Purchasing and Procurement

Purchasing and Procurement people need information “demand data” to start the planning. Do we build or Buy? They also need product information to add items to stock, produce purchase orders, verify and process receipts. These people rely on demand from Sales and Marketing as well as Logistics functions. They also need all the information contained in the Standard Item Record (SIR) so they can provide the information to the various functional areas that need it.

Each Function within a specific company can be optimized to increase overall company performance. BUT supply chain improvements require a blending of activities. Inside AND then Outside collaboration and that requires knowledge for three kinds of people:

  • Those being asked to comply with the standards who need to know what they are.

  • Those using standards who want to leverage them with best practices for improvements.

  • Those solving problems who need to know what standards and best practices apply.

Information is presented in context divided into:

  • Background to help with general understanding

  • Topics including:

    • Solutions – Understanding the problem and implementation

    • Foundation – Referencing standards and technology

    • Resources – for further knowledge
