BX2062 SP21 2020 - SUPPLY CHAIN AND VALUE CHAIN DESIGN
Use of environmentally friendly products in the construction projects is gaining popularity in the Australian as well as global market. Therefore, Nextgen Construction, a start-up business company, plans to use carbon fibre, thermal insulation and fireproof in its building materials production chain. Aim of this study is to recognise the organisations presented in the supply chain and understand potential challenges that companies can face while developing this supply chain.
Supply chain of product
In order to develop quality building materials, this start-up company is investing a significant amount of funding to collect ores from the international market. From the report, it has been found out that coal will be supplied by a domestic organisation, which is operating in Bowen Basin in North Queensland. Additionally, Zircon supply will be taken from the Pilbara region which is situated in the Western Australia. Specialised toughened glass supply is also needed to name carbon fibre building material. Therefore, local glass creators will provide Nextgen Construction toughen glass. Furthermore, it has been noted that this start-up organisation will collect silver ore from the highlands of Papua New Guinea to maintain the quality of their materials. On the other hand, Yttrium which is used to provide extra strength to the carbon fibre, will be exported from Chile.
