Since the Holiday season is upon us, what better way to celebrate than with a top 10 list, which I hope will put everyone in a festive mood!
Here are 10 Reasons Why Santa Has the Best Supply Chain
#1 No ERP system, just a list. Now, he does do some risk assessment… using patented approved simulation. For example, what if Johnny is good this year?
#2 Air freight without the fuel costs. And a big zero on the carbon footprint
#3 No capacity issues, no union, no vacation, no breaks… work is play and play is work for elves.
#4 His forecast is always accurate. Let’s see that forecast!
#5 One currency for every country. Milk and cookies.
#6 No customer service issues. If a customer is rude, obnoxious or grumpy they get a rotten egg and a lump of coal and told to stick it where the mistletoe doesn’t grow.
#7 No labor costs… except for room and board.
#8 Free overnight delivery…on everything.
#9 No need for finance or Sarbanes Oxley, Saas70… everyone is honest at the North Pole.
#10 No inventory issues. The perfect Lean, JIT system ever.
Comment to let us know why you think Santa has the best supply chain!
From everyone at Kinaxis, and the Late Late Supply Chain Show, all the best to you and your families over the holidays.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
