it represents.
Cycle time, from purchase order to sale or time within the total supply chain,
are measure of company performance with strong bottom line implications. Yet
none of these are part of traditional accounting measures which are rooted
in the past.Today’s business world is focused on the customer. The
perfect customer order is a key performance metric for gaining and maintaining
customers and for achieving deeper customer penetration. But again, these
are not standard financial measure.Similarly developing unique supply chain
programs that differentiate by A vs B vs C inventory, or by customer or by
product family segment or other delineator are not supported by accounting.
Financial standards do not readily recognize such stratifications. Sourcing
right decisions are also restricted by accounting which has blinders as to
the potential impact of the outsourcing decision on the company and
transforming its processes, operations and results.These limitations also
impact the success of lean program development and lean success. Waste,
non-value added, actions do not conform to traditional accounting. As a
result, time and inventory waste identification and removal run counter to
how accounting sees these manufacturing and supply chain processes and
sub-processes. Incremental and continuous improvement with its flow and pull
are part of adapting to the new business model of faster and better and less
expensive. Unfortunately cost accounting practices are enablers of the old
ways, not the new ways of business and business models.Accounting
professionals have recognized the limitations of accounting in today’s
business. Activity based costing is one way they try to adjust to the new
world. But ABC is not incorporated into income statements and balance sheets,
which still reflect an antiquated way of summarizing business financials and
performance.At some point Accounting must step up and stop band-aiding a bad
system and redefine and reinvent itself to be part of the global business
world. Until that happens, companies will continue not to properly measure
and improve their performance, operations and results.Add

wholesale suppliers, verified drop shippers and information about trade

that waste. The initial question then is where and how to begin implementing
lean supply chain management.Three points must be recognized. First, lean
requires a strategy. It is not just a supply chain program or just a
manufacturing program. It is a paradigm that requires a change throughout
the organization if it is to be truly successful in removing waste and adding
value. Organizations must look at everything differently.Second, lean goes
beyond the four walls of the warehouse or factory. It goes beyond the
organizational boundaries of the company and extends to suppliers and to
customers. This breadth of scope is why it requires strategy for
success.Third, there are lean principles that must be the basis of the lean
supply chain. Namely-1)Determine value from the view of the customer, not
the view of the company.2)Make the product and information flow.3)Pull
product; do not push it.4)Manage toward perfection with continuous
improvement.CHALLENGES.Supply chain management, especially developing and
implementing lean supply chain management, has challenges that must be
acknowledged. These are in addition to the “usual” company issues
with lean, such as lack of implementation know-how, resistance to change,
lack of a crisis to create urgency, gaining resources and commitment, and
back-sliding.Sometimes these challenges are not addressed or appreciated
with lean SCM. These include–,International sourcing-Procuring
finished goods or raw materials in China, India, Germany, Brazil and elsewhere
outside of North America creates a significant obstacle to lean. The
order-to-delivery time is long. Time is a waste, and it compounds the
inventory waste issue by making firms buffer and carry more inventory than
is needed to compensate for the time. Being lean with a 20-40 day transit
time brings a unique test to developing lean SCM,Accounting-Standard cost
accounting and generally accepted accounting does not recognize waste as lean
does. Not having financial support to waste and value identification makes
lean difficult to implement and sustain. Inventory and time are not regarded
as lean does. Inventory is not an asset for lean. Accounting systems do not
recognize time. Rework is not treated the same with accounting.,Organization
silos-Supply chain management and lean are processes that cross organization
boundaries. Implementing a process that goes horizontal on a vertical and
functionally defined organization creates gaps in both processes. These gaps
create areas where waste can develop and where removing it can be
difficult.,Number of firms-There are many suppliers and many logistics
service providers in a supply chain. Some of these are visible; some are less
visible. Many suppliers or logistics service firms do not practice lean.
