The development of this global sourcing plan was completed throughout the semester as a team. First, a fictional store brand and product line was developed, and based on the needs of this brand we chose a leather supplier located in Italy. We completed a PEST analysis of the country our supplier was located in, as well as a micro analysis of the supplier itself. We created a Time and Action calendar, costing sheets, and a purchase order in order to portray the merchandise mix and other factors in our supplier decision. Lastly, we developed both a Quality Assurance checklist and a Supplier Evaluation sheet which would be used by our company. Every detail, from shipping, to payment, to logistics, was researched and considered in this project.
My role in this project was as the team leader and powerpoint designer (I enjoyed creating the MODA. logo), which received the 3rd highest score in the class.
