Managing the Gypsum Board Supply Chain

Presented at Global Gypsum Conference 2014 by Robert Morrow

The management of the flow of goods includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work in process, inventory, and finished goods from the point of origin to the point of consumption. Alongside the movement of physical goods, there is also a flow of information, typically from the distributor back to the warehouse, to the plant and to plant management, which is required to regulate the supply of the physical goods in the future via a planning system. Supply chain costs make up around 60 - 75% of total gypsum board costs, including transport, raw materials, paper, energy and people. It may be possible in the future to create a mobile wallboard plant that might be mounted on a ship, that could be located close to any new markets or markets.
