|Managing and reducing cost continues to be one of the primary focal points of PSCM in oil and gas today. In many organizations, more than half of the total revenue is spent on goods and services, everything from raw material to overnight mail. Maintaining a competitive position and even survival will depend on the organization's ability to use all of the continuous improvement strategies that have been developed to reduce cost across the entire supply chain for the life of the product or service. Fundamental to developing and implementing these strategies is knowledge of cost/price analysis, value analysis, and total cost of ownership concepts. This course provides the concepts that are essential skill sets in developing and implementing the strategies required to achieve the high levels of cost reductions possible from the supply chain. SC-64 is also available as a 5-day in-house course with expanded content.|
