Logistics factors at Famosa  Toys are strongly season products: sales are concentrated between 3 or 4 months.  Toys life cycles are very short: arrive at the sales point at the beginning of October and have become obsolete by the end of December.  Manufacturing process needs to be “stock to order” which implies high risks in stocking inventory.  Since China is its largest supplier and lead times are long, Famosa is dependent on the intensive use of forecasting.

Problem Description     

Not structured production plan. Operational and logistics costs were too high. High level of capacity with huge semi-finished inventories. Products suffered high rates of obsolescence. Outsourcing in China used only as a source of components; products were still finished in Spain.  Production in Spain gave flexibility but incurred high cost inefficiency.  Distribution carried out from a single point only.  Dispatch of products packed loose, without using pallets.

The solution REDESIGN OF THE SUPPLY CHAIN:    

Changes in Organization and Information Technologies Reactive planning processes Collaborative planning with China Total redesign of distribution network

Changes in Organization and Information Technologies  Creation of and independent organization to manage a global and integrated supply chain to became more agile and capable in decision making.  Integration of the procurement process into operation management moving from a simple price negotiation to negotiation of business rules.  Integration of the operations in China into the company’s operations management, to improve quality and the reliability of production planning. Jorge León Bello__Master GEPS


Reactive Planning Processes  The main objective was to reduce the variability of forecasting accuracy due to market uncertainty.  This involved the creation of a planning department and transformation of speculative capacity (which involved purchase orders to enlarge capacity which ignored customer demand) into reactive capacity (which is more reliable).  Adaptation of the supply chain to the production cycles of the suppliers in China.

Reactive Planning Processes  Lowering the lead time of products classified as very important, to permit product to be launched with significant changes implemented as late as possible.  Giving priority to launch products which have a lower impact if forecasting proves to be wrong.  Rewarding customers who confirm their purchasing intentions in advance.

Collaborative Planning with China  Famosa decided to produce 80% of its end product in China.  The company’s relationships with suppliers are close: Famosa carries out production planning, and negotiates a Master Production Schedule with its given supplier, which launch its on Material Requirements Planning.  Famosa has at its disposal the capacity necessary during peak seasons and is able to postpone loading through a more efficient planning and negotiations process.
