SCRt CIWG - Global Sourcing

SIRF Roundtables presents
Supply Chain Roundtable
Common Interest Workgroup
Global Sourcing
Host to be advised
SIRF Roundtables in Queensland currently comprises in excess of 40 progressive organisations that are willing to network and share their best practices in a peer to peer learning environment, specialising in Operational Excellence and Industrial Maintenance.

‘Common Interest Work Group’ (CIWG) events are for technical specialists looking to discuss with peers, specific topics they are working on, in and around their field of excellence.
Global sourcing often aims to exploit global efficiencies in the delivery of a product or service. These efficiencies include low cost skilled labour, low cost raw material and other economic factors like tax breaks and low trade tariffs.

The global sourcing of goods and services has advantages and disadvantages that can go beyond low cost. Some advantages of global sourcing include: learning how to do business in a potential market, tapping into skills or resources unavailable domestically, developing alternate supplier/vendor sources to stimulate competition, and increasing total supply capacity.

Some key disadvantages can include: hidden costs associated with different cultures and time zones, exposure to financial and political risks, increased risk of the loss of intellectual property, and increased monitoring costs relative to domestic supply.

For manufactured goods, some key disadvantages include long lead times, the risk of port shutdowns interrupting supply, and the difficulty of monitoring product quality.

If you buy finished products, raw material, product parts or services from outside Australia then come along and discuss your challenges and strategies with other likeminded Supply Chain professionals.
