Literature has discussed about leveling of the strategic directions of two companies in the context of supply chain and logistics in order to proceed to storage of goods owned by one party by the other. The risk and costs Firms essentially need to make a simulation of the public warehouse provider’s operation in terms of capacity, labor, and location.

The risk factor associated with outsourcing cannot be eliminated but can be mitigated.
I. INTRODUCTION Managing the activity within the supply chain area is equal with several interrelated business that need to be optimized in purpose to depress the cost and increase the profit. The substantial aspects that most take the role are distribution and production planning. The considerations of integration between both of them are leading the company to have several goals such as minimizing the sum of holding cost, backorder cost, production cost, setup cost, capacity change cost, and unused capacity cost while satisfying the demand over specified time horizon , or in other words the output of production planning should be calculated precisely because it will become the input for distribution process. In consequence to achieve all the goals, the production planning will highly related with the manufacturing process which are based in 8 manufacturing plants whose location are centralized inside the industry area in Gresik and also the supply policies which are generally based on geographical
This form is usually filled as materials are taken from the raw materials inventory and utilized as part of the job; this is tracked by adding them to work‐in‐process. This is done in order to ensure that materials costs are correctly allocated to jobs in process. And important concept in Job Order Costing is Predetermined Overhead Rate. In order to save time and allocate cost as they are incurred, overhead costs are allocated to jobs in process using a predetermined overhead rate.
In this section, I’ll be explaining the difference between implicit and explicit costs. I will also provide two examples when they differ. An explicit cost is the amount of expenses a business incurs when conducting an activity. This type of cost includes but not limited to salaries, materials, rent and utilities.
Inbound logistics: Inbound logistics is one of the fundamental systems of logistics, concentrating on purchasing and organizing the inbound advancement of materials, parts, and/or finished stock from suppliers to collecting or get together plants, dissemination focuses, or retail stores. Given the organizations performed by logisticians, the rule fields of logistics can be isolated as takes
As described previously, the configuration of the individual logistics processes depends largely on the current phase of the logistic growth. At the same time, the question is which parts are involved in the formulation and implementation processes. When approaching the concept of logistics outsourcing, offers some valuable information.

Forward logistics concentrates on the products (goods or services) reaching the consumer end and deals with the line of flow from the manufacturer’s end to the consumer’s end. It deals with the very essence of Supply Chain Management and logistical activities of an organization.

With a piece of the value chain gone a company can respond quicker to a threat or new idea and with better flexibility. Location-specific resourcing advantages are country and human capital related. They include: infrastructure, government policy, labor, knowledge and time (Kedia & Mukherjee, 2009). A country overseas could be better equipped with the infrastructure to complete a piece of the value chain for a company in the US. Government policy may also be in better favor to the business process or service, as well as lower cost labor, more knowledge and time management.
The tool assists in identifying the profitability potential of new or current products in specific situations. The first force is supplier bargaining power. The company assesses how suppliers can increase or decrease the company’s product prices. The increase or decrease is dependent on the uniqueness of a product, the suppliers available, suppliers’ control, and strength over a company, and the cost of changing from one supplier to another.
Throughput is defined as the amount of material or items passing through a system or process.
