Outlook 2008

2008 is a turbulent year offering both opportunities and risks. Today’s markets are as volatile as ever before. Despite the

strong growth of the German business sector, uncertainty is increasing. Prices for basic commodities, raw materials and

logistics services are constantly on the rise. The procurement markets are experiencing temporary shortages. In the light of

this development, companies must always be ready to face new challenges.

Therefore, purchasing and supply management are key factors in a company’s success. In order to successfully cover the

span between cost optimisation, quality assurance and availability, it is necessary to identify innovative solutions.

Under the slogan “Challenging Markets” we will present as well as intensively discuss new tried and tested solutions for

global procurement, partnerships with suppliers and supply chain management.

Face the challenges!

We welcome you to Berlin.

China Sourcing

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

In times of globalisation, only companies implementing and operating an

efficient quality and cost management can achieve long-term sustainability.

Product cycles are becoming shorter and shorter. Market maturity must be

attained faster. In order to pursue these aims it is essential that modern

procurement strategies are available and aligned with a global approach to

purchasing and production. In this light, China has a special role to play.

China has become Germany’s largest trade partner in Asia and has long

since developed into one of the most important procurement markets in

the world. However the expansion of the product portfolio as well as the

establishment of local production facilities has exposed the supply chain to

an increasing number of risks. In most cases the first sample product still

complies with the required standard. But what is to be done, if the next

deliveries fail to meet the necessary requirements.

When it comes to leveraging procurement in China, it is vital to carry out

on-the-spot quality inspections as well as introduce a systematic supplier

management. Moreover, many companies still fail to include the not in

substantial logistics costs in the organisation of their procurement

processes. It can easily happen that location advantages are offset by these
