Buenas Prácticas en la Gestión de Proyectos de la Cadena de Suministros

Jan 24, 2019 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

La gestión de proyectos de la cadena de suministros (SCM) es una disciplina muy compleja que incluye una serie de procesos y servicios, específicos y concretos, que juega un papel central, con la finalidad de proporcionar soluciones viables para que cada proyecto relacionada a un mejor desempeño de la cadena de suministros en el que se halle involucrada se lleve a cabo con la máxima eficiencia y procurando la mayor optimización de recursos posible. No obstante, según el estudio “Enhacing Project Management” desarrollado por APICS en 2015 a más de 12,500 profesionales en SCM, solo un 9% de los participantes respondió que sus proyectos llegaron, al menos en un 90%, a cumplir con los objetivos de tiempo, costo y alcance Adicionalmente, un 62% indicó un nivel de stress significativo en su rol en proyectos de la SCM, siendo la fase de ejecución la más desafiante de gestionar con los involucrados. No obstante, en la actualidad no existe un estándar especializado y mundialmente aceptado por los profesionales vinculados a la gestión de iniciativas de la SCM, que brinde lineamientos claves sobre qué entregables, procesos, herramientas, técnicas e interesados pueden considerarse para dirigir un proyecto de SCM de principio a fin, garantizando un nivel de servicio adecuado y un uso mínimo de recursos físicos, tecnológicos y humanos. Por lo tanto, es de vital importancia transmitir a los directores de proyectos vinculados a la SCM la necesidad de aprender buenas prácticas en gestión de proyectos relacionados a la producción, abastecimiento, distribución, planificación y soporte de la cadena de suministros, que garantice el éxito rotundo en la consecución de sus objetivos alineados a los beneficios esperados por la organización ejecutora del proyecto.

Strategic Requirements Template

deliverable
by Andy Jordan

This deliverable aligns with the concepts expressed in the article Strategic Requirements Management.

deliverable
by Andy Jordan
