How Do I Design a Test if I Don’t Know My Supply Chain?
Thursday, September 17, 2020
10:00 - 11:00 AM CST
Problem: How can you properly design, test and validate your product to withstand the rigors of distribution within a region and from one region to another region?
Solution: Understand your supply chain handling process and create a test protocol for more robust and faster validation.
This presentation will walk you through the steps of the intuitive, informative and interactive process map of SC Johnson’s global supply chain environment to assist in product development and validation. You will learn how to utilize process maps to create regional simulated distribution test protocols. Additionally, you learn how to create a BCT (Box Compression Test) tool and PSF (Product Support Factor) procedure for a corrugate performance-based specification that is supplier agnostic based on the regional supply chain criteria.
