Ordering, Shipping and Materials Management: A Process Improvement Partnership Case Study and Best Practices

Learn about a comprehensive assessment and process improvement exercise on the Total Cost of Ownership model between UPMC and Cook Medical.  Specific areas of focus included ordering, shipping and materials management. Within these areas, multiple supply chain activities were analyzed as potential cost drivers including: freight costs, package consolidation, data standards, inventory management, rush orders, custom device orders and more. As a result, changes were implemented to reduce the total cost of ownership. In this session, we will demonstrate the impact that this project has had on both organizations.
