Supply Chain Evaluation

We understand that it is difficult to control your company’s revenues; however, you can control your costs, and we are here to help you.  We have ample expertise in supply chain evaluations, both in direct and indirect categories.  A rapid evaluation will help us present you an x-ray of your supply chain structure and basic cost trends; a deeper analysis will surface supplier performance, supplier quality, cost of poor quality, and other hidden productivity drivers.

We can deliver frameworks on commodity strategies, strategic sourcing processes, supplier performance measurement and tracking (scorecards), spend analyses, and related tools to bring robustness to your playbook.

 

Productivity

An element at times overlooked in general business management is productivity, productivity defined as a year-over-year cost reduction in the products or services sold, as well as indirect procurement and discretionary expenses.  As an extension of our Supply Chain evaluation services, a Productivity evaluation will identify areas of concern, and deliver a recommended cost recovery and control plan.

As a general rule of thumb your business should always aim at zero inflation and single digit year-over-year productivity.  If this is not currently happening, contact us!
