Supply Chain

Strategy & Roadmap

Transform Your Supply Chain 

In a globalized and competitive economy, companies, especially industrial firms, are confronted with multiple contradictory injunctions that impact the supply chain: 

  • How to produce and deliver at a lower cost while reducing delivery times
  • How to optimize inventory and working capital requirements while guaranteeing optimal service levels How to foster innovation among suppliers while negotiating total cost of ownership
  • How to tune volatile demand and rigid production tools
  • How to reconcile local service with effective centralization

These dilemmas are fundamental issues that go beyond tactical operational concerns and require strategic reflection on the business model and supply chain. Answering these questions requires analytical skills, a sense of the field and knowledge of best practices.
