environment, the challenges of the supply chain will be more difficult, companies do not have to keep up with the pace of development of the supply chain should be phased out finale.

The following are five key supply chain management challenges and how we help supply chain professionals address them.








Administration(FDA) to solve the five biggest supply chain challenges

2.1 Customer service
Effective supply chain management is the right Place at the right time, the right conditions, the right products and reasonable price.Today, whether it is the United States or abroad, to sources of increasingly diversified and blurring. In June of this year, the FDA Secretary proposed a "leading global product safety and quality," the report, including the proposed new imported overseas food and medicine as well as outsourcing products.

2.1.1 Solutions Developed and maintained by SCC members, the Supply Chain Operations Reference

(SCOR ) model provides a framework for measuring and understanding current supply chain conditions and performance and creates a foundation for improvement.It can help supply chain managers to evaluate the product cost, performance, and develop strategies to meet the needs of new customers, and to adapt to the growth of the global market.

2.2 Cost control

Today, under the pressure of the operating costs of the supply chain freight prices rose more customers around the world, technology upgrades, rising labor prices, the expanding medical expenses, new regulatory requirements and rising commodity prices. To control costs, there are some of potential indicators, measures of the supply chain organization can do. FDA pharmaceutical companies to cut spending and increase R & D productivity, how to transfer production and clinical trials to new areas to develop the relevant policies. U.S. pharmaceutical company currently imports 80% of bulk drugs.

2.2.1 Solution: Indicators to measure how the success of an organization, it is the foundation to achieve its desired objectives. SCOR metrics designed to combine the performance attributes of the supply chain, making it easier to compare different supply chain and supply chain strategy. SCOR 1 indicator is a strategic, high-level measures, usually across multiple SCOR processes. Metrics and a narrow subset of lower level process. For example, the research and development of the United States forward move overseas, an increasing number of clinical trials in the areas outside of the United States and Europe. The expansion of the production of drugs in the United States and abroad, and clinical research activities, prompted the FDA into a "super" office, in order to better deal with global issues.

2.3 Talent
As experienced supply chain management, and organizational scale to meet the needs of growing developing markets, talent recruitment, training and development, and is becoming more and more important. Supply chain leaders need a thorough understanding of the role of supply chain management, specific job qualifications, source specific skills and abilities needed to cultivate future talent and leaders, key competencies.

2.3.1 The solution: A member of SCC has developed into a will the SCOR to human resources management, personnel capacity of its global supply chain, and even organizations around the SCOR framework. They work off the release of SCOR 10, further improve SCOR 11. New skills process management framework supplementary reference indicators of reference and practical reference component baseline skills, key skills, job performance measures, as well as supply chain management certificate.

2.4 Supplier / partner relationship management

Different organizations, and even different departments within the same organization, you can have a different approach to measurement and communication performance expectations and results. The beginning of the trust, the manager let internal prejudices, and make a conscious choice in accordance with the standards agreed to by both sides to better understand the current performance and opportunities for improvement.

FDA efforts to promote overseas drug regulatory agencies to strengthen cooperative action, emerging countries and regions such as Asia, more and more cooperation including the new drug application for the drug's safety report, orphan drug, the FDA and the European Food and Drug Administration (EMA) and site inspection of bulk

drugs, a wide range of information exchange. 2.4.1:The solution The SCOR classification and analysis of the supply chain provides a universal language. The use of a common language and framework makes it easier for team communication, accelerate performance evaluation to improve the assessment of best practices.

2.5 Planning and risk management

Response to market changes, including the introduction of new products, global procurement, new acquisitions, the availability of credit, the need to protect intellectual property rights, and the ability to maintain the safety of assets and freight, supply chain must regularly evaluate and re-design. In addition, the need to supply chain risk identification and quantification.

The higher proportion of more and more overseas authorities to participate in the drug regulatory unchecked overseas medical equipment production workshop.At the same time, has also led to an increase in economic crimes, such as pharmaceuticals forgery, deception and deliberate adulteration. The FDA said in a report, the temptation for many market participants, the economic benefits far outweigh concerns about the health risks to humans and animals. As people get more and more interested in the online sale of drugs, there is often unknown origin, the lack of proper supervision and safety protection drugs.

2.5.1 Solution All departments in the organization, commercial, military and non-governmental organizations have found that, based on SCOR planning and risk management, faster, more comprehensive identification of potential risks, more easily with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders by coordination. It can help users to establish rules and policies, and assign responsibilities, coordinated response and monitor current

conditions. The risk is such an important topic, SCC, including a special risk part of the SCOR model to address the needs of members.FDA establish a global pharmaceutical air safety standards. By international manufacturers, contractors and drug regulatory authorities to help the FDA identify potential risks signal, assessment and supervision of causing public harm.

3. Conclusions
Through the above analysis, we understand such analysis and restructuring is an ongoing requirement for effective supply chain management.It is our mission at the Supply Chain Council (SCC) to aid these efforts by advancing supply chain knowledge and its application to solve real-world problems.
