Challenges
Supply chain strategy is a core capability of Eurosis Consulting, we understand trends, challenges, and best practices. Our strategic perspective, analytical capabilities, and hands-on engagement style enable us to create meaningful impact for our clients through supply chain strategy, design, implementation, and continuous performance improvement. Your supply chain can be a powerful tool for driving growth and creating competitive advantage, enabling you to deliver the products your customers want faster and more cheaply than your competitors. Even better, supply chain advantages are hard to copy, so the competitive edge is sustainable. We work with our clients to develop and embed a robust set of capabilities for optimizing supply, manufacturing and distribution networks, tailoring product flows, integrating demand management and operations planning, and driving sustainability and continuous improvement. We enable our clients to drive performance across the dimensions of growth, cost and asset efficiency, service and quality, risk and sustainability. We recognize the central role of the supply chain in enabling top line growth through geographic reach and differentiated service, while driving improvements in bottom line performance through scale and efficiency. We understand that ongoing changes in demand and supply markets mean that supply chains must constantly evolve to support the overall business strategy — extending geographic reach and product offerings, adjusting to changes and volatility in factor costs and supply markets, and managing growing levels of complexity. For today’s supply chains, change is constant and one-size-fits-all rarely works. Optimization requires a clear sense of what really matters to customers and a clear view of the cost/benefit trade-offs. Success means addressing key challenges such as these:
  • Aligning supply chain with business strategy
  • Managing the complexity of global distribution and logistics
  • Segmenting products and customers more effectively to better balance costs and service levels
  • Meeting demand with lower inventory levels
  • Optimizing the end-to-end supply chain to improve performance
We utilize a structured, fact-based approach to develop an analytical understanding of supply chain performance and underlying drivers. We generate this understanding from broad set of analytical capabilities that include supply chain benchmarking, competitive capability assessment, network and logistics optimization, tailored business streams analysis, demand planning and production scheduling, order-to-cash cycle management, category assortment optimization, predictive analytics, and sustainability strategy development.
Solutions
Effective supply chain management supports corporate strategy objectives such as globalization and growth, and in merger and acquisition or financial turnaround situations.We apply deep and distinctive functional expertise to help clients overcome typical supply chain challenges; for example, how to cope with demand and supply uncertainty, how to build and optimize the supply chain organization, and which supply chain planning and control strategies to employ.We integrate solutions across all operations disciplines. For example, rather than taking production constraints as given input to supply-chain planning, we aim to optimize the complete system with both lean production and planning approaches. Viewing market and customer service level requirements as a key driver of supply chain design, we work with marketing and sales, distribution channels, and pricing strategies. We tailor supply chain management principles to the specific characteristic of the sector. Taking fresh ideas from one sector, we can lift performance of clients in another. Our breadth and depth allows us to apply learning from fashion to electronics, from pharma wholesale to automotive service parts, and from retail to defense. Key client service areas include these four topics:
Strategy and Redesign:
We drive growth and competitiveness by cutting costs, reducing complexity, and increasing speed, service, and flexibility. We look for ways to rationalize and streamline the network of fixed assets.
Process Optimization:
We rethink and redesign the order-to-delivery process for faster, more effective operations, seeking to optimize the flow of all goods.
Inventory Management:
To keep inventory costs low, we optimize production and demand planning, fine-tune stock and service-level policies, and trim the SKU portfolio.
Organization Redesign:
As companies become more global, we work with them to develop the new capabilities, knowledge, governance models, and incentives they need.
