Supply Chain Network Optimization


Most supply chains developed organically over long periods of time and as a matter of course have become less effective and efficient.  Controlling and reducing supply chain costs are major goals for most companies but also making the supply chain less complex and more responsive have become equally important.

Reasons for a network redesign or supply chain optimization analysis are:
  • Reduce logistics costs for all modes
  • Reduce assets including inventory
  • Consolidate facilities, reduce footprint
  • Improve customer service
  • Increase agility and flexibility
  • Improve revenues

The tools we utilize are designed to model your entire supply chain from end-to-end and then perform optimization in order to determine total landed costs for your products.  The model is built by first creating a baseline to replicate your current supply chain network including your costs for transportation, production, inventory and distribution.

Once the baseline is validated then a series of scenarios are run in the model to project expected costs and service outcomes.  Expectations from network redesign are: realignment of manufacturing and distribution footprint, reduced transportation costs, improved customer service and improved EVA of your supply chain.
