Supply chain transparency and certainty has become imperative in several industries such as food and retail, however manufacturing and construction has been less essential. If resources are coming from a reliable source and they’re genuine, that’s all there is to it. Up until now….
Product availability is now one of the number one concerns architects have when specifying a product. Knowing where to get it, how much and how soon concerns all parties involved in a project, from the architect to the project teams. It is imperative that the stock from product manufacturers is available in the right place at the right time.
Supply Chain Uncertainty
As COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on global supply chains in 2019-20, it has become evident many Australian sectors rely heavily on foreign suppliers for goods.
Subsequently, many suppliers to the non-residential construction and infrastructure industries have struggled to keep up with the recent changes in global trade. Restrictions on travel and closed borders have also forced many firms to re-evaluate their supply chains in terms of global risk.
It is almost impossible, however, for most firms to anticipate every type of risk, and the only way to prepare for the unknown is to ensure flexibility across the supply chain. That is, being flexible enough to find alternatives sources if suddenly one supplier or region becomes unable to supply the business. Typically, alternate sources should already be established however suppliers need to have the right expertise and processes in place to understand various scenarios and move quickly to adapt.
