Inventory Turns cartoon

  1. What do you get if you play a supply chain country song backwards? You get your revenue back, you get your margin back, you get your on-time delivery back…
  2. How many supply chain planners does it take to change a light bulb? None, the light bulbs are late.
  3. What’s the difference between Bigfoot and an accurate forecast? Bigfoot has been sighted.
  4. The easiest way to find that missing inventory is to place a new PO.
  5. Demand forecasters are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but you still can’t help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.
  6. Employer: “For this buyer’s job, we need someone who is responsible.”
    Applicant: “I’m the one you want. In my last procurement job, every time there was a problem, they said I was responsible.”
  7. If you’re a supplier and you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of delivery dates.
  8. There are two theories to getting an accurate forecast. Neither one works.
  9. There are three kinds of people: those who can count and those who can’t.
  10. A farmer in the field with his cows counted 196 of them, but when he rounded them up he had 200!
