Process Management in
Global Supply Chain
We use our expertise in supply chain management as an integrative tool for better global trade and supply chain processes.
Bottlenecks: these are a key impediment to better performance as a result of constraints on capacity. For example, assume your company is experiencing a high level of demand as a result of an progressive & aggressive marketing campaign with the resulting effect and limiting capacity on production capabilities as not being able to keep up with demand, creating challenges and errors in the production quality.

Scalability of your network: we defined it as the ability to 'ramp up' or 'down' service. With proper scalability, businesses can adjust their logistics and supply chains services and keep track of costs based on anticipated volumes and future demand.
Performance-driven culture: this is where most of the problems are usually channelled through. In other words, what is the response to supply chain challenges once the current operational status is disrupted by external events? Are people willing to take action and get to a solution that allows an optimal result? Looking back, would you consider that was the best action given the circumstances? Take a company with many product lines and several production lines with many different SKUs and deadlines in terms of incoming and outgoing material - what would be the typical response if a sudden supply chain interruption were to take place?
Process Improvement: our process improvement philosophy is centred around a set of standard approaches (like Six Sigma) that require 'personalization'. Supply chains are enormously diverse and complex and innovation that allows for scale-ability is only where we start. Where next is what we 'address' with you.
