IKEA’s Supply Chain

IKEA has an amazing supply chain.  IKEA’s founder, Ingvar Kamprad, seems to have many similarities with Sam Walton.

IKEA Quotes:

  • “To design a desk which may cost $1,000 is easy for a furniture designer, but to design a functional and good desk which shall cost $50 can only be done by the very best.” ~ Ingvar Kamprad, IKEA founder.
  • “I could regularly travel first class, but having money in abundance doesn’t seem like a good reason to waste it. Why should I choose first class? To be offered a glass of champagne from the air hostess? If it helped me arrive at my destination more quickly, then maybe.” ~ Ingvar Kamprad, Supply Chain Guru
  • “Making mistakes is the privilege of the active. It is always the mediocre people who are negative, who spend their time proving that they were not wrong.” ~ Ingvar Kamprad
  • “Waste of resources is a mortal sin at IKEA.”  ~ Ingvar Kamprad
  • “I’m a bit tight with money, but so what? I look at the money I’m about to spend on myself and ask myself if IKEA’s customers can afford it… I could regularly travel first class, but having money in abundance doesn’t seem like a good reason to waste it.. If there is such a thing as good leadership, it is to give a good example. I have to do so for all the IKEA employees.”  ~ Ingvar Kamprad

Logistics Quotes.

  • “Why not make the work easier and more interesting so that people do not have to sweat? The Toyota style is not to create results by working hard. It is a system that says there is no limit to people’s creativity. People don’t go to Toyota to ‘work’ they go there to ‘think’” ~ Taiichi Ohno
  • “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.”  ~ W. Edwards Deming
  • “Focus on the lowest total cost of ownership not the lowest price.” ~ EverythingSupplyChain.com
  • “Every breakthrough business idea begins with solving a common problem. The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity. I discovered a big one when I took apart an IBM PC. I made two interesting discoveries: The components were all manufactured by other companies, and the system that retailed for $3,000 cost about $600 in parts.” ~ Michael Dell
  • “If you think of standardization as the best that you know today, but which is to be improved tomorrow; you get somewhere.”  ~ Henry Ford, founder Ford Motor Company
  • “Eighty-five percent of the reasons for failure are deficiencies in the systems and process rather than the employee. The role of management is to change the process rather than badgering individuals to do better.” ~ W. Edwards Deming
  • “Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers who can cut through the argument debate and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.”  ~ Colin Powell

“Leaders win through logistics. Vision, sure. Strategy, yes. But when you go to war, you need to have both toilet paper and bullets at the right place at the right time. In other words, you must win through superior logistics.”  ~ Tom Peters

From design, including mechanical development, electronics, and IT, through to start-up, service, and system operation, people of varied backgrounds with different areas of specialization are involved in creating a logistics center that will operate around the clock. WITRON explains their tasks.

Logistics Quotes:

  • “Quality is free. It’s not a gift, but it’s free. The ‘unquality’ things are what cost money.”  ~ Phil Crosby.
  • “All we are doing is looking at the time line, from the moment the customer gives us an order to the point when we collect the cash. And we are reducing the time line by reducing the non-value adding wastes.”  ~ Taiichi Ohno.
  • “You will not find it difficult to prove that battles, campaigns, and even wars have been won or lost primarily because of logistics.”  ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower.
  • “Every breakthrough business idea begins with solving a common problem. The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity. I discovered a big one when I took apart an IBM PC. I made two interesting discoveries: The components were all manufactured by other companies, and the system that retailed for $3,000 cost about $600 in parts.”  ~ Michael Dell.
  • “Two basic rules of life are: 1) Change is inevitable. 2) Everybody resists change.”  ~ W. Edwards Deming.
  • “Imagine where your company would be if it didn’t adapt and leverage the Internet.  That will be the same way if your company doesn’t get involved with the Internet of Things (IoT).”  ~ EverythingSupplyChain.com.
