Supply Chain Operations Consulting

Improve and Optimize your Operations

Once operations are aligned, the company should focus on improving or optimizing its current operations.

 

The operational level of supply chain management is the most obvious. These are the day-to-day processes, decision-making, and planning that take place to keep the supply chain active. The mistake that many companies make is to jump straight into operational management without focusing on the strategy and tactical levels. Effective operational level processes are the result of strong strategic and tactical planning. The most effective supply chain strategies are the result of a holistic management approach. When all 3 levels of supply chain management are given proper attention, every member of the supply chain benefits.

 

Some aspects of operational level management are:

  • Daily and weekly forecasting to figure out and satisfy demand

  • Production operations, including scheduling and detailed management of goods-in-process

  • Monitoring logistics activity for contract and order fulfilment

  • Settling damages or losses with suppliers, vendors, and clients

  • Managing incoming and outgoing materials and products, as well as on-hand inventories

It is not the Companies that are competing. It is the Supply Chains that are competing. How confident are you for your supply chain operations in the emerging economies like South East Asia, South America and Africa... or in the new normal of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity?
