Supply Chain Planning

During the parts shortages of the last three years, OEMs have learned some crafty strategies about identifying parts that are highly likely to backorder and then blocking those parts from being overordered or ordered for less critical uses. When in crisis mode, these strategies were used to solve specific issues and unrolled quickly. However, these processes proved that dealers might be open to such limitations in the future. This session will cover:
• The genesis of OEM parts-blocking policies and procedures
• The execution of those policies in the ERP/WMS/ordering system
• The removal/overturn decisions for these policies • Dealer reactions
• Future situations in which parts blocking may be of use
