Effective supply chain management supports corporate strategy objectives such as globalization and growth, and in merger and acquisition or financial turnaround situations.
How we work
We apply deep and distinctive functional expertise to help clients overcome typical supply chain challenges; for example, how to cope with demand and supply uncertainty, how to build and optimize the supply chain organization, and which supply chain planning and control strategies to employ.
We supplement our client experience with targeted research programs to investigate the practices that really drive supply chain performance, as opposed to ‘flavor of the month’ approaches.
We integrate solutions across all operations disciplines. For example, rather than taking production constraints as given input to supply-chain planning, we aim to optimize the complete system with both lean production and planning approaches. Viewing market and customer service level requirements as a key driver of supply chain design, we work with marketing and sales, distribution channels, and pricing strategies.
We tailor supply chain management principles to the specific characteristic of the sector. Taking fresh ideas from one sector, we can lift performance of clients in another. Our breadth and depth allows us to apply learning from fashion to electronics, from pharma wholesale to automotive service parts, and from retail to defense.