Taking lean outside the four walls of the company into other firms adds to
the time and complexity of implementing and becoming lean.,HOW TO BEGIN.The
initial step to implementing lean is to evaluate and to measure the present
supply chain. You have to know where you are to begin the long journey of
continuous improvement. Value stream mapping (VSM) is a visual tool to define
the current state of a company’s supply chain, to identify waste and
to lay the foundation in determining the future state flow of the supply
chain.Value stream mapping (VSM) identifies waste in supply chains,
especially with regards to time and inventory. Initial VSM efforts include
defining the present value stream for product families, those that share
common operations or have large volume impact, either units or dollars, or
other delineator as determined.With mapping the current supply chain state,
you can then draw on the various lean tools to design the future supply chain
flow. This future state should include the infrastructure to support
it-training, culture, quality methods, accounting systems, and investment
policies.LEAN TOOLS.There are tools to becoming lean. Each have differences
as to ease of use, time to implement, benefits and risk.,5S-The
5S’s-Sort, Straighten, Sweep/Shine, Standardize,
Sustain/Self-discipline–is a visual way to organize to remove waste
with extra time for travel or employees. This tool can be used in distribution
centers and in offices.,Rapid setup-Rapid setup or changeover has application
in the warehouse to adjust layout for seasonal products, new products and
changes in what products are fast-moving and often picked and the
complementary items that go with these fast-movers. Reducing the time can
involve housekeeping and maintenance (including 5S), setting up smaller areas
for SKUs, technology (such as warehouse management systems and
RFID).,Standardize-Standardize involves efficient work process that are
repeatedly followed to define the who, what, how, where, and when. This tool
helps firms to synchronize the time required to pull and ship all the orders
(takt time) and the actual time to do this (cycle time). It can be the basis
for employee training. Use of this tool can range from warehouses, issuing
purchase orders and other office activities.,Kanban-Using kanban presents
a new, unique way to view “warehousing” and inventory positioning
in the supply chain. . It presents a way to coordinate multi-step processes
for multiple products. With kanban, small stocks of inventory are placed in
dedicated location(s) for supply chain control. This approach runs counter
to the traditional way of large distribution centers delivered truckloads
of products to stores or customers. Instead mini-”warehouses”
are used to position inventory closer to the end customer and increase the
rapidity of delivery and inventory turns. Point of sale and other technologies
can be the withdrawal signal to trigger both drawing from and replenishing
kanbans. Items placed in supply chain kanbans could be limited to high value
inventory, such as “A” items, and then using regular warehouse
for the B and C items. A variation to kanban is with the import supply chains
and differentiating A versus B versus C items and using faster mode and faster
carrier transit methods for select items. This reduces time and inventory
with smaller batch sizes for these select items. All inventories are not
treated the same way from suppliers nor with regards to
warehousing.,Workcell-A workcell is a unit larger than an individual
operation but smaller than a department. It is self-contained as to equipment
and resources. The potential application is with combining multi-operations
into a central area exists where warehouse do additional activities, such
as kitting or assembly.,6 sigma. This is an advanced tool and ties to quality.
The focus is variation and controlling and is preventing errors. Statistical
measurement is fundamental. It is used throughout the supply chain, not just
in select activities or locations. Six sigma takes lean supply chain
management to its ultimate level.There is no “one” tool for lean
SCM. Various tools can be used in different areas and in different sequences
to add value and reduce waste.CONCLUSION.Often, there are complementary or
supporting processes with lean supply chain management. The additional
processes may include Strategic Sourcing to manage supplier performance for
critical and important items; Strategic Customer to gain the needed viewpoint
of key customers; and Sales and Operations Planning to blend the strategic
sourcing and customer with the tactical day-to-day supply chain
management.Getting started with lean and sustaining it with continuous
improvement is not easy. Lean takes time, years, to accomplish. There is no
quick fix to being lean. Often the waste has become incorporated into the
daily operation company-wide and is accepted as part of doing business. In
some instances, there may be too much instability in a supply chain to begin
lean. The first step is then to increase stability before beginning lean.But
the benefits can be significant from gaining market share, reducing capital
tied up in inventory, increasing profitability, improving customer service,
increasing capacity and taking time out of the entire company’s way
