Here is an overview of what Gerry Poe will present at the upcoming APICS meeting:
What comes to mind when thinking about simplifying and optimizing your enterprise?
Simplifying: Enabling business to operate as easy and relevant as possible.
Optimizing: Minimizing waste, controlling costs, ensuring growth, profit and future success.
Enterprise: Totality of people, systems and technologies within your organization.
The most important of these is your infrastructure.
Infrastructure is the glue containing hardware, software, architecture, communications, security, quality, operations, finance, manufacturing, distribution, power, and lighting.
Everything in the enterprise is riding on the successful deployment and management of your infrastructure.
To simplify and optimize your enterprise we need to start at the core principle of systems. As systems thinkers, we see a system as interoperating sets of processes consisting of people and technologies to obtain an objective.
All roads to a successful enterprise are not paved. Sometimes you need an Enterprise 4X4 a.k.a. your ERP Tool Chest.
You are welcome to join the April 12th meeting with Gerald Poe.
