one centralized warehouse in Poland which labels the products and puts loads together for distribution to the different branches. In the old world, Avon pushed products out to country warehouses in the different markets before knowing what demand actually was. Now it holds products back in the centralized hub and diverts them to the markets that need them once sales trends become clear. Avon is also working to standardize its containers to cut costs and increase effiAvon is also working ciency. Once convinced that every product should have a distinct bottle and shape, the to standardize its company now realizes that cap, color, and containers and labeling can be sources of differentiation too. As a result, Avon has cut back sharply postpone labeling on the number of bottle styles and sizes it uses. This delivers a wide range of benefits. them to cut costs Manufacturing can be far more flexible and increase because changeover time is often zero from product to product. Suppliers can now run efficiency. Avon s containers down the more efficient, high-speed lines in their factories. And product costs are lower because of standardization. Avon has been able to reinvest savings in improved product formulations and leading-edge package design and marketing activities. For years, Avon was unable to cost-justify these types of changes. Now, with an end-to-end view of the trade-offs among different actions, the company can see the full effect of pulling one or more levers and make decisions that improve the supply chain as a whole.

This end-to-end view also changed how the company works with its suppliers. Avon used to seek out the least expensive materials and buy in large volumes to keep costs low. But the company began to see that the lowest price doesn t necessarily equal the lowest total cost. For instance, Avon found a supplier of inexpensive glass bottles in Mexico, but the delivery lead time from Mexico to Europe was long 8 to 12 weeks on a boat. When product demand was high and bottles were needed, Avon would fly them in, a costly solution. Even though the bottles themselves were inexpensive, the lack of flexibility and high expediting costs more than offset those savings.

Based on these insights, Avon completely changed its sourcing strategy. The company reduced its supplier base by more than half, embraced the concept of supplier partnerships, and focused on lowest total cost instead of lowest price. Today, Avon buys most of its inventory from suppliers that are close to its factories in Poland and Germany. Although the company may pay a slightly higher price on a per-unit basis, the benefits of managing far fewer relationships with more flexible, responsive suppliers result in a lower total cost overall. Dealing with a smaller number of suppliers delivered other dividends as well. Explains Watson, Because we have longer-term relationships, we can invest together in new, better ways of working. For example, Avon worked with its suppliers and a London-based design firm to create a better product design. In the process of standardizing the bottles for its different products, Avon asked its suppliers for help in designing new bottles in the most cost-effective way. The suppliers were able to explain why certain approaches were more costly than others how a lighter-weight bottle saves on materials, for instance, or how a bottle with a specific geometry comes off the production line almost twice as quickly. Avon also sat down with its suppliers and mapped out the whole manufacturing process, looking for ways to take out time Avon had to change and money. Together they identified where its own approach so there were inefficiencies and why. In many cases Avon had to change its own approach that suppliers could so that suppliers could manufacture its prodmanufacture its ucts more cost-effectively. For instance, Avon agreed to change its order patterns to reduce products more costthe suppliers manufacturing setup costs. effectively. Avon has stopped placing orders entirely with some suppliers, instead giving them access to production information via a Web-based system designed on the back of its own avon.com Web site. The suppliers just look at the factories production schedules and deliver accordingly.
