Ultriva Shares Emerson Supply Chain Best Practice Lean Solutions

March 13 02:02 2015

Emerson is a large corporation that deals in many areas of business. The company provides other businesses with technology, software, and advice as well as providing household consumers with appliance products for their home. Emerson supplies other organizations and are embedded deeply in a supply chain themselves. Emerson gives supply chain advice and expertise to other companies, so naturally their own supply chain is top-notch. Emerson began using a Collaborative Supply Portal system which automates inventory, order, and shipping processes. Each piece of inventory has a barcode so that the system is able to be updated each time any action is taken. The system has helped Emerson run lean business practices. 

Forecast Errors, a weekly e-newsletter, sponsored by Ultriva, Inc. shared several of the methods used by Emerson. The newsletter explores forecast errors as the difference between the actual and predicted value. In the current issue, Forecast Errors argued that what separates best-in-class companies from those that struggle with accuracy is how they root out (and learn from) forecasting errors.

A forecast error is the difference between the actual and predicted value. The consequences are expensive inefficiencies that can be resolved with lean manufacturing technology.
