ABSTRACT

The article shows the relevance of reliable control and monitoring of processes in re-tail supply chains. We consider terminological aspects, general problems and the benefits of effective supply chain monitoring (SCMo). The article analyzes the main drivers of con-trol and monitoring of retail supply chains. The evolution of control systems and monitoring of operations in supply chains based on the concept / methodology of the Supply Chain Con-trol Tower (SCCT) is considered. It is shown that from a historical perspective, the concept of SCCT has passed through four stages (generations): from version SCCT 1.0 to SCCT 4.0. Each generation of the Control Tower is described in detail from the standpoint of functio-nality, advantages, limitations, and software and technological implementation. In terms of methodology, the importance of ensuring traceability and end-to-end (Е2Е) visibility of the supply chain for monitoring retail supply chains has been proved. The article analyzes sig-nificant factors affecting the traceability of the supply chain, as well as characteristics, technical standards and cloud technologies. The visibility of the supply chain of a chain retail operator is illustrated by the example of the cloud platform of the companies Nexus GT and Infor.

ABSTRACT

 This article discusses perspectives of the use of monitoring systems in the enterprises of the manufacturing sector of logistics. The case for the implementation of such systems on real production facilities was considered. The economic efficiency of using monitoring systems was analyzed. For this, three scenarios were created under which it is possible to make mistakes when performing the business process of determining the need for inventory items. The first of them described a situation in which the time of error detection was 1 day; the second scenario suggested an increase in the time of failure to 2 days; scenario 3 described the use of the real-time monitoring system and described situation in which failure in the supply chain caused by shortage of goods was determined instantly. After that, these scenarios were analyzed on the basis of existing contract for production of certain number of finished products. It is shown that the monitoring system can significantly reduce batch production time due to a significant reduction in the probability of making mistakes. Finally, it was shown how the implementation of monitoring and automation system for a number of tasks affects the efficiency of business processes.

ABSTRACT

This article determines the system of rating branches for a logistics company based on key performance indicators.

The purpose of rating is to increase the efficiency of branches for a logistics company.

The rating is used as a comparative performance evaluation of the effectiveness of branch units. The ranking is considered through a point system and based on the level of key performance indicators.

The rating is aimed to solve the following problems:

-        to develop measures to meet the targets;

-        to use the best practices of some branches;

-        to improve the execution of key performance indicators alongside with planning system improvement;

-        to develop technologies aimed at reducing costs by making optimal decisions;

-        to improve the quality of service;

-        to motivate and create a competitive environment between branches.

The rating determines both quantitative and qualitative comparative evaluation in order to implement key performance indicator system. Qualitative assessment takes into account priority indicators and the efforts of the branches in their implementation.

ABSTRACT

 Transport efficiency assessment today is an important issue of modern logistics management. According to the summarizing of different literature sources, transportation occupies the biggest part of total logistics costs.  The challenge of designing efficiency transportation indices deserves special attention. Hereby some questions still need consideration, such as what an assessment system should look like? What issues should be considered while conducting analysis of transportation activity? Is there any complex of assessment indices that could be proposed? The article attempts to answer all these and other questions of logistics management based on works of Russian and foreign researchers. The article will be useful for scientists and specialists dealing with efficiency assessment issues

ABSTRACT

There is no unambiguous answer to what is the driver for modern logistics. According to practicing logisticians, optimal solutions can be found only during the process of physical distribution. From the point of view of academic science, all optimization issues in logistics are determined at the stage of theoretical background and project design.  Obviously, a more complex approach to solve the problem of increasing competitiveness by means of efficient supply chain management can be found only as a result of synergy between both theoretical research and practical experience. This statement is mostly applicable to a situation when the market is full of goods, and the need for optimizing procedures is recognized not only on the level of logistics, but on the level of all current operations in the national and world economy as well.

The peculiarity of the modern stage of logistics development is in rapid IT implementation of all distribution processes, from the point of origin to the final consumer. This is due to increased manufacturing scale and world trading volume (which has exceeded 8% this year, according to WTO). Hereby it’s crucial to realize that behind each sophisticated software there is a whole complex of analytical models and methods. That is why to be competitive, enterprises should pay special attention to developing analytical approaches to face logistics business challenges.

ABSTRACT

The article considers the use of the apparatus of stochastic Petri networks during supply chain analysis. The main object of the analysis is the storage and production modules and their interaction with other elements of the system. First, the logistical system under consideration was represented in the form of a stochastic Petri network, then two models of one system with different initial conditions were created with the purpose of their behavior analysis and comparison. Analysis of the results of the models was carried out by two methods: the construction of an analytical model of the Petri net; simulation of the model work during a specified period. In addition, the paper deals with the problem of exponential explosion; the dependence of the number of the system possible conditions on the change of its parameters is shown. As a result, it was shown how the behavior of the system depends on the change in the product delivery time and what period is critical for the production deficit.

ABSTRACT

Nowadays the development of retail chain stores format takes place. Some companies go own way, while others use benchmarking but all of them are interested in profitability maximization on condition that the overstock and out-of-stock levels are optimal. In the article the SCM project results are discussed. It is shown that it helped to reduce stock level by several times in a big federal retail company. After the successful solution of the problem there was detected the aberrant behavior of one of the «Perfect Order» indicator elements. It is the «Quality of the order implementation». This has brought to the extemporaneous short-run losses. In the article the alternative to this indicator is proposed and the realization is demonstrated.

ABSTRACT

In the article the analytical review of companies' controlling system condition investigation made by Russian specialists is pre
sented. The controlling functions systematization is offered, the analysis of current condition, problems and tendencies in companies' logistic controlling development is made.The logistics instruments and logistic controlling algorithm in supply chain management are reviewed.
Logistic controlling is a key function in logistic management. By the results of the research made by company "Shell", the average corporate life is about 20 years. Only some corporations were succeeded to exist for 40-50 years. This analysis allows for the conclusion that big corporations' long standing was provided by the efficient planning and controlling system implementation. It is obvious that controlling implementation is a critical task. Its solution will help to improve logistic systems efficiency.

Meanwhile, the methods which are presented in scientific publications are fragmentary and incomplete, while the existing analytical tools which are used in logistic systems controlling evaluation needs the revision and the development. One of the promising solutions to the described problem is the methodology development which includes relevant models and methods for logistic controlling formation and evaluation, analysis tools and management methods.

The model of continious rolling planning, management decisions execution control and record, which summarizes modern methodological approaches and solutions connected with supply chains and production controlling, is presented in the article. The main factors of controlling system development and the classification of supply chain management performance indicators in the process of controlling system evaluation are described. The algorithm for logistic controlling and management solutions efficiency improvement in logistic systems is presented.

ABSTRACT

A manufacturing company frequently plays a role of forming unit in a supply chain. The quality of manufacturer’s logistic system administration is an important impact factor for both company’s and supply chain’s performance and competitiveness. This article deals with the topical problem which consists in evaluation of logistic system administration efficiency in a focus company’s supply chain. The methodology for solving this problem, which was developed by the author, is presented. It includes 3 groups of indexes: strategic, which are presented in terms of Balanced Scorecard (BSC); operational, which estimate logistic system administration quality and integrated, which are calculated following changes in crucial for this system (subsystem) indexes’ rate of growth.
The quantitative evaluation of such logistic system’s characteristics, as organization, rhythmicality, synchrony and stability, which are used in the process of logistic system operational management as well as integrated indexes, which are offered by the author, are of academic interest. These indexes allow estimating the impact of the logistic system administration quality on a focus company’s and supply chain’s efficiency.
