Barilla Spa

...Executive summary Barilla SpA, an Italian company, is the largest pasta manufacturer in the world in 1990. It produces 35% of all pasta sold in Italy and 22% of all pasta sold in Europe. Besides its pasta business, Barilla manufactures bakery and bread products as well. In order to tackle the increasing fluctuating demand, the Just-in-Time Distribution (JITD) was introduced by Brando Vitali in late 1980s, which was designed to streamline the manufacturing process and reduce the inventory cost. However, after two years’ implementation, Giorgio Maggiali, the successor of Brando felt frustrated facing so much internal resistance and ineffectiveness of the system. In my decision, I suggest that Barilla SpA should continue to apply the JITD program as long as several improvements could be made. I will illustrate my recommendation and implementation plans accordingly. Issue identification Based on the current situation of Barilla’s supply chain, two aspects of issue can be concluded as below. Immediate issue Due to the fluctuating demand in the market, orders for Barilla dry products often swung wildly from week to week. Such extreme demand variability strained Barilla’s manufacturing and logistics operations. Based on the existing process, it was very difficult for Barilla to quickly react to changing market demand by producing particular pasta. Thus it directly resulted in stockouts and losing potential sales. Systemic issues 1. Category Management (Timing: Short...

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Barilla SpA, world’s largest manufacturer of pasta based in Italy is experiencing extreme demand variability resulting to operational inefficiency and increased cost. To combat the key issues stated my decision is to implement the Just In Time Distribution (JITD). This new system, contrary to current system Barilla has will eliminate Bullwhip effect and stock outs by having centralized information, there will be data transparency between Barilla and distributors. Distributors will provide actual sales data which will be the basis of forecasting and production thus increasing in efficiency in operation and alleviating stock out among distributors. JITD will lead to improved supplier-customer relationship which in the long run can be perceived as a win-win situation. Internal resistance coming from Sales and Marketing will be resolved by involving the top management and by presenting the benefits of the JITD in figures and by emphasizing that role of Sales team in JITD is of paramount to the implementation. External resistance will be combated by thorough discussion presenting the long term benefits of all parties involved. Implementation of JITD as soon as possible will position Barilla on even stronger pasta producer and will potentially increase growth rate of the company resulting from increased business efficiencies and reduced cost. Barilla can have a pilot run on the DO (Distribuzione Organizzata) where sales representatives functions are dominant,......

Barilla Spa

...Executive Summary Barilla SpA was founded in 1875 and today is the world's largest pasta manufacturer. They produce 35% of all the pasta sold in Italy and 22% percent of what is sold in Europe. Barilla has revolutionized the pasta industry's marketing practices by creating a recognizable brand name and strong image. However, their traditional business practices are becoming increasingly inefficient and costly. Operating within a environment of large scale demand variations which have grossly inflated manufacturing, inventory, and transportation costs Giorgio Maggiali, director of Barilla's logistics department is proposing an innovative idea created by his predecessor Brando Vitali called Just-in-Time Distribution (JITD). This is a significant change from their traditional methods of distributors ordering freely and independently from Barilla. JITD requires that all members of the distribution channel share sales information and allow Barilla to order and dispense the amount of products to each distributor that they deem appropriate. This would ideally more accurately match supply with demand decreasing operational inefficiencies within the entire supply chain. The following report outlines the current issues facing Barilla and how the JITD system should improve their incumbent deficiencies. Issue(s) Identification Immediate Issue Extreme fluctuations in demand causing operational inefficiencies has Barilla looking for new options to improve. Maggiali......

Barilla Spa

...Barilla SpA What underlying problem is JITD trying to solve? And what are the causes of that problem? Barilla SpA experience serious fluctuations caused by small swings of the end customer demands, even it was the biggest pasta manufacturer in the Italy and even in Europe and has a systematic distribution channel over decades. The stockouts caused by the fluctuations gave Barilla SpA and its distributors pressures to have more inventories in the warehouse, which increase the cost of both parties. In addition, incrementally push the distributor to have more inventories of Barilla SpA is more and more impossible, because of the limited shelf spaces and the increasing number of new products. To reduce the costs and improve the service quality between Barilla SpA and distributors, Brando Vitali introduced the concept of Just In Time Distribution (JITD). The JITD system is a forecasting technology that specifies the delivery quantity by using the data from the retailors, instead of from the distributors requests. Are there internal barriers to JITD that would need to be dismantled? There were many barriers to the JITD both from the internal and external, and the internal barrier are from the marketing and sales department because they thought it is infeasible and dangerous. The most significant resistance was from the sales representatives, who believed that the JITD would make them less important because they might lose the control of inventory and promotion management.

Spa Cuisine

...arts. The most important factor about a spa cuisine is that it focuses on your health, with a balanced diet on order to help you in the long term. A good diet will help you to be productive, and will enable you to deliver better results in any field of productivity, be it professional or personal. It’s not only the food we eat but it is the method of cooking that matters as well, over-cooking can destroy the nutrients therefore grilling, wok-cooking are good recommendations as far as cooking is concerned and of course microwave cooking is another way of cooking food without applying much fat or oil in it. Food that was exposed to chemicals while it was growing or being reared is not a choice for healthy food either. And in these days, when taking care of the outside of your body with innumerable spa treatments is so popular, doesn't it make sense to think more seriously. Many people are beginning to think so. And that's why there's an ever-increasing demand for Spa Cuisine. Spa cuisine is essentially taking our food preparation and cooking methods back to the simpler and less refined ways of the past. As we have evolved things have become more and more refined; the natural processes of storage and cooking have been replaced with chemicals and microwaves etc. with spa cuisine we try to use the natural elements in food to assist the body in its day to day processes without placing unnecessary strain on it Spa Cuisine usually focuses on this very......

To eliminate these difficulties Giorgio Maggiali, the Chief of Barilla’s Logistics Department, has been trying to implement the Just-In-Time-Distribution, further referred as JITD, system proposed by his predecessor Brando Vitali. JITD can be called a remake of popular “Just-In-Time” manufacturing concept. Although Maggiali has been trying to convince his consumers that the JITD would definitely work, he has not made much progress. The program was met with significant resistance by the distributors and Barilla’s own Sales and Marketing organizations. Now Maggiali is looking for possible solutions of the problem. In the following analysis we will provide recommendations, which will help Barilla to successfully implement the JITD system and thus decrease its costs, increase efficiencies and its profits.
