ABSTRACT

It is shown that the concept of «Digital Twin» is becoming an increasingly popular method of solving key problems in supply chain management, in particular, when monitoring logistics business processes. A detailed analysis of literary sources and Internet resources on the subject of digital twins is carried out. The basic terminology, the terms of «Digital Twin» and of similar concepts, such as «digital footprint», «digital shadow», «digital thread», are given. The basic properties (characteristics) of digital twins and the advantages obtained by using this concept in supply chains are considered. The methodological aspects of the Digital Twin concept are analyzed both in the academic environment and in the context of the practice of large companies.
It is shown that the problem of monitoring consumer goods can be effectively solved using digital counterparts of the FMCG sector supply chains.
The main variants of the Supply Chain Digital Twin «design» are presented. An FMCG supply chain monitoring system using convergence of digital twins of products and processes in the chain is proposed. An example of the construction of a monitoring system in the supply chain of GHIOTTONE consumer goods using the digital counterparts of the main processes represented by the SCOR model is considered.

ABSTRACT

The article is devoted to actual problems of digitalization in the network retail industry. The role of supply chain management (SCM) in network retail is shown, and attention is focused on key trends in SCM, many of which are associated with the digital transformation of supply chains. The best practices in the field of digitalization of supply chains of industrial and commercial enterprises are analyzed. In particular, the article considers the experience of digital transformations of large world corporations supply chains, such as HP and Nokia, as well as the analytical reports of the leading consultants in SCM companies Gartner, Deloitte and Accenture on digitalization of enterprises in various sectors of the economy.

Based on the analysis, key trends in retail digitalization were identified and methodological approaches to the transformation of a conventional chain retailer's supply chain into digital were identified. The main digital technologies used today in Russia by network retail operators are identified.

A methodological approach to the digital transformation of the supply chain of a network retailer based on process (SCOR) modeling is proposed. Using the example of the largest network retailers of the Russian Federation, Magnit, X5 Retail Group, and M. Video companies, a SCOR model of a typical supply chain of a retail chain enterprise is constructed, based on which a possible list of digital technologies, systems and devices corresponding to each process in determined models.

ABSTRACT

The task of diagnostics of supply chain processes with the purpose to determine reserves and prospects of efficiency increase is the most time-consuming stage of strategic planning requiring accumulation and systematization of large amount of diverse information. Alongside with this, there are not many complex methods that could allow to implement the strategic planning cycle providing at the same time objective conclusions. One of these methods is the diagnostics of supply chain processes using supply chain operations reference model (SCOR model). The article provides analysis of publications devoted to problems when using SCOR; shows the main problems of the method interpretation and its application peculiarities. Also, the article suggests a procedure of supply chain processes diagnostics with SCOR model; the stages of this procedure are supported with an example. The article reveals that consistent implementation of the described stages allows to significantly simplify the procedure of supply chains strategic analysis providing at the same time consistency and reasonability of the decisions taken.

ABSTRACT

This article is a continuation of the series of articles devoted to the creation of industry-specific practical methodology of supply chain planning of industrial enterprises (case of iron and steel complexes).

The article studies the process of tactical supply chains planning of metallurgical companies. Based on the analysis of SCOR and GSCF processes, the following is proposed: improved process of tactical supply chains planning; the algorithm of optimal balancing of supply and demand in supply chains of industrial enterprises determined on the basis of the interactive layer-by-layer optimization method allowing to reserve logistic capacities for priority orders and to carry out the optimal distribution of the remaining capacities between other orders.

Scientific survey is based on fundamental and applied developments of domestic and foreign scientists in the field of economic theory, management theory, logistics theory and supply chain management, methods of mathematical modeling, business process modeling methodology, system analysis, operations research and expert evaluation methods.

As a result, the study reveals the shortcomings of tactical supply chain planning description in SCOR and GSCF; and proposes an improved process and method of tactical planning.

ABSTRACT

This article is a continuation of the series of articles devoted to the creation of industry-specific practical methodology of supply chain planning of industrial enterprises (on the example of iron and steel complexes).

The article presents the results of a survey of the process of operational planning of supply chains for metallurgical enterprises. Based on the analysis of the processes of SCOR and GSCF the following is proposed: an improved operational planning process of supply chains; the method based on the organization process of independent planning of the various supply chain stages in parallel which allows to avoid the situation of unintentional and irrevocable removal of proposals of different planners; a special synchronization algorithm for the plans of various planners. The paper examines the issues of sustainability and risks of the plans.

Scientific survey is based on fundamental and applied developments of domestic and foreign scientists in the field of economic theory, management theory, logistics theory and supply chain management, methods of mathematical modeling, business process modeling methodology, system analysis, operations research and expert evaluation methods.

The study results reveal deficiencies of the description of the operational planning of the supply chain in SCOR and GSCF; suggests an improved process and method of operational planning. In conclusion, an example of successful implementation of the developed approach at TimkenSteel is given.

ABSTRACT

The article provides an overview of the current state of the steel industry in the world and in Russia in particular. It was noted that over the past decade the supply chain leading steelmakers have gone through a series of transformations that have radically changed the requirements for their management. A study of the evolution of supply chains of ferrous metallurgy companies are provided, analysis of the factors that demonstrate large-scale shift in the global steel markets is presented. The paper examines the structure of a typical supply chain of a ferrous metallurgy company. The generalized model of the supply chain, including mining and metallurgical complexes based on the upgraded SCOR notation is proposed.
Increase in attention to the creation and development of partnerships/strategic alliances between players of metallurgical market and the joint efforts of customers and producers to stimulate growth and innovation opportunities is highlighted. The main features of metallurgical production are analyzed in terms of their planning: the main bottleneck of production, production cycle, volatility of metallurgical processes, production campaigns. The analysis of the key challenges for the steel companies for the coming years are presented: the excess of supply over demand, a large amount of excess capacity. The following areas of improvement are proposed: cost minimization, differentiated service for customers, standardization and transparency of processes and operations in the supply chains, the development of new technological products, reducing emissions. The appropriate improvement tools are proposed: methodology change based on the principles and processes of Supply Chain Management as well as IT tools to support planning of supply chains of steelmakers – Advanced Planning and Scheduling systems for Metals. On the basis of practical experience estimates of planning processes organization impact in accordance with best practices and appropriate information support to key performance indicators of companies are provided.

ABSTRACT

Modern technologies allow to put the question of changing approaches to analysis of the company, instead of applying the traditional, highly simplified technicks of modern mathematics. To do this, you must change the point of view of the economy as a set of static methods of planning and analysis, transforming it into a system of mathematical modeling. This article shows the potential willingness of controlling and management accounting and related techniques to this transformation.
