Effective Supply Chain Consultancy

Many organisations fail to truly coordinate their supply chains and often ‘sub optimise’ by treating each supply chain function as a silo i.e. targeting reductions in finished goods inventory without balancing the implications on economic production batch sizes, or bulk purchasing raw materials without considering the impact on working capital. Consequently, where one cost is driven down, another is increased. The result of a ‘sub optimised’ supply chain is often limited visibility, hidden costs and fragmented teams working against each other.
