The scale and depth of even the most humble supply chains can be staggering—and intimidating to even the most experienced technical and operational professionals during the early days of implementation. But the trick is to start small, prove out profitable results—and then scale up from there.
Initially we seek to create a snapshot of current supply chain dynamics. This includes mapping suppliers, partners, customers and end-to-end supply chain processes as well as detailing the systems, platforms, technologies and teams that currently make it all happen.
The next step entails identifying problems. How closely does your snapshot align with an ideal situation? What problems, challenges or bottlenecks exist? What is broken and what, in a perfect world, would this all look like? At this stage, we’re just talking about limitations and objectives, and aren’t yet worried about the specifics of solutions.
Once we have soft spots identified, we can explore what it takes to improve various aspects of your supply chain through automation. This means outlining very specific actions to improve very specific KPIs across mission-critical supply chain aspects. This process will help us identify immediate and near-term objectives and KPIs to track performance improvement through automation.
Finally, we’ll build a detailed supply chain connectivity roadmap. This will include the most practical and profitable connectivity starting point, which other areas to prioritize based on near-term revenue or profit impacts, forecasted outcomes and even a long-term map delineating connectivity initiatives by upcoming year.
There’s no one right answer to where supply chain connectivity should start. But there are options which will net you more savings of time and money, more quickly. Our process helps identify those areas, giving you strong options to prove the program quickly, gain momentum and improve the bottom line from Day 1.
