What to buy, When to buy & Where From


Understanding What to Buy, When to Buy & Where From

Procurement planners struggle every day with supplier constraints, perpetually changing material requirement plans and logistic issues.  In addition to these challenges, planners are facing static constraints such as order/order line minimum, incremental quantities and values, ordering, shipping, and receiving calendars coupled with an ever-present pressure to reduce costs.  While the supply chain organization directly controls 70-85% of the cost of goods manufactured within an organization and commodity price volatility at a record high, how can a procurement planner navigate the constraints in a profitable manner?
