"We know our supply chain is struggling, but we don't know why or how to fix it."

"How do we compare to other companies?"

"How do we know we're doing the right things?"

These are concerns we hear on a regular basis from clients. 2018 was marked by challenges such as demand variability, inventory proliferation, manufacturing capacity constraints, and more. Your end-to-end supply chain provides a critical feedback loop to combat these challenges, but channeling that feedback into implementable solutions is no easy task.

LeanCor's end-to-end supply chain assessments provide a current state analysis and future state vision of your supply chain to deliver increased shareholder value through increased operating margins, revenues, and capital efficiency.

One third of the supply chain executives we surveyed don't have a supply chain vision.

In an end-to-end (E2E) supply chain assessment, we take a holistic perspective of your current state by deep-diving into key supply chain functional areas and all associated processes, resulting in a visual future-state road map of prioritized strategic and tactical improvement activities.

You receive: 

  • Benchmark assessment of your current supply chain against LeanCor’s Maturity Model Self-Assessment
  • Future state supply chain vision 
  • Practical recommendations
  • Prioritized opportunity timeline
  • Budget impact and other considerations

E2E Functional Area Deep Dives

Supply chain functional decisions should be made only after considering the effects on the entire supply chain’s effectiveness. During the functional area deep dives, LeanCor executive consultants conduct group interviews and process observations within key supply chain functions while supply chain engineers analyze data from your orders, inventory, and logistics. We then work with your teams to collaboratively identify opportunities that are tied to bench-marked, measurable targets.

E2E Supply Chain Vision: Picture Your Future State

After the functional area deep dives, we provide you with a road-map style vision to close the gap between your current state and desired future state with clear recommendations for implementation.

Upon agreement from all stakeholders, we'll help you manage the execution of this vision with LeanCor on-site resources or third party providers.