of doing things.Add to|||provides logistics consulting for strategic and

its inventories.This decision has significant implications and impact for
its supply chain and for the supply chains (and manufacturing) of its
suppliers. Lean logistics has just taken a new meaning for everyone. Smaller
lot sizes, increased flexibility, more rapid deliveries have been ratcheted
up even more as a requirement and way of doing business. Companies are
assessing expanding from lean logistics—where tools of lean are used
in segments of the company, such as warehousing-and becoming lean across their
entire supply chain.Lean is becoming a strategy method for gaining
competitive advantage and even for survival, not just for manufacturers, but
also for retailers and wholesalers. Adding value and removing waste are no
longer options for companies. Non-lean practicing companies face competition
from foreign made goods-competition which can have significant impacts on
their business and industry. Even lean practitioners understand that the
effort to be lean is ongoing.Manufacturers have recognized the value of lean
for their production area. However lean has not been recognized by retailers,
wholesalers, manufacturers and logistics service providers, including 3PLs,
as part of a strategy for growth. The value and waste of supply chains has
not been given sufficient attention. Some of the lack of attention reflects
recognizing the intricacies, complexities and differences of supply chain
management, especially where international sourcing and manufacturing is
involved.Surprisingly, retailers and wholesalers have often not recognized
the need for lean in their businesses. Their business approach often uses
a batch and queue inventory approach. Their common attempt at being
competitive has been to push suppliers to reduce prices. After years of this
approach, that fruit is no longer low-hanging and may not even be on the tree.
So what are they to do to stay competitive? One sound option is to develop
and implement lean supply chain management.WHAT LEAN SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
IS.Lean and supply chain management have much in common as to recognizing
the customer, being based on pull, requiring flow, assessing the waste of
inventory, and creating value with growth, not just reducing costs. Companies
with a lean supply chain, the inbound from suppliers and the outbound to stores
or to customers, have identified the value of the supply chain and the waste
that exists and are removing the waste.,The purpose of a lean supply chain
is to meet the 5R’s of logistics, namely, inventory that is:- the RIGHT
product- in the RIGHT quantity- in the RIGHT condition- at the RIGHT place-
at the RIGHT timeActivities that support the 5Rs add value. This applies both
to the movement of product and to the movement of information. Conversely,
any activities that do not add value, do not further these 5R’s, are
waste.By being lean, companies are efficient at lower volumes / lower size
lots, have greater flexibility; gain higher productivity, increase product
mix diversity, improve rapidity of product development cycle, and have higher
quality of performanceWaste can be difficult to recognize; it is seen and
accepted of how the business of the company is conducted. It is deemed as
part of the ongoing “process” and is built into whatever is
done.Drawing on the types of waste in manufacturing, there are seven types
of waste in supply chain management:1)Over supply.This is supplying product
at a faster rate than customer requires, having it ahead of demand. Bringing
in large quantities of product without matching demand creates excess
inventory and can cause write-down and fire sales to draw down inventories-and
revenues and profits.2)Transportation.Unnecessary or slow movement of
product adds no value. This can include movement of inventory between company
facilities.3)Inventory.Firms have more finished product, raw materials, or
work in process than the absolute minimum. This includes inventory in transit,
regardless of whether it is treated as inventory when it is delivered or not;
it is still inventory regardless of such transaction
nuances.4)Waiting.Delays in previous supply chain steps cause unnecessary
waiting of people or equipment. Inventory at warehouses reflect
waiting.5)Movement.Any unnecessary movement of people during their work is
to be avoided. This may be seen in warehouses or in special operations such
as kitting.6)Defective Service or Product.Poor quality, rework, or scrap
because it does not meet the customer requirements adds no value.7)Over
processing.This is doing more than is necessaryThese waste activities occur
in different ways for both Make To Order and Make to Stock companies.
Compressing cycle time and increasing inventory velocity are the preferred
results for lean supply chain management.The first requirement to becoming
lean is to be able to identify waste. If you are not able to see waste, you
cannot begin to remove it and become lean. Waste impacts time required,
inventory investment and turns, capital tied up and not earning an adequate
return. Lean is about removing waste, not just reducing it.Part 2 will discuss
implementing lean, challenges and obstacles to lean, lean tools, and the
benefits.Add to|||provides logistics consulting for strategic and tactical
