The misunderstandings of Knowledge Management

1. Knowledge management is about knowledge. Knowledge management system should focus on rapid growth, improve operations and increase profit space.

2. Knowledge management is about technology. Knowledge management is not a pure technology project, it must be able to adapt to rapidly changing business environment.

The misunderstandings of inventory management in China

The general methods used in enterprises in China: the goods can be compressive stored in the freight forwarding warehouse, or even store on the road, aircraft, trains, ships, cars, everywhere without in the warehouse. Because the general method is based on the actual received and into the account of cash when the enterprise calculates the inventory turns. Or materials to the warehouse would not join the system, as long as not join the system, the financial department can pass it without clear inspecting. At the moment, inventory value is too high. There is another method is make a deal with clients and distributors to send the goods firstly when come to the end of year. Most manufacturers have a wide range of materials, hundreds of suppliers and different kinds of packaging sizes, etc., so inventory matching rate will become a difficult issue. It involves all aspects of its core strategy are inventory levels, procurement plans and enforcement issues. The solution of this problem is difficult to find only rely on the technology academic consultants.

Inventory management

Inventory management, is a manufacturing or service production, the whole process of operation of various articles, products, and other resources to manage and control its reserves to maintain a reasonable level in the economy.

The significance of inventory management: The main function are: Ensure the production, operation under the premise of demand and inventory volume was maintained at a reasonable level; Control inventory dynamic, timely, appropriate proposed order, to avoid over storage or out of stock; Reduce inventory space requirements and lower total cost of inventory, and control the amount of funds used inventory and speed up cash flow.

the two main requirements of CKO

First of all, CKO should be a technical expert. CKO must understand which technologies contribute to knowledge acquisition, storage, use and share. Early research showed that CKO is often the first step to IT-based, such as creating knowledge directories, the development of knowledge-sharing components, building internal networks. Therefore, CKO must have sufficient understanding of technology, he must be able to understand the requirements of knowledge management technology, and to determine which technology is effective; he must be able identify new technologies, opportunities and threats, as well as clear when using the new technologies. Secondly, CKO should be a strategist. To achieve effective knowledge management, only with the right hardware and software systems is not enough. It requires the company leadership treat collective knowledge development, sharing and innovation as pillars of competitive advantage, including information on all the knowledge resources and integrated decision-making, to carry on the implementation of comprehensive management. Because the direct objectives of CKO are not the workers under the CKO, actually they work in a parallel line to carry out knowledge management. CKO only can use their influence, persuasion and presentation and other methods to gain the trust. They often have to spend a lot of time to convince corporate employees one by one, let them believe that there are existed knowledge gap and the resulting dangers and opportunities, and then design and plan more targeted knowledge management program. In a word, rich professional background and credibility within the organization are the favorable conditions for the success of CKO.

CKO – the key to knowledge management in the company

Following the enterprise become into a learning organization, CKO begin to show in the top leadership which is responsible for enterprise knowledge management strategy operation. Many enterprises try to hire CKO to carry out KM project, the biggest problem currently is how to recognize and use the knowledge within the enterprise. CKO can set up and re-use of business process knowledge and make effective knowledge management to contribute to the success of enterprises. What is CKO? CKO is responsible for promoting knowledge transfer and organizational learning, there are many different titles - CKO, CIO (Chief Information Officer), CLO (Chief Learning Officer) and CCO (Chief Collaboration Officer) currently, and these functions are no clear distinctions which are committed to integrate business intelligence resources to support corporate business objectives. CKO has two main functions: design enterprise information portals and other IT knowledge base structure and build a knowledge sharing culture. Value CKO stressed the value of existing knowledge management to the business model to expand and become a corporate strategy. Former BP knowledge director Kent Greenes, built a knowledge management process and achieved remarkable results which saved 0.26 billion U.S. dollars in 1998. CKO can prove their value of existence through saving money and promoting the productivity. CKO creates the dialogue and manages the knowledge asset CKO are designers and architects.

On Friday, we talked about so much about just in time, now I¡®d like to know more about it. The essence of JIT is maintain the material flow and information flow in production simultaneously in order to achieve a proper amount of material at the right time to enter the right place and produce right quality products. This approach can reduce inventory, shorten working hours, reduce costs and increase productivity. The basic idea of JIT production is only when needed, produce the products according to the required amount. Which is also a minimize production system with the pursuit of a non-stock, or inventory based on production planning and control. In this way, JIT can be driven by the order and link up the supply, production, and marketing closely to reduce material reserves, the cost of inventory and a significant reduction in the products, improve production efficiency. In the promotion of the application process, through constant development and improvement, JIT treated as the take off wings for Japanese auto industry. This production also drawn the attention of the world's industrial sector is seen as the most viable in today's new manufacturing production systems in the world. JIT idea is the core concept for production for modern enterprise which must strictly carry out, but the realization depends on specific business and production methods, there are only been explored in practice in order to establish their own JIT.
