How we can help?
Productivity and efficiency are two most commonly associated words with supply chain. Supply chain is that part in the value chain, which is invisible to the external customer, but bridges the other two important parts – need discovery and sales & marketing. A successful supply chain strategy can provide several competitive advantages – innovation, being the first/ fastest to market, cost effectiveness, superior customer service etc.
Historically, innovation in any industry across the world has started from its “Supply Chain”. From the disruptive assembly line approach pioneered by Ford to the Japanese institutionalizing lean manufacturing and Total Quality Management principles, this function has been at the forefront of innovation across generations. The scenario continues to this date where digital is revolutionizing supply chains. Analytics is playing a pivotal role in driving this transformative phase and supply chain teams have benefited vastly from resultant increased productivity and efficiency.
Supply chain strategy has also been intrinsically associated with competitive advantage. In an era where consumers are increasingly becoming value and price conscious, manufacturing and supply chain cost leadership is top of mind for every CEO. With the implementation of GST and rise of e-commerce, barriers to trade and reach have come down significantly. Companies are now re-orienting their network and warehouse presence, inventory management and logistics planning. Further, management strategies across decades have focused on the importance of suppliers and their criticality to success has not diminished.
