Assignment 2 PAGE 73, Q 3 1. How much did Danaher have to change the way it conducted business to take advantage of the SupplyWorks software? What were the changes? Before I mention the change let me first define what SupplyWorks means! The SupplyWork system operates over the Web, with SupplyWorks providing the servers and their administration. (Text-book pg.72) This program was found to lower costs by purchasing more supplies from overseas vendors. Therefore, some changes were taken to change the company strategy; First, the Danaher switched from card-based kanban system (it is a Japanese method of supply chain management instead of relying on a manufacturing resource planning system.) into an electronic kanban system. Second, combined the plant’s Mapics inventory database with the SupplyWorks system. Third, this strategy increased the shipping and leaded times for parts and that buyer has to devote time to researching new vendors overseas. Thus, as the book stated, that the result showed that 75.6 percent reduction in buyer activities, which was marked as a wasteful of 105 hours per week.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
