Integral Logistics Management — Operations Management and Supply Chain Management Within and Across Companies

2.1 Ownership and Trade in a Global Supply Chain

Intended learning outcomes: Present the concept of the make-or-buy decision in detail. Explain the value content requirements and tariff-orientation in a global supply chain. Describe the total cost of ownership in a global supply chain.


Figure 2.1.0.1 shows a possible strategic process for fundamental designing of the supply chain. Here we will not discuss the macro-environment analysis (see also Section 10.4.3), the development of product and market strategy, competitive analysis and the subsequent phase of product design in R&D. For the requirements analysis, a demand forecast for each product and market (see Chapter 10) as well as a rough-cut planning of the type and amount of the necessary resources to meet the demand are worked out (section 5.2).

Fig. 2.1.0.1        Strategic process of designing the supply chain.

Supply chain design is concerned with what organizational units will be responsible for meeting the demand, and what factors in effective and efficient value adding must already at this point be taken into consideration in the case of both the make and the buy process.
