Supply chain concepts  


Supply chain concepts

Supply chain management is an important process as you know, because an optimized supply chain results in lower costs and a much faster production cycle. In today's blog, we will learn in detail about the three root concepts of supply chain management.

1. System Concepts: it emphasizes interdependence not only between function within an organization and also among multiple organization that collectively deliver products and service to the customer for example those that Concept the supplier’s buyers from result in unintended losses and wastages.

A focus on efficiency and cost reduction at individual function level to exclusion of its impact on other function may lead to increased costs at another level within the organization, resulting in sub-optimized performance in the level of service provided to the customer beside lowering the overall value delivered to the end user.

For instance, companies-where production drive sales- may engage in large production runs to minimize set-up costs, without realizing the cost involved in carrying large inventories of finished goods that result from such an approach and which impact the profitability of the company.

Similarly, a failure to appreciate the inter-company interdependence can have adverse impact on the performance of the entire chain.

In situation where transporter linking manufacture and wholesaler choose to consolidate loads to utilize the vehicle carrying capacities to the maximum, and thereby save on transportation costs, may cause delays in replacement, resulting in loss of sale and revenue that may exceed the saving in transportation costs.

What matters therefore is not the functional-level performance or the link-level performance in the chain but the collective performance of the entire chain, which warrants identification and removal of both the intra and inter-company wastages and non-value added activities from the entire material flow.

2. Total cost concept: Flowing directly from the realization the businesses ought to be viewed as integrated systems an interconnected chains or networks involving multiple links, it has to be appreciated that value delivered to the customer can be maximized only if the total cost incurred by all the links in the chain or network serving the customer is minimized.

Once again we fin that function-level cost reduction or link-level cost minimization is of little consequence if the overall cost to the customer remains high, making the chain as a whole non-competitive the concept emphasizes the need for inter-company co-ordination,

co-operation, and collaboration in all activities from design and development to manufacturing and distribution to optimize the total cost, and thereby, maximize the value delivered to the customer.

3.Trade-Off Concept:  the ‘’trade-off’’ concept enjoins upon the decision makers to explore the possibilities of choosing among alternatives or combination of alternatives in fulfilling a supply chain objective to minimize cost.

Faster transportation through a more expensive mode may be acceptable if it helps lower inventories carried and increases responsiveness to a time sensitive customer.

Public warehouse vs privet warehouse 

Public warehouse vs privet warehouse

We need a warehouse to keep the goods during the shipping & delivery process. Now we get two options to choose Warehouse, First Public Warehouse and Second Private warehouse Both of these provide convenient storage solution, but you should use only those products which are better for your business and your budget.

Stay tuned with us to know more about Public warehouse and Private warehouse, and read it completely, you will understand which warehouse is going to be good for you.

To understand the difference between a public warehouse and a private warehouse, we must first know the benefits and convenience of each warehouse.

Benefits of Public Warehousing 

Public warehouse facilities will be cheaper than private warehousing. Public warehouse is an attractive option. Public warehouse does not require much capital investment, you can start with less capital.

Packing and assembly services can also be found in the public warehouse, from which the goods can be sent by ship or rail by packing and collecting the goods.

With convenient customer locations and multiplicity, the public warehouse often keeps reducing the cost of freighting its customers in high volumes. Whereby Public warehouse clients often benefit from Freight cost savings.

Public warehousing provides warehouse facilities of all sizes, from small businesses to large businesses that can benefit from them.

All these reasons of public warehouse prove beneficial for companies whose business is run annually and seasonally.

Public warehouse is considered to be a specialized business institution that provides the facility to store material to the general public for a fixed fee.

It is operated by an individual or a cooperative committee. It has to work under license from the government as per the laid down rules and regulations. The benefits of public warehouse are less expensive and more efficient and effective to achieve higher customer service levels

Often a company needs a large investment to build a private warehouse. You will have to invest in everything from making the right equipment for your warehouse to stocking it with the right equipment. You do not have to bother to do these things with the public warehouse.

