Overall view of event logistics is crucial for Melbourne Cup Carnival

The Melbourne Cup is the race that stops a nation but, behind the scenes, supply chain management experts are far from stopping.

An overall view of the entire end-to-end supply chain with control over the entire management of the process for large scale events is imperative otherwise chaos erupts. We saw this unfold during an Olympic Games where there was no clear management of processes. Most supply chains are managed in an ongoing, sustainable way, however, supply chain management for large scale events operate entirely differently with rapid ramp up and ramp down phases, detailed master delivery schedules, ample availability for consumable goods, and lastly a rigorous plan for waste removal. The Melbourne Cup Carnival is no exception.

Lexian has developed proprietary event management software to manage the logistics for major sporting events.

The Australasian Supply Chain Institute (ASCI) and myself wish to invite those working in supply chain and logistics to a breakfast where Bruce Craig, from Llamasoft and myself will offer you the opportunity to:

·       Learn how these best practice companies are achieving competitive advantage by significantly improving in the areas of; cost, margin, customer service and risk.

·       Understand how they are implementing analytical centres of excellence to perform; network, product flow, production, cost-to-serve, multi echelon inventory optimisation and simulation.

·       Join a discussion on common supply chain problems

·       Run through the “Supply Chain Matrix Scorecard”

Imagine if you had a living, digital model of the end-to-end supply chain, enabling continuous improvement and innovation to rapidly and accurately answer the toughest ‘What-if’ questions and generate effective and clear data driven recommendations. The principles of Supply Chain Design are applicable to most businesses that have a supply chain. This presentation will provide members with sufficient information about Supply Chain Design so that they can determine the “fit” within their own business as well as the foundations of building a business case for action.
