- The paradox...
Reduction of stocks, reduction of number of suppliers, reduction of costs, reduction of structures...but increase of efficiency, competitiveness and profits.
- And...the solution
Proportioning costs to needs in order for the relation between cost and efficiency of structures to be direct and measurable. This is today possible by transforming the least profitable, but proportionally more expensive part of the internal supplying process, into services to be purchased on the market. This way there is an immediate transformation of fixed costs into variable costs that will follow the firm's trend.
