Deep functional expertise. 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 support clients developing global manufacturing strategies with insight into global macroeconomic, factor cost, and strategic industry sector developments. Working together with our manufacturing group, we investigate production and technological drivers of footprint decisions such as economies of scale, specialization benefits of production technology, and the tailoring of production process technologies to local factor cost and skill conditions.
We can provide simple scenario evaluation to mathematical optimization of entire value chains, including impact of supply chain elements like logistics, inventory, and international trade-related costs. We also support site selection and negotiations with local authorities, tactical sequencing and communication strategies, and a wide range of practical footprint transformation best practices.
The implementation of supply chain solutions can be the most challenging step of supply chain improvements, particularly when the people and processes affected typically span several functions, organizations, and countries. We offer practical support via a range of tailored and proven intervention and transformation approaches designed to achieve both short-term impact and long-term sustainability.
