In the logistics space, there are countless opportunities for cost savings. Today’s leaders have access to technology and processes that can help create a new, leaner supply chain. And even though there are current and future budget challenges, these challenges must be viewed as an opportunity to reset the rate of spending and make better use of taxpayer dollars.
In our last blog, we discussed how organizations can leverage logistics data. In this post, we’ll shed some light on how organizations can ensure that these changes are sustained and can be designed to evolve with ever-changing needs and new technologies. At the end of the day, this sustainability is crucial if organizations are to secure and sustain value in the long run.
In our last post we talked about visibility and how better data capture tools can significantly help an organization see the current status of their entire supply chain. But, once this data is captured, how can organizations better leverage it?
Before an organization can approach any logistical challenge, they must first step back and take a big picture look to see everything that is going on in day to day operations—and they can do this by gathering data.
As we’ve discussed in past blog posts, today’s economic climate calls for smarter management of government spending. As echoed in this year’s State of the Union, the current rate of government spending is untenable. Our nation has amassed a debilitating fiscal deficit, and taxpayers are demanding greater accountability from legislators. In order to address this crisis, government agencies must begin to employ cost take-out measures.
In the past few posts, you’ve read a lot about the importance of asset management, why the Department of Defense (DoD) needs to consolidate their asset management programs, some examples of how this could help DoD, and lastly, a discussion on the format of an effective asset management approach and the importance of governance. Now, we’ll tell you a bit about how a standardized asset management system has helped other public sector organizations cut costs.
Today there are many asset management programs across the Department of Defense (DoD) that address a wide range of inventory, assets, and property. In this blog, we’ll offer suggestions on how DoD could consolidate asset management by aggregating these disparate systems and enabling preventive, predictive, routine, and unplanned maintenance is performed in a consistent and transparent manner across services and agencies.
The task is huge: The Department of Defense (DoD) aims to reduce spending by $150 billion over the next five years. While there is no silver bullet approach to meet this goal, one proven solution that would make a huge impact is better standardization of asset management.
