In the present study strategies of solution to the problematic of exhaustion shelf product for a pharmacy chain located in Venezuela are proposed. First documentation and processes involved in the supply chain under study is analyzed. Thus, the ordering and inventory management as critical processes are identified Store. Then the strategies to reduce levels of depleted and improve sales develop. Such strategies are structured in a project consisting of three (3) pillars: ordering, inventory management and marketing. Then the draft is applied for three (3) months to a pilot group consisting of twelve (12) the pharmaceutical chain stores. This showed that during the months influenced by the strategies depleted levels of the pilot stores consistently remained below the levels of non-pilot stores, unlike what happened in previous months. Besides the pilot group improved sales volume during the months of the project by 31% over the previous year. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers. All rights reserved.


As part of a strategy to increase its global competitiveness, automotive manufacturing company has developed a comprehensive tool applicable to all processes it. This is called Excellence System, which is a management model that is based on the principles of Lean Manufacturing, and culture of continuous improvement. The research aims to develop a methodology to implement Lean Manufacturing techniques developed in the system of excellence in Supply Chain Company. For this collection began with bibliographic information related to the topic of study and gathering information on the different functional areas of logistics processes, analyzing how Excellence System is applied to each of these. At the conclusion of the research process entered the stage of analysis, in which the information collected was adapted to develop a proposal for a manual final product of the project and essential tool guide, reference and consultation for all players Industrial Management, who will use it to incorporate Lean Manufacturing techniques in the supply chain. The implementation of this manual within the organization allowed to increase the adaptability and flexibility of the supply chain by 55% and 45% respectively. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers.

The research aims to design a productivity assessment model for microfinance institutions, composed of systems management indicators of social and financial performance. The epistemological approach is holistic, the type of research is correlational-confirmatory and ex post facto design. Following the theoretical framework and conduct in-depth interviews, states that productivity is composed of efficiency, effectiveness and relevance; and proposes an initial design for the model. It is intended that the model allows managers to adjust the critical variables of microfinance institutions to propose control strategies that enable it to achieve a balance between financial and social performance. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers.

The research aims to validate a productivity assessment model for microfinance institutions, composed of systems management indicators of social and financial performance. The epistemological approach is holistic, the type of research is correlational-confirmatory and ex post facto design. Following the theoretical framework and conduct in-depth interviews states that productivity is composed of efficiency, effectiveness and relevance; and proposes an initial design for the model. This is validated by multivariate analysis techniques including factor analysis highlights. Efficiency of financial performance indicators, the effectiveness of social performance indicators, the relevance of the percentage of clients served in rural areas and: a model consisting of five (5) systems indicators twelve (12) variables is obtained as a result the relationship between the number of active clients and staff member, the effectiveness of financial ratios and investment climate through transparency and institutional environment. The model allows managers to adjust the critical variables of microfinance institutions to propose control strategies that enable it to achieve a balance between financial and social performance. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers.

With regard to microfinance institutions, managing both social objectives and financial lets you balance both aspects when making decisions and ensures the scope of the social mission sustainably, i.e., twice the expected balance of microcredit. From the above, the importance of determining the relationship between the variables that shape the social and financial performance of these organizations is clear. This is studied in this paper by means of a statistical analysis that includes correlations and data clusters on social and financial indicators on a sample of 208 microfinance institutions worldwide taken from public databases. The investigation concluded that a high effectiveness and efficiency for microfinance institutions supposed to be able to achieve their social and financial goals through the implementation of policies and compliance, outreach to the poor, financial products and services tailored to the needs of customers, profitability and self-sufficiency.
