Discuss the feasibility of your recommendations based on supply chain constraints of Walmart in the case study. Justify your claims with specific evidence.

PromptUsing the providedWalmart China case study, create a supply chain evaluation in which you assessWalmart in terms of its demand forecasting, sourcing, transportation, andwarehousing processes in order to develop SCM recommendations that will reducecosts and risks to the business operation. It is strongly recommended that youthoroughly review the prompt below before you read the case study, and youshould continue to refer to the prompt as you read. You should format youranalysis and recommendations as if you were a consultant hired by Walmart.Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:I.Executive Summary: In this section, explain thepurpose of your brief and highlight key information and findings that will aidthe understanding of the more in-depth analysis and recommendations to follow.II.Demand Forecasting: In this section, firstassess the supply and demand side of Walmart’s product flow, including thecustomer’s needs and the supplier’s capabilities, in order to then identifypotential alignments that will keep cost and waste at aminimum.A. Evaluation 1. Analyze Walmart’s suppliers in terms oftheir abilities to meet the demand of customers during steady-state and peakoperations. How effective are each supplier’s inventory reorder points andeconomic order quantities? Support your analysis with quantitativeexamples. 2.Additionally, describe demand-forecasting constraints that exist within thesupply chain. For example, consider the distance of the stores and thecompatibility of the products in terms of shipping, storage, and so on.B. Recommendations: Based on your evaluation, recommendstrategies for better aligning the supply and demand side of Walmart’s productflow that will keep cost and waste at a minimum.III.Sourcing: In this section, first evaluate thenetwork sourcing strategy of Walmart in order to then identify possible areasin need of improvement that will leave room for future expansion.A. Evaluation: Assess the current network sourcingstrategy and determine whether or not the number and quality of suppliers isthe optimal mix for the operation. To what extent do the current suppliers meetsteady-state and peak demand? Are they consistently providing products thatmeet or exceed Walmart’s quality standards? Defend your assessment withexamples.B. Recommendations 1. Recommend a strategy to optimize thesourcing network that takes into account current operations and leaves room forfuture expansion. Be sure to consider any alternative sources of materialsavailable to the organization in yourresponse. 2. Recommend a standardprocedure for vetting suppliers to ensure that they are compliant with thecorporate social responsibility guidelines of Walmart. 3. Make sure that youhave recommended the best sourcing practices for Walmart using appropriatequantitativemethods.IV. Transportation: In this section, first consider theeffectiveness of Walmart’s transportation network in order to then determinepossible cost savings without sacrificing performance.A. Evaluation 1. Identify constraints within thetransportation network and discuss the impact they will have on the overallsupply chain operation. Be sure to provide specific examples to illustrate. 2.Analyze the transportation network and determine whether or not the correctmodes of transportation are being used based on time, cost, and quantity.B. Recommendations: Make recommendations on how to improve thetransportation network given the constraints you identified, using specificexamples to illustrate and justify your claims.V. Warehousing: In this section, first analyze Walmart’swarehousing network to in order to then determine requirements and developrecommendations for adequately meeting current and future storage needs.A. Evaluation 1. Analyze thecurrent warehousing infrastructure to determine if the current warehousingnetwork adequately meets storage needs. Additionally, consider eventualexpansion requirements of Walmart’s operation. What are the constraints orrestrictions involved in the possible locations? 2. Identify considerations forspecial handling of hazardous materials and describe their impact onwarehousing for the current mix of products that Walmart’s SCM is handling,using specific examples.B. Recommendations 1. Determinewarehousing requirements that will ensure adequate availability of resourcesfor the organization. Support your proposed requirements with given productionand demand elements from the scenario. 2. Based on your determination ofrequirements, recommend a warehouse design that will minimize movements betweenfunctions and reduce costs. Explain how your recommendation will drive thisimprovement throughout the network, considering facility costs, inventorycarrying costs, personnel costs, and equipment costs.VI. Conclusions: Inthe final section, take a critical look at your various recommendations inorder to develop final conclusions for Walmart.A. Prioritize yourdemand-forecasting, sourcing, transportation, and warehousing recommendationsbased on efficiency gain, cost, and sustainability.B. Discuss thefeasibility of your recommendations based on supply chain constraints ofWalmart in the case study. Justify your claims with specific evidence.
