CEO Supply Chain Diagnostic

The client’s supply chain was in exponential growth-mode as a result of a major acquisition and increased demand. With added complexity in merging two companies, leaders were unable to stay in touch with the day to day operations and lost visibility to efficiently executing the basics. The project resulted in:

  • $2Million reduction in inventory carrying costs
  • $1Million reduction in transportation costs
  • Improved customer on-time delivery



Manufacturing Throughput Capacity Assessment

Servicing the customer was the highest priority for the company, however its overall manufacturing network lacked an enterprise-wide sales and operations planning (S&OP) and execution strategy. This resulted in: 

  • $34M in additional annual revenue capacity
  • $4M Cost savings
  • Gap Analysis and Recommended Closure Plan
  • Implementation Road Map


Working Capital Reduction Assessment

The client, a leading global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food processing and air transportation industries, was challenged with low on-time delivery and profit margins, imbalanced working capital, misaligned lead times, and poor inventory management. The project resulted in:
