The contribution of supply chain management excellence to the bottom line of a manufacturing company has been discussed for a number of years.  HP is aware of the critical nature of SCM in its business operations.  HP's end-to-end supply chain management embraces all internal and external organizations,  from vendors through intermediaries to customers.

The world economy has lost momentum, and market growth is slow. Even in these difficult times, successful enterprises demonstrate the importance of the right investment aimed at achieving or defending market or cost leadership.

SCM is an essential prerequisite of efficient globalization and partnership strategy, embracing processes, collaboration, and IT systems to put the manufacturer in control of the entire supply-and-demand chain.

Enabling technologies

Supply chain management projects usually are highly complex. Until recently, ROI calculation reports for senior managers and shareholders indicated that the benefits came at a very high price due to lack of critical standard technology. This lack has been overcome through enabling technologies from SAP and HP, leading to a higher ROI delivered through supply chain management.

Today, HP has all major areas of its global printing and imaging businesses up and running with SAP SCM and HP technologies. One of the most strategic IT projects after the HP/Compaq merger was the integration and consolidation of the supply chain, called the Integration Hub or iHub project.  HP and other companies know from experience that balance is critical to SCM project success.  These companies involve interdisciplinary and even intercompany teams embracing IT organization and departments.

Experience also has shown that the speed and the quality of SCM projects greatly benefit from an external consultant who can derive consistent processes that benefit all members of the supply chain. .

Leveraging the entire skill base of HP's manufacturing divisions as well as HP's rich experience and expertise in successful SCM projects, the HP services organization and other consultants partnering with HP in the SCM business provide comprehensive services.
