Supply Chain Co-Op (2)

  • Opportunity Profile:
    • Project Description:
      The BMS Devens campus is a modern biologics manufacturing facility, designed to operate using automated equipment to perform processing operations in order to deliver biologic medicines to our patients. We are constantly striving to better understand our current process performance and our future process fit capabilities.  As a result of our expanding business, we are continually trying to find ways to optimize our inventory utilization to support the growing facility without a major warehouse building expansion project.  The next phase of this process will be to evaluate the current inventory planning conventions to develop and implement supply chain improvements between BMS and its suppliers as well as ensuring that palletization and lot sizes are optimized.
      This project will involve working with our material planners, warehouse personnel, site procurement and our suppliers to identify systematic opportunities in the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning system and with our suppliers to optimize order quantities, lead times, and establish kanbans with our suppliers.
