The role of Procurement is changing.  Doing what you’ve always done, even if you do it well, is no longer acceptable.  You need to transform rather than simply improve practices.  That means adopting practices with suppliers that make both of you winners/leaders in your respective environments.   


Your Benefits of Attending:

  • Understand the principles of lean practices and how to apply them to your procurement process.
  • Learn how to have your suppliers reduce lead time and setup.  Understand why this is so significant.
  • Gain insight into developing trust with suppliers and why that is so critical.
  • Understand 5S / Kaizen and how to use them effectively.

Join Mike Gozzo and start implementing lean practices to improve your procurement process.

Inventory: A company's inventory typically involves goods in three stages of production: raw goods, in-progress goods, and finished goods that are ready for sale. Inventory or stock refers to the goods and materials that a business holds for the ultimate goal of resale, production or utilization.

Lead Time: The number of days from when a company places an order for supplies, to when those items arrive.

Process Mapping: Process mapping is the graphical representation with illustrative descriptions. Process maps provide insight into a process, help teams brainstorm ideas for process improvement, increase communication and provide process documentation. Process mapping will identify bottlenecks, repetition, and delays. Business process mapping refers to activities involved in defining what a business entity does, who is responsible, to what standard a business process should be completed, and how the success of a business process can be determined.

Procurement is used to ensure the buyer receives goods, services, or works at the best possible price when aspects such as quality, quantity, time, and location are compared.

Product Family: A group of variants passing through similar processing steps that use common equipment.

Pull System: A lean manufacturing strategy used to reduce waste in the production process.

Push System: Production happens based on demand forecast.

Supplier: A supplier is an entity that supplies goods and services to another organization. A supplier is usually a manufacturer or a distributor. A distributor buys goods from multiple manufacturers and sells them to its customers. Similar Terms. A supplier is also known as a vendor.

Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) : Supplier relationship management is the discipline of strategically planning for, and managing, all interactions with third-party organizations that supply goods and/or services to an organization The objective of SRM is to maximize the value of those interactions.