The infrastructure already exists in the public warehouse, only you will need materials Handling equipment and staff.

Benefits of Private Warehouse

Private Warehousing facilities are generally more than a public warehouse, they provide abundant facilities to customers, meaning a large warehouse can be found at a low cost from a public warehouse, but facilities cannot be found as much as Private Warehouse. Provides.

We need a warehouse
according to our material such as: a cool warehouse for sensitive goods, and hazardous materials, and a special warehouse for perishable goods. Such a facility cannot be found in a public warehouse, such a facility can be found only in Private Warehousing.

There are a few reasons why Private Warehousing is always built as an attractive option.
The manufacturers of private warehouses are more trades and producers and are managed by them, so that they can exclusively store their own stock.

Private warehouses are known for better monitoring of the handling and storage of products required by the management from time to time,
Those who increase the performance of the warehouse such as: Suppose if a company builds its product by itself, it will remain controlled by itself, and there will be less possibility of error in it.

Similarly, if a producing company has its own warehouse, then it will be able to manage it well. And he will be able to design the warehouse looking at his company's product.

How to Choose the Right Warehousing Facility

Six Sigma Methodology

October 27, 2020

Six Sigma Methodology 

Six Sigma Methodology

Six Sigma has two methods DMAIC and DMADV, each with its own set of recommended procedures to be implemented for business transformation.
Six Sigma uses two different sets of methodology as lenses to examine and address complementary aspects of business processes.
Each method has its own data and tools, through which it can be used to improve business processes.

What is DMAIC? 

DMAIC is a data-driven approach that is used to improve existing customers or services, and also to improve customer satisfaction. DMAIC is used in a product manufacturing organization or any service delivery company.

 DMAIC has five steps

D - Define

M-take measures

A -Analyze

I - improve

C -control

What is DMADV?

DMADV is a part of Six Sigma design, DMADV is used to redesign the processes of product manufacturer or service delivery. 

Remember DMADV is employed when existing processes do not meet customer requirements, meaning DMADV is used to replace your existing processes, or even if your product or project needs to be developed DMADV Is required.

DMADV has five steps:




D- Design


Difference Between DMAIC and DMADV

DMAIC is used, or will be, when you are trying to improve or develop a process that already exists, meaning your product or If there is a need to improve or develop a little project.

DMADV is used when redesign is to redesign your product or project. By the way, the purpose of both the methods is the same, to solve the problem of your business in a complete way. 


The six Sigma process begins with a customer-centric approach.

stage 1: Business problem is defined from the customer's point of view.
stage 2: The target has been set. What do you want to achieve What resources will you use to achieve the goal?

stage 3: map the process. Together with stakeholders verify whether you are on the right track.


MEASURE- In this, you need the data of the instruments used to make measurements, and also need to know the answers to some questions. How can we improve? How can we determine this?
stage 1: Measure your problem data with data on how to improve.
stage 2: Evaluate the data system to be improved, then you will know whether it can help you achieve your result or not?


This is the process to find the affected Variable, which enables us to analyze.
stage1: 100 percent Determine if your process is efficient and effective, can the process help you achieve what you want?

stage 2: Set your goals. For example, reduce defective items by 20%.

stage 3: Identify differences using your old data.


This process examines how the effect of your old data changes to the new data, this stage is where you identify how you can improve the process by implementing it.

Stage 1: identify possible causes.
Stage 2: Discover the relationship between Variable.


In this final stage, you determine whether the performance and purpose identified in the previous stage are implemented well, and whether the designed improvements are sustainable.

stage 1:
Validate the measurement system used.

stage 2: establish process capability. Whether the goal is being met or not? For example, is the goal of reducing defective items up to 20 percent achievable?

stage 3: Once the previous stage is satisfied, implement the process.

Six sigma technique 

The Six sigma method also uses a mixture of Proven qualification and quantitative techniques to achieve desired results.

