The program covers the complete supply chain and has 6 modules.
Module 1 -
The corporate environment, including ownership and size, corporate culture, mission, goals, policies and strategy directly influence the way in which the purchasing & supply chain management function is organised and operates. The objectives, policies and strategies of the purchasing & supply chain management function must be aligned with those of the rest of the enterprise.
Module 2 - Specifying Requirements & Planning Supply
Specifying what an enterprise needs to purchase – along with how much it needs and when and where it is required – is the first, critical step in the purchasing & supply process. It must be done correctly if the rest of the process is to be successful.
Module 3 - Analysing Supply Markets
Knowing supply markets is the basis for understanding supply risks, opportunities and costs, and for making correct supply decisions. Monitoring and analysing supply markets helps the buyer to recognise how supply markets function and to compare and assess supply market options.
Module 4 - Developing Supply Strategies
Supply strategy should be based on assessed requirements and supply market conditions. It will depend on the buyer’s levels of expenditure and of the supply risks involved. Supply strategy involves considering issues such as: the number and types of suppliers to use, the type of supplier relationships to develop and of contracts to use, and which types of purchase operations (such as e-purchasing) to apply.
Module 5 - Appraising & Short-listing Suppliers
Selecting the right supplier is the fundamental basis for effective purchasing & supply. Alternative suppliers must be located, screened, further researched and assessed using appropriate criteria that relate to the type of purchase that is being carried out. This will involve reviewing suppliers’ motivation and capabilities, including their financial situation.
Module 6 - Obtaining & Selecting Offers
Purchasing & supply practice means knowing how to best obtain and select offers from suppliers. Depending on the type of purchase being made, different purchasing approaches and processes will be used (ranging from simple informal contacts to formal tendering). The method of evaluating offers will also vary depending on what is being bought.
This program is aimed specifically at staff responsible for managing purchasing and supply chain operations in enterprises. It responds to enterprises’ rapidly growing need to develop skills in Supply Chain Management, a key area for competitiveness and export performance.
