CLASCMA had its humble beginning, initiated by a handful of Subject Matter Experts from different industries, wanting to see changes in the practices in Logistics and Supply Chain. Optimizing by adding Value and understanding supply chain risk which is critical to the sustainability of businesses, whether it is the Retail, Hospitality, Medical, etc.
In today’s context, standardization is achieved through the enterprise resource planning modules which are universally available software that manage your business. However what is lacking is the basic knowledge on how these applications work and fundamental understanding of logistics and supply chain management and the functions and its interrelation in cross-functional activities.
The role of Standardization undertaken by CLASCMA is to bring together the best practices in Logistics and Supply Chain by reinforcing the rudiments of the theory and placing them into practice. Uniformity is achieved through formalizing these within the network.
ISET – EXPERTS (Industrial Standards Enforcement Team)
The Industrial Standards and Benchmarking committee of CLASCMA has identified the need for optimised business processes and right integrated enterprise software solutions in resolving current challenges. ASIAN Small and Medium Sized Enterprises are facing the following constraints:
- Having limited optimized business processes and Info-Com and Technology Solutions(ICT)
- Having piece-meal solutions for Inventory control, Procurement and Contracts, Warehouse Management Systems, Transport and Fleet Management System, and the Enterprise Resource Planning System.
- The lack of competencies leads to unproductiveness and inefficiencies
To address and enforce industry standards, Industrial Standards Enforcement Team (“ISET”) has been established by CLASCMA around the rudiments of business optimisation for efficiency and effectiveness.
Industrial Standards Enforcement Team (“ISET”), evaluates current business processes, analyses gaps, maps to the required optimised processes for sustaining businesses. The following are critical industries:
- Oil & Gas
