Design your optimal manufacturing footprint for global-scale gains
Increasing volatility is driving the need for optimisation of the manufacturing footprint. Outsourcing, insourcing and nearsourcing can have significant impacts, which calls for a strategic review of the potential risks and gains.
Operational due diligence
Target company analysis is an essential asset during price negotiations between buyer and seller. But its value is only sustainable if the evaluations are based on deep operational understanding.
Operations development and organisation
Continuous change is necessary just to keep up with competitors. To overtake them, you must identify the next step and make your move before anyone else.
Process technology strategy
Process flow design relies on material, information and customer processing technologies. When effectively executed, it can significantly increase the impact of your customer service levels and cost-to-serve.
Operating model for your supply chain
Reduce delivery times and increase customer loyalty by streamlining the operating model for your supply chain.
Warehouse and distribution footprint
Companies are relocating manufacturing and sourcing to regions with lower labour costs to stay competitive. This affects the efficiency of warehousing and distribution. But which elements, in particular, will be strategically important in the next two years?
Supply network strategy
The market is more erratic than ever. Customer stock levels are becoming so lean that fast replenishment is needed. Therefore, it is important that supplier and customer relationships are transparent and well-managed.
