Supply Chain Optimization

Operational Excellence through Process Optimization

A central task of any supply chain function is to stabilize inbound logistics and production supply as well as to improve the performance of outbound logistics and related customer service levels.

Based on this challenge, we help you create lean, effective and measurable processes, and to simplify and automate them. We thus reduce complexity, variability and uncertainty in your supply chain. This, in turn, is the basis for reducing lead times, process cost and inventory and improving process stability.

Typical Operational Excellence projects comprise the following aspects and services:

  • Develop supply and replenishment concepts: supplier management, procurement management, transport management
  • Process analysis and benchmarking against cross-industry best practices
  • (Re-)design of your material and information flows: simplify, streamline, optimize flow, automate
  • Develop further levers to reduce costs and improve process performance
  • Design and implement an integrated KPI and governance system to measure and improve process performance
  • Proof-of-concept and piloting of the developed measures
  • Implement, standardize and harmonize, optimized processes on a company-wide basis
  • Set up a continuous improvement program