A : Brainstorming 
B : Root cause analysis
C : Voice of the customer
D: The 5s system
E: Kaizen
F: Benchmarking
G: Poka -Yoka / Mistake proofing
H: Value Strem Maping


Brainstorming is an important process of any problem solving method and is often used in the "improvement" phase of the DMAIC method.

Before starting any tool, it must be a necessary process. Create a group and brainstorm and sit with everyone and creatively raise the problem and then implement it.

Root Cause Analysis/The 5 Whys 

This technique helps to get to the root of the problems under consideration, and is used in the "analysis" phase of the DMAIC cycle.

5 Why 

5why In this technique, the question of "why" is asked repeatedly, eventually leading to the main issue. Although "five" is a rule of thumb, the actual number of questions can be more or less, whatever it takes to get clarity.

Voice of the Customer 

It is a process used to capture the "voice of the customer" or the customer's response through internal or external means. The aim of technology is to provide the best products and services to the customer.

It captures the changing needs of the customer in direct and indirect ways. The voice of the customer technique is used in the "Defined" phase, usually to address the problem.

The 5S System 

The purpose of the 5S system is to remove waste and remove obstacles from unskilled equipment, equipment, or resources in the workplace. The five stages used are ciri (sort), citan (set in order), ciso (shine), csetsu (standardized), and shitsuke (susten). The 5S system will be known to many of you and we have also written a blog.

Kaizen (Continuous Improvement) 

Kaizen technology is a powerful strategy, which powers a continuous engine to improve business. It makes it a practice to continuously monitor, identify and implement reforms.

This is a particularly useful practice for the manufacturing sector. Ensures collective and ongoing improvement, and helps make immediate changes.

Poka-yoke (Mistake Proofing) 

The name of this technique comes from Japanese phrases, meaning "to avoid errors," and prevents the possibility of mistakes being made.
In the poka-yoke technique, employees overcome disabilities and human errors during the manufacturing process.

What is a Store?

October 26, 2020

What is a Store?

What is a Store?

The definition of Store for different Business may be different, and its responsibilities can be according to store and product. But here we are talking about the supply chain Stores:

 Store is a place where additional goods are kept, which can be used when needed. And items are also stored in case of problems, such as: Damage, Wrong received, Discrepancy etc. All these are also a part of the store.

Store management "takes care of proper and improper materials when receiving materials, such as: Damage, Wrong, rusty Etc. and works immediately to protect them in the Store, and choosing the right materials and the right place to place them in the right quantity. And that too at a low cost, store management is also responsible for all this.

Purpose of the store In the chain of internal customers and chain of suppliers, the store has many internal customers. Customers are expected to deliver good quality and low-cost delivery from every Suppliers as usual.

The store also has to fulfill its customer's expectations. All of these are activities with responsibility and process that people carry out in the work of the Store.

The aim of the store is to minimize the cost on objective materials, thereby reducing the cost of production.

Maintaining a reasonable price for content so that user departments can get good service. The store does the major work of establishing good coordination with all other departments. In the next blog we'll talk more on this, Thanks

Warehouse Equipment

Warehouse Equipment

Warehouse Equipment - No matter how good manpower you may have to streamline your warehouse operations, it is the equipment itself that plays a very important role in helping humans to complete a task efficiently.

The processes and approaches done inside the warehouse give results for your business. This is the same principle not only in the warehouse but also for every business in the world.

If we list the equipment and machinery used in warehouses, then we will be very long but we have taken broadly, which we need more.
Even today many warehouses or businesses are unaware of the methods and equipment they need. To increase the speed and efficiency and productivity of materials management in any warehouse or business, then you should have proper equipment.

Many challenges are being seen in the modern warehouse. Such challenges not only affect the running of the warehouse, but also negatively affect production and distribution, if you do not have the appropriate equipment.

Getting or keeping the right equipment for the warehouse will not only reduce the flow of goods through each process area, but will also reduce the possibility of injuries and product damage.

