It regularly happens while you are planning your production for this week that you find out that the supplier of an important component delivered late or insufficient quality. Responding to such events is more of an art than a science. Your planners must start making phone calls to explore and use the flexibility of your customers and the production department. This is very time-consuming and of course relies on tacit knowledge of the planners, which is hard to share between planners.

In this workshop, we will explore early detection mechanisms, including drivers, of supply problems (spoiler alert: you may actually be to blame for a supplier’s late delivery). We will also discuss successful organizational measures for solving them.
