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.

Cost: The sum of the applicable expenditures and charges directly or indirectly incurred in bringing an article to its existing condition and location

Cost Of Goods Sold (COGS): The direct expenses related to producing the goods sold by a business. The formula for calculating this will depend on what is being produced, but as an example this may include the cost of the raw materials (parts) and the amount of employee labor used in production.

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.

Operating Profit: Operating profit is the net income derived from a company's core operations. To put it another way, it is the amount of money that a company has left over after meeting its operating costs (gross profit) but before paying its taxes.

Pareto Analysis: Pareto analysis is a formal technique useful where many possible courses of action are competing for attention. In essence, the problem-solver estimates the benefit delivered by each action, then selects a number of the most effective actions that deliver a total benefit reasonably close to the maximal possible one.

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: Procurement is the process of finding and agreeing to terms, and acquiring goods, services, or works from an external source, often via a tendering or competitive bidding process. 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.

Revenue: In accounting, revenue is the income that a business has from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers. Revenue is also referred to as sales or turnover. Some companies receive revenue from interest, royalties, or other fees.

Strategic Sourcing: Strategic sourcing is an approach to supply chain management that formalizes the way information is gathered and used so an organization can use its consolidated purchasing power to find the best possible values in the marketplace and align its purchasing strategy to business goals.

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.

Supply Chain: A supply chain is a network between a company and its suppliers to produce and distribute a specific product to the final buyer. The supply chain also represents the steps it takes to get the product or service from its original state to the customer.

Supply Chain Management: In commerce, supply chain management, the management of the flow of goods and services, involves the movement and storage of raw materials, of work-in-process inventory, and of finished goods as well as end to end order fulfillment from point of origin to point of consumption.

Total Quality Management (TQM): Total quality management consists of organization-wide efforts to "install and make permanent climate where employees continuously improve their ability to provide on-demand products and services that customers will find of particular value."

Value Stream: a series of steps that occur to provide the product or service that their customers want or need

Value Stream Mapping (VSM): Value stream mapping (VSM) is defined as a lean tool that employs a flowchart documenting every step in the process. Many lean practitioners see VSM as a fundamental tool to identify waste, reduce process cycle times, and implement process improvement.

Vendor: A vendor is a person or business that supplies goods or services to a company. Another term for the vendor is the supplier. In many situations, a company presents the vendor with a purchase order stating the goods or services needed, the price, delivery date, and other terms.

Vendor Management Inventory (VMI): A supply chain agreement where the manufacturer or supplier takes control of the inventory management decisions for the seller or retailer.

Voluntary Inter-industry Commerce Standards (VICS): The VICS (Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Standards) Bill Of Lading (BOL) provides inventory-processing information through the supply chain to a shipper, carrier, and customer.
