Supply chain mapping
Scope: 2 students completing 30 credits (20 weeks) each
Axis is currently growing quickly in many markets, growth during Q1-Q3 2011 was 37% in local currencies, and during Q3 Axis grew 45%! We accomplish this growth by quickly introducing many new products and selling them worldwide.
The fast introduction of new products, in many cases mechanically and optically advanced products, means that we are growing the number of strategic suppliers, and we are also getting quite a few complex supply chains for our mid-range and high-end products. This in turn quickly changes the number of single-source suppliers we have for new products.
All this drives a need to map the supply chain and suppliers for many of our products, in order to have a clear and visible base for risk management and decisions on where to focus second-source efforts.
Products developed by Axis are divided into three families – M, P and Q lines.
- M line are our affordable cameras and video encoders
- P Line represents the best compromise between price and functionality
- Q line are our high-performance and high-spec products.
The goals of the project are:
- Map all P and Q line camera and video encoder supply chains to identify critical suppliers and single-sources. Map all significant suppliers involved in these products, including supplier capacity. Include M line products to the extent that they are part of critical single sources for P or Q line products.
- Visualize the maps using a visualization tool.
- Suggest a process for periodically updating and reviewing the supply chain maps for P and Q line products,
- Suggest a process for how to use the maps for capacity and risk management.