The material handling equipment must conform to the size of the facility warehouse and material. Make sure what equipment is really needed in your warehouse or business.

We will discuss some special and very important equipment of the warehouse so that you do not have any kind of rage, you can see it according to your needs.

Warehouse Material handling equipment

Choosing the wrong equipment can put employees at risk. Therefore its safety should always be your top priority. If you want to optimize your equipment area and workflow, you need quality warehouse equipment to move equipment and cargo.

Warehouse security is also becoming a major issue, choosing the right equipment can make your process more efficient, customizable and qualified and secure, as well as less time consuming for workers. Let us know about the material handling equipment.

1. HPT- Hand pallet Truck- One of the most used equipment in any industry includes - Hand pallet truck - This allows you to easily move small and large cargo from one place to another. As effective methods of handling various heavy objects, they are used:

2. Battery stacker - used to hold items at a height, it is a battery operated device. It is used for heavy duty racking system

3. Forklifts - There are very few people who would not know forklifts, which is also a tool used in almost all types of warehouses like HPT. Forklifts come in many sizes such as: high capacity, weight capacity etc.
However large warehouse corridors are required to bend forklifts.

4. Reach trucks - are the most common equipment used in large warehouses and in heavy duty racking system wall racks, mainly because they have the advantage of working in narrow streets and elevations of up to 14 meters in height. Reach trucks are battery-electric equipment.
Reach trucks include features such as turret trucks, side loaders, order pickers, cranes, and pallet jacks. It is important that you find the best truck to suit your needs.

5. Hydra crane- is used in handling huge and heavy materials. Hydra machines can carry and carry loads of almost any material used in a warehouse.

Peaking Packing Equipment - Packing equipment is very important for any warehouse, peaking packing equipment plays an important role in packing shipping goods faster and helping to increase productivity.

The right packing equipment can reduce labor costs, and provide stability in the process. In addition, packing equipment also improves inventory control by eliminating the possibility of product isolation, saving time in inventory count.

Warehouse Picking Packing Equipment:

BOPT-battery operated pallet truck - is included for loading / unloading and order picking. And they are easy to use, and they are also very fast and powerful. This allows the material to be transported and transported very fast, and can be used by any person, increasing the efficiency of peaking.

Apart from this, some equipment used in peaking packing is given below which is important.
for example :

1. Industrial scales
2. Strapping and banding equipment
3. Stretch Wrap Machines
4. Sealing machine or band sealer machine


As you know, it is important to have equipment in the warehouse, but it is more important that you are handling it, and how much you are looking after it, before and after you buy the equipment. In this, information should be collected, why the equipment is needed, who will handle the equipment, the correct parking place for the equipment is also necessary. How much profit our business is going to make. Many tools have been left in this blog, you will talk about it further. 

Thank you - and my blog is becoming useful for you, so please tell us by commenting.

Distribution center vs Warehouse

October 23, 2020

Distribution center vs Warehouse


Distribution center vs Warehouse

Some people want to understand the difference between its Warehouse and Distribution center because of its confusion. These both work for the supply chain and what the supply chain wants is to deliver the right goods, the right price, at the right place and at the right time.

Due to the similar appearance of warehouses and distribution centers, many people will not be clear about the difference between them, and even in the logistics industry the two will not be different for anyone. Even till a few months ago, we also thought that this name is two, but there is no difference between them. 

Then I got to know about it and we reached a distribution center and then I came to know that there is a lot of difference between the warehouse and the distribution center, even though they look the same from outside, but there is a lot of difference in internal work. There are responsibilities to complete each work which is made up of different technical and criteria.

As many of you would be aware that the already existing traditional warehouses are no longer able to meet the supply chain demand. However, many warehouses are being upgraded.

