Today we are experiencing a global supply
crisis with the delivering of products taking 2-3 times longer than they did
one year ago. Products that had a 6-10 week historical delivery pattern
are now taking 20-24 weeks to be delivered.
The primary cause often cited for the
global crisis is the current Covid-19 pandemic. There is no doubt that the Covid-19
pandemic may have instigated the issue, but I believe the problems may have
always been there but hidden just below the surface. As an FYI, for the most
part, experts believe that the current crisis will possibly prevail through mid
2023.
Action Required:
Please review the
video links provided below as the starting point to researching what you
think caused the current crisis and what do you suggest that we do about it,
both short and long term, to minimize the impact to the end customer or
possibly eliminate the problem re-surfacing in the future.
Leads/ideas that
may help in your research…..
·
Raw material shortages
particularly steel
·
Supplier capacity….if they had
available capacity before the pandemic by the problem now?
·
Manpower shortages
·
Shipping Congestion
·
North American trucking
situation
·
Lack of ocean-going cargo vessels
and shipping containers for the far east
·
Look at the problem from a
QCDDv view point.
Logistics play a large part of the transportation
of products whether made in North America or offshore, therefore anything that
we can do to minimize the impact of transportation is especially important to a
company’s bottom line – their profit!
Below are links to two video’s that:
(1)
shows the situation at the Los
Angeles Port of product arriving from overseas, and the challenges that they
face in receiving and moving product on to its final destination

(2)
How Amazon is dealing with
current supply chain issues, to minimize the impact to their customers.

Please cite any of your research sources
that that assists you in making your recommendations, including the two videos
listed above.
See suggested format below…….
I would suggest is a business report that
is clear and concise but should contain the following:
·
Executive Summary – include a
summary of the situation that provides your manager/director an overview to
understand the root cause(s) of the issue, and a summary what your key
recommendations.
·
Situational Analysis – what are
facts as you know them….just the facts, not the analysis or possible solutions
as that comes later.
·
List of problems/concerns and your
suggested countermeasures of how they may be fixed going forward.
– You should be
able to list 3-6 possible options with potential solutions
Unlike most
reports that you have done or college or university, length is not important –
you don’t need to fill the report with useless dialogue – keep the report as concise
and complete as you can but it still has to contain all the necessary elements to
build a convincing argument.
