Chapter 9 Running Case Assignment: Improving Operational Excellence:
Identifying Supply Chain Management Solutions
Software skills: Web browser and presentation software
Business skills: Locating and evaluating suppliers
In this project you’ll use the Web to identify the best suppliers for one component of a
dirt bike and appropriate supply chain management software for a small manufacturing
company.
A growing number of Dirt Bikes orders cannot be fulfilled on time because of delays in
obtaining some important components and parts for its motorcycles, especially their fuel
tanks. Complaints are mounting from distributors who fear losing sales if the dirt bikes
they have ordered are delayed too long. Dirt Bikes’s management has asked you to help it
address some of its supply chain issues.
Use the Internet to locate alternative suppliers for motorcycle fuel tanks. Identify
two or three suppliers. Find out the amount of time and cost to ship a fuel tank
(weighing about five pounds) by ground (surface delivery) from each supplier to
Dirt Bikes in Carbondale, Colorado. Which supplier is most likely to take the
shortest amount of time and cost the least to ship the fuel tanks?
Dirt Bikes’s management would like to know if there is any supply chain
management software for a small business that would be appropriate for Dirt
Bikes. Use the Internet to locate two supply chain management software providers
for companies such as Dirt Bikes. Briefly describe the capabilities of the two
software applications and indicate how they could help Dirt Bikes. Which supply
chain management software product would be more appropriate for Dirt Bikes?
Why?
