The way that your supply chain operates underpins everything your business achieves.
The supply chain spans your organisational structure (like real estate, people, equipment and systems) while taking account of external factors such as the suppliers you use and the physical logistics. All of these variables interact and combine to create your unique supply chain. But, over time, this ‘system’ changes and evolves - it is inevitable. Customer requirements as well as factors such as economic circumstances, changing legal requirements and unexpected events all influence it and force you to change the way you work. At best, the water is often left rather muddy; however, by carefully reviewing this, we can determine not only the efficiency of your supply chain but also the risk its evolution now presents. Importantly, we can recommend and implement changes that will allow you to establish an effective supply chain that earns its keep.
But before we can work with you to implement change, we need to understand where you have come from and where you want to go. The legacy that past decisions have left can be a source of strength or a constraint. They are often linked to the gaps that prevent you from achieving objectives. By taking a look at the complete picture, our supply chain specialists are able to use this insight to translate your operational strategy into tangible changes that needs to be made to the way you work. This often means influencing your ‘make or buy’ decisions to put in place the fundamental building blocks needed to improve efficiency, productivity, growth and innovation.
