Supply Chain Network Strategy

Design and optimise your supply chain network infrastructure

The supply chain network encompasses the physical infrastructure, systems and processes that handle products from supplier to customer, usually across international boundaries in today’s globalised supply chains. These are strategic design projects where the objective of is to define the lowest cost solution that meets the customer proposition.

Defining the most appropriate supply chain network involves, among other things; understanding how many warehouses should be operated, where each of those warehouses should be located to minimise transport and warehouse operating costs, how goods flow through the network, and how big each warehouse in the network should be based on the customer allocation.

The key deliverables of supply chain network design and optimisation projects is a report detailing the recommended network configuration, the capital and operating costs of the proposed changes, a transition roadmap, and details of how, and why, the preferred solution was selected. Our consultants also support or lead the business case preparation and approval process.

We Solve Problems

Typical Project Approach

We develop a strong working understanding of your supply chain network and operating model by facilitating a kick-off workshop and interviewing key stakeholders to enhance our understanding and build a picture of the project requirements.

We analyse representative data sets to understand current operational flows and create visualisations of the current network. Centre of Gravities are identified. Operational flows are overlaid with growth projections to create a ‘planning base’. This is used as a key input to the option modelling phase.

Our consultants agree a shortlist of feasible options with the client project team. We then create bespoke models to evaluate the financial and service levels of each scenario. A preferred solution is then agreed for further development.

We work with you to further develop the preferred solution and build a business case for board approval and to define a transition plan from the current to future state network.
