>> Supply Chain Solutions that Deliver. Enterprise SOP Project Creator Training Material 10/22/2002
2 Brief History - SOP Project SOP’s are designed to empower UTi branch operators with the necessary and thorough knowledge of UTi’s global customers supply chain operations requirements. The SOP Enterprise team objectives were to develop a standard SOP Template which was consistent in Structure and Format, and deploy it to UTi branches globally. The SOP Enterprise project is to initially address SOP Deployment and Training with UTi’s top 20 global PLP’s to ensure standard and consistent levels of service provided. The SOP’s are to be posted within ‘Inzalo’ and will also contain the necessary tools and information to support the Customer SOP and Implementation Process project. Inzalo will be the preferred method of sharing the SOP’s with all involved and will eventually make the individual customer SOP’s a real time integrated part of the business process.
3 Current Problems with SOP’s Some of the Current problems we experience with our SOP’s are as follows: They typically demonstrate an inconsistent Structure and Format in their design. SOP’s are generally not Distributed amongst the relevant UTi branches well enough, and in a consisent manner. Operations people tend to find the SOP’s contain Too Much Information – and can be “Confusing!” There tends to be poor Version Control – “Is my version up to date?” Does the SOP have the correct Content – “Am I missing something?”

7 MindManager – Creation Tool A Pilot project tested the viability of using the MindManager product from MindJet and the posting of SOP templates as browser pages on Inzalo. MindManager was selected as the tool to create and manage the SOP templates. As a result, MindManager is being used to map and enter all of the SOP information for managing a specific account. MindManager Features: create mind-mapping templates, Create SOP Web pages Create Word outputs Current Content Can Be Manually Translated Into the MindManager Template.
8 MindManager – Creation Tool
9 MindManager – HTML Format
10 Standard Template Breakdown The SOP Template Breakdown will broadly define the following Categories of the SOP: Customer Overview Account Requirements Operations Billing Instructions Claims Key Contacts Reporting Supporting Documents Glossary
11 Customer Overview Customer Overview Definition: A brief description of the Business covered, scope of work, and customer KPI’s. Description: The Customer Overview is to provide operations with a comprehensive understanding of the Business covered, company background, Scope of work such areas of import / export, commodities of trade, and Customer Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s), etc.
12 Account Requirements Account Requirements Definition: A brief understanding of the Customers Supply Chain Requirements. Description: The purpose of the Account Requirements is to provide operations with a comprehensive understanding of the procedures and guidelines for handling international shipments on behalf of the customer in mention. This section may incorporate a short description of the Service Level Agreement.
13 Operations Operations Definition: The operational activities required to perform the necessary shipment procedures. Description: The Operations process can be broken down into sub-branches for Air / Ocean and Imports / Exports. Further sub- sections can be incorporated such as ‘Transportation’ and ‘Documentation’ procedures and these should explain the necessary steps operations need to perform in order to meet customer shipment expectations.
14 Billing Instructions Billing Instructions Definition: The Billing activities required to perform the necessary Invoicing procedures. Description: The Billing procedures are intended to highlight the necessary action steps to be taken when ‘Invoicing’ and the raising of ‘Credit Notes’, etc, and any other special instructions to be adhered to when Billing out to this particular customer.
15 Claims Claims Definition: The Claims procedures to be followed in the event of Loss / Fire / Damage, etc. Description: The Claims procedures are intended to advise operations of any Policy procedures that UTi and the Customer may have agreed upon. In the event of Loss / Damage / Fire / Theft, etc., operations are to follow the claims procedures to see who the claims are to be filed against, and the necessary timing thereof.
16 Key Contacts Key Contacts Definition: The contact details for relevant Customer and UTi (or agent) staff responsible for the account. Description: The Key Contacts are split into sub-sections labelled Customer Contacts / UTi Contacts / Buying Agents, etc. This is to help operations understand who to contact in the event of a query, or discrepency, on documentation, transport, IT, warehouse procedures, etc.
17 Reporting Reporting Definition: Any Reports, or Reporting Requirements, which the customer may expect UTi to fulfil. Description: The Reporting section would detail types of reports UTi have enabled (as a by-product of the transportation and IT processes). This would help the customer in managing their entire Supply Chain, & could take the form of eMpower or automated reports, or EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) for the receipt and transmission of Purchase Orders.
18 Supporting Documents Supporting Documents Definition: This is any relevant documentation necessary for the shipment procedures. Description: The Supporting Documentation section can be a useful tool for highlighting any other relevant documentation necessary for the shipment procedures. The SOP can also include copies of Pre-alert forms, Supplier Invoices, Bills of Ladings, etc. This can be useful for illustrating and allowing operations to view Cust. Ref numbers, for example.
19 Glossary Glossary Definition: An appendix of unfamiliar terms and expressions which are perhaps used in the customer SOP. Description: The Glossary can be a useful ‘tail’ section to describe certain terms and expressions that are perhaps unfamiliar to the operations staff, e.g. IncoTerms, warehousing terms, foreign landside expressions, etc.
20 Process Tasks Now that you have a better idea of the ‘Standard Template Breakdown’, I.e. the structure of the SOP and what each section entails, it is also necessary to advise best practice methods for the layout of the different sections. European practice has identified key ‘Process Tasks’ which enable operations to fully understand the processes and process owners. These can be listed as follows: Process Owner – responsible group / organization. Process Trigger – action that initiates the process. Process Objective – description of action that initiates the process. Process Input – information needed for process completion. Process Output – output related to input.
21 Process Tasks - Exercise The following indicates a typical form of verbiage one might expect to come across in SOP’s. This can easily be translated into ‘Process Owners’ and ‘Process Triggers’, etc. By following this methodology, it is easier for operations to follow and understand since the ‘Task Process’ becomes more structural and concise.
22 Process Tasks - Exercise By categorising into the ‘Process Tasks’ the verbiage can be minimized in content, and simplified so as to be easily identifiable & understood by operations staff. The ‘Copy & Paste’ method can now be used to translate this verbiage from the MS Word doc into the MindManager template. Pls see next slide ……
23 Process Tasks - Exercise Click on the Sub-Branch to which you wish to add the ‘Process Tasks’ to. Using the ‘Copy & Paste’ method, insert the verbiage from the MS Word doc into the MindManager template. Alternatively, if creating a new SOP, you can simply type the verbiage in this field automatically. Pls see next slide ……
24 Process Tasks - Exercise When Exported into an HTML (Web) environment, and ultimately posted onto ‘Inzalo’, the ‘Process Tasks’ are now more easily identifiable for operations staff to understand i.t.o. process ownership and responsibilities.

27 Approval Process SOP Author – aka the SOP Creator, once complete with the creation / translation of the SOP, must submit a proof copy to his/her regional management for sign-off that the SOP is true and correct. Regional Management – must proof read and sign-off approval of the SOP. Should then confirm with Author at soonest opportunity so that the approval process is not delayed. Operations Management - must proof read and sign-off approval of the SOP. Should then confirm with Author at soonest opportunity so that the approval process is not delayed. Regional Sales - must proof read and sign-off approval of the SOP. Should then confirm with Author at soonest opportunity so that the approval process is not delayed. Global IT – must verify and sign-off that the SOP is in accordance with the rules set for posting onto ‘Inzalo’. SOP Poster – the SOP Author then needs to hand the SOP to the Poster who will then be responsible for posting the SOP onto ‘Inzalo’. Implementation Team – must ensure relevant branches responsible for the ops requirements know how / where to access the SOP; ensure correct implementation of the SOP with the branches; hand over to regional training & support to train the relevant ops people on how to use the SOP.
