Supply Chain Videocast Using Supply Chain Modeling to Improve Operations and Outperform the Competition The PriceSmart Story Todays Panel Frank Diaz Senior Vice President, Distribution & Logistics PriceSmart Toby Brzoznowski Executive Vice President LLamasoft Broadcast Made Possible By: Agenda Presenter Introductions The Value of Supply Chain Design PriceSmart Case Study Tips for Building a Supply Chain Design Team Wrap-Up The Supply Chain Challenge Volatility and Change is the New Normal INTERNAL FACTORS EXTERNAL FACTORS SERVICE & PERFORMANCE METRICS How does a change in inventory policy effect my service rates? How many shipments will be late? Am I at risk of hitting capacity constraints? Will this new schedule improve throughout? With Volatility and Change Come More Questions To Answer PRODUCT FLOW How much does it cost to serve each customer? Which ports should I be using? Should I consolidate my inbound through a cross-dock? TRANSPORTATION How many routes & assets do I need? What if I change delivery frequency? How can I reduce my empty miles? Can I combine inbound and outbound shipments? INVENTORY How much inventory do I need? How much does it cost to increase my service levels? Where should I stock each product? PRODUCTION FOOTPRINT When should I pre-build? Where should I make each product? Do I have the right balance of capacity? Should I be outsourcing production? NETWORK STRUCTURE Should I lease of build new sites? Who should source each customer? When do I need more capacity? How do I consolidate assets? PRODUCT DEMAND How are customers buying our products? How should I segment different customers and products? There is Seemingly No Limit to the Questions An Integrated Supply Chain Design Platform Enables Businesses To Visualize and Analyze the Current Supply Chain Operations Validate Potential Supply Chain Changes and Continuously Test New What-If Scenarios Optimize the Supply Chain for the Right Balance Between Cost, Service, Sustainability and Risk Rapidly Respond to Unplanned Disruptions, Market Fluctuations or New Business Strategies Supply Chain Design Drives Significant Cost Savings Making Your Supply Chain a Competitive Advantage 2015 University of Michigan Study SC Design COEs Impact Ajit Sharma, Ross School of Business < $ 1 Mn. $1 $10 Mn. $10 $50 Mn. $ 50 Mn.+ 2015 SummerCon Survey SC Design Project Impact 94 Respondents PriceSmart Case Study Price smart iuhguhsdf sdfiohsdoifhiodf Who is PriceSmart?

RDC Operation Local /Regional Vendors PriceSmart Modeling Approach Hybrid Model The PUSH Buyers push product through the system, given opportunities of scale & discounts from the suppliers & try to take into account required mix from the operation The PULL Stores demand what the customer demands, which are products that should be in the network in order to satisfy this demand Network Balance out the imbalances between the PUSH and PULL behaviors Spill Over Concept Excess product being pushed towards the Stores & Customers will incur in spill over to another facility that has the space and processes in place to handle these situations. As excess builds up, needs for new facilities arise. As Stores are filled in, the next facility available upstream will gain inventory Buyers Network Customers Push Pull Buyers Push Pull DC Stores RDC Spill Over Key Concepts Through the increase of frequency of reorder and the resupply being equal, we can evidence the key points for improvement by: Reduction in Cycle Stock overall Reduction of the probability of stocking out Increase in resupply frequency, aligned with ordering frequency makes for better decision making Biweekly Resupply Weekly Reorder Demand Upstream Stock 1125 Units 250 250 Biweekly Resupply Demand Consumption InTransit On Hand 250 500 375 Weekly Resupply Weekly Reorder Demand Upstream Stock 875 250 Units Club PKG DC or VDR Club PKG DC or VDR Inventory and Frequency Assume an operation with 1000 units of product being consumed per month, with 50% buffer stock policy in place Operational Approach to Product Flow Used modeling to test scenarios based on different buying behaviors Single Club Approach Single Club Approach + RDCs Regional Approach + RDCs Price Smarts Visibility Analysis Data Analysis: PSMT VDS Dashboard Identify Opportunities: Set Business Parameters Quantify Potential QWs: Extract/Summarize Data Test Your Findings: SCG Models Analyze Savings & Impacts The Full Picture Follow your plan towards Implementation DC Club VDR Test different What-ifs SCG Scenarios Make a Decision Build a Plan RDC After the potential Quick Wins are quantified and summarized, we are ready to test our findings in SCG First Step: Visibility Analysis Build initial Baseline model Optimize & copy optimal solution Run IO & Copy solution Select proper Inventory Policy to populate Simulate model with policies Record Key Metrics Replenishment Frequency Days of Inventory on Hand Reorder Point Reorder Quantity 2012 DC Club Second Step: Demand Analysis & Inventory Right-Sizing Objective: Determine the optimal locations within the actual network where Regional Distribution Centers should be located, considering the implications for both dry and temperature controlled products.
