We have custom applications for over 200 large clients We also provide applications for many industry programs We manage the print, storage, fulfillment and shipping of all paper documents Paper Credit Card Application

5 Forms Process Improvement was Necessary
1 to 10 year inventory on hand High scrape rate Too many rush orders – Large re-supply project in early ‘08 Complex ordering process Poor cost management Pallets of Forms Stored in the Building Basment

6 Supply Chain Project Steps
Process work-out with all team members Build SIPOC Create detailed process flow chart CTQ chart Fishbone diagram Record data Develop vendor selection proposal Roll-out new processes for future state Six sigma control chart Results

S.I.P.O.C. Forms Process From Supplier to Customers

8 Detailed Process Flow Chart
Too Many Process Steps

9 Critical to Quality Inventory turns Decrease process time Cycle time
Right Sized Inventory Quality Forecast with 80% accuracy Less than 10% spoilage Limit cost of safety stock Keep cost of production even throughout the year Cost

10 Cause & Effect / Fishbone Diagram
Measurements Materials People Low stock notification from Info-Plus is “off” “Fully loaded” cost of producing stock is not taken into consideration. No disciplined forecasting process X Within each industry app type, there are different versions for each tier. X Communication between groups is limited. x X X Output X It’s “cheaper” to produce larger quantities. We save money by making fewer shipments to dealers so we send large quantities. Sales, Marketing dictates how much supply should be sent to dealers but don’t pay for shipping or production x The annex cannot produce 28” apps so larger quantities are produced to accommodate for outsourcing lead time Info-Plus software is inadequate as an inventory management tool. High Inventory levels N Seasonality for industries causing spikes in usage X x x Environment Methods Machines X – Major variable x – Minor variable N – Noise (something that can’t be controlled)

12 In-house Process Could Not Handle 2 Million Apps
Data Collection Application demand has increased significantly, but supply process has not adapted In-house Process Could Not Handle 2 Million Apps

13 Poor In-house Fulfillment Process
Data Collection In-house supply process In-house Process Submit order to printer Ship forms to Retailer Store in Retailer basement Send some forms to “Annex” Submit some orders to “Annex” “Annex” send to basement Replenish remaining orders from basement Poor In-house Fulfillment Process

14 Wasted Supply Building up in Basement
Data Collection In-house Supply Process Flooring Retailer Example Retailer submitted 400 apps in ‘07 6 week re-order point 1800 Recorded on-hand inventory 4200 Actual on hand inventory 40000 i.e.: Demand and Supply Problem Exists Wasted Supply Building up in Basement

15 Supplier & Inventory Locations
2 Outside and 1 Inside Print Vendor 5 Inventory Storage Locations Vendor 1 Vendor 2 Basement 6th Floor In-House Vendor

16 High Level Problem Summary
Currently have 3 print vendors and store the supplies in 5 different locations Coordinating Pricing, inventorying, billing, reporting, and tracking very difficult and expensive There are no formal contracts in place to control costs and govern the relationships

17 Selection Criteria We need to reduce order-to-delivery cycle time and the overall cost of forms Need more accurate order and inventory management Need web-based, automated ordering to reduce costs Retailer needs to integrate and enhance its forms supply chain processes to better align with its strategic direction of JIT supplies while reducing costs

18 Vendor Selection Sent request for proposal to 5 vendors
Vendor must have proven advanced technical solutions Must have business leaders who understand and are committed to providing leading edge solutions Must have cost improvement execution for their customers Weighted-factor Analysis on many criteria
