This year the “Paint Industry” had been chosen as the premise for the case study. The main attraction of the event was a Case Study which was based on real life Supply Chain issues faced by industries.
Mr. Vineet Kanaujia, General Manager – Marketing, Safexpress was one of the eminent Judges in ‘Aarohan 2009’. He presented his viewpoint on the role of Supply Chain during the economic slowdown.
Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Kanaujia said, “Our purpose for participating in this event is to provide the young generation a deep insight into the working of the supply chain industry, and how the industry caters to the dynamic needs of the clients. Today, when our economy is undergoing downturn, Supply Chain industry has a pivotal role to play in the swift bouncing back of our economy. It’s high time that companies took a closer look at their Supply Chain models and ironed out the inefficiencies in the same. At the end of the day, this will prove to be the critical differentiator between the winners and losers.”
Mr. Kanaujia further highlighted the scope of Supply Chain and said, “To endure the current economic slowdown, companies need to carefully evaluate their cost structure. As supply chain cost constitutes a major part of this structure, the focus should be to minimize inventory related costs so as to shorten the cash cycles. This would help them enhance their operating efficiency as well as help them achieve their Profitability targets.”
He further added “We are also here to offer our support for the movement of the belongings of the Symbiosis students in the form of our special customized service ‘campus2home’.