Let us know what is the difference between a distribution center and a warehouse

Typically, warehouses are used to store goods, while many additional services are provided from distribution centers such as: order fulfillment, cross-docking, etc. Distribution center products typically have a much faster expiration period than warehouse. Basically, the process speed of the distribution center works faster in a manifold than in a warehouse.

The main function of a warehouse is to store goods efficiently
, while the main function of a distribution center is to meet customer demands. Typically, orders from warehouses and retail are sent by distribution centers, not from the main warehouse. Again, the warehouse usually does not accept external customers, while the distribution center accepts orders from external customers.

The distribution center mechanism is more complex than that of a warehouse in general. Therefore, the distribution center is equipped with the latest technology to manage the ordering process, warehouse management, transportation management and others.

There are differences between a warehouse and a distribution center and distribution centers keep updating over time. However, if you say that the warehouse is no longer needed, then you are completely wrong. There will be a need for a warehouse, such as seasonal products and according to seasonal demand you will need to stock your items.

There is a clear distinction between a warehouse and a distribution center. If you want to build a warehouse or distribution center, it is a good idea to build it in a strategic industrial area. Let's understand this in a little detail

What is a warehouse?

By the way, you must know what a warehouse is, and we have given many blogs about it, but to understand its difference, let us look at it once more. "Warehouse is a commercial building which means a big building Which are used to hold goods, and warehouse to store and handle goods properly using warehouse scientific methods. They are mainly used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers and transportation businesses. Let's go. Warehouses are usually used for storage only.

The warehouse has a loading dock for loading and unloading goods, that is, you can run the warehouse with very little equipment. Warehouse can be anywhere and it should be on the side of the buster road.

What is a distribution center?

A distribution center is a special building designed to store products for everything from retailers to wholesalers, which can be distributed elsewhere or directly to customers. Meaning you can buy goods online or offline from here.

Distribution centers are an integral par
t of the order fulfillment process, especially for online retailers and e-commerce businesses. The normal route of transportation is usually as follows: a retailer sends the product to a distribution center, and then the product is shipped to the consumer customer. 

Because the products move in and out at high speeds, distribution centers are often located in areas where transport facilities are available, such as near major roadways and highways to more efficiently transport and move goods. Many distribution centers are part of a larger network of distributors, set up to serve a larger area.


A warehouse is a storage facility intended to store goods for a long period of time, if compared briefly. And a distribution center is in the form of a warehouse with full fulfillment services and many other benefits. 
In a technology era that is impacting every aspect of normal life, online shopping is creating demand for accessibility and speedy delivery to sustain businesses - such as: 2-day shipping from Amazon or Flipkart Can see Businesses that get their products faster and have streamlined their supply chain management.  

Unlike warehouses, distribution centers are multifunctional, high-energy operations that provide fulfillment services, although the way to obtain those services varies from building construction. Because of that, they are sometimes called "fulfillment stores". They double as a warehouse or can be a warehouse component, although they easily combine with a separate warehouse if they do not have that capability. 

Stocks are placed according to demand in the distribution centers and those goods are shipped elsewhere when the demand is out, in the distribution centers things always work very fast inside a place such as when an order is placed The latter is how businesses can be offered quicker shipping, which also has a hand in improving customer satisfaction and recognition. 

Warehouse's distribution centers are equipped with an abundance of storage technology. For the most part, the system of operation of a distribution center is virtually paperless, as everything can be obtained digitally with the help of computer and handheld technology. Reducing paper records not only accelerates the filing process, but also the amount of space previously required to store boxes of paper records that the company needed to keep. Some distribution centers have more automation than others, and use technology such as conveyor belts, automatic sorting, weighing, and even self-operating ankle boarding. 

Distribution centers also allow greater tracking and transport transparency to the customer and business owner to provide better customer service. Such as: With the use of radio-frequency identification (RFID), GPS, Universal Freight Operating System (UFOS), other technologies or some combination of them, companies are able to track products with great accuracy. Customers and business owners can view their products from the moment they leave the manufacturing plant to successful delivery to the final owner of the product.
