Many companies no longer compete with their product- they compete with their supply chains. With its multitude of customer touch points and cost levers, the supply chain discipline has evolved over the years to be more critical than ever. Companies with top tier supply chains outperform their peers by a 2:1 margin. These leading companies, not surprisingly, enjoy a much stronger bottom line due to their supply chain performance.
If you are failing to service your customers properly- whether it is in poor delivery, reliability or responsiveness, or if your supply chain costs are out of line, we can help. We take a holistic look at your supply chain, and can relatively quickly decipher where the performance gaps are occurring. We use your data, and we work your teams to effect change.
Our approach begins with understanding how our client’s supply chain impacts its business model, and it ends with successful implementation of best practices and process changes designed to close performance gaps. Specifically, we cover the following areas:
- Supply chain strategy alignment
- Demand and supply planning- strategies and systems enablement
- Sales and operations planning (S&OP)
- Manufacturing improvements based upon lean principles
- Inventory strategies and tactics
- Transportation best practice
With our proven methodology, we can quickly triage your supply chain, and quickly focus on “stopping the bleeding”. Once the supply chain is stabilized, we can effectively shift to other projects, prioritized by ROI, to strengthen your supply chain and enable your long term success.
