Evaluate and improve the maturity of the Supply Chain in SMI/SME

loading="lazy"

If the companies of intermediate, small or medium size are particularly agile and pragmatic, it is difficult for them to keep up to date with the fast changes in Supply Chain. The Lab ETI/PME's mission is to help them meet these challenges by accompanying them in the transformation of their Supply Chain. Thanks to the sharing of best practices between SMIs and large groups, the whole ecosystem wins.

The LAB ETI/PME has developed a program specific to your needs and your problems.

A Supply Chain self-diagnosis to assess its mastery of the fundamentals

loading="lazy"
This is the first milestone of the program designed by our Lab for small and medium-sized companies:
the Supply Chain Self-Assessment Questionnaire

This diagnosis has been elaborated by our members on the basis of the Supply Chain excellence referential of the France Supply Chain association. This audit methodology has been developed by professionals experts of the network and has been continuously updated for 25 years. The evaluation that we propose here is a synthesis in 22 questions. The evaluation scale has been calibrated based on the work of the Lab ETI-PME members and verified in real conditions.

Note: this tool aims to allow a reliable and quick assessment of your maturity level. It is not intended to replace an exhaustive audit, which remains necessary to design a Supply Chain improvement plan.

Best practice sheets to enter into an optimization process

The second step of the device intended for the ETI/SME consists in helping you topass to theaction. To do so, the members will be able to rely on the best practices sheets written by their peers, members of the France Supply Chain network.

These sheets illustrate how they have made progress in mastering the fundamentals, whether it be supplier relationship management, warehouse automation and information gathering, service quality measurement or the organization of business forecasts.

A participative program to deepen the pillars of a performing Supply Chain

The Lab ETI/PME has imagined a series of webinars spread over the year to present its sheets. The members of the association can thus benefit from the experience of the France Supply Chain network and go further in the optimization of their Supply Chain .

FAQ
How is the program structured?

During the 6 months of FSC coaching, you will participate in 4 intensive and personalized work sessions. You will be asked to prepare sessions 2, 3 and 4 during the 6 weeks of intersession.

What does it contain?

The program is divided into 5 days, the first 4 of which are face-to-face:

  1. Initial training: stakes and fundamentals of the Supply Chain, analysis of the self-diagnosis, quick wins and action plan. 
  2. Flow control workshop: focus on management and execution. 
  3. Performance workshop: indicators and focus on customer-oriented supply chain. 
  4. Advanced practices workshop: focus on CSR, digitalization and innovation.
  5. Closing distance learning session: feedback and next steps.

The workshops on days 2, 3 and 4 are built around the follow-up of the action plan, testimonials and site visits.

How is this system different from a consultant?

The philosophy of the France Supply Chain network is to offer its members places and opportunities to enrich each other and to help each other. The strength of this program lies in the collective intelligence of its members, who are committed to making lasting changes in companies and society.
