“Gentlemen, the officer who doesn’t know his communications and supply as well as his tactics is totally useless.”
~ General George S. Patton
“The more inventory a company has, the less likely they will have what they need.”
– Taiichi Ohno
Whether your business is high-volume/low-mix or low-volume/high-mix, a combination of both or somewhere in between, we have solutions to improve your material efficiency. From supplier selection/consolidation, negotiations, production approvals, ongoing replenishment through service support and end of life, we can help your team accomplish your goals. We will train your team to map out your value streams, identify the wastes in excess inventory and handling, deploy methods to improve material and labor efficiency from beginning to end of the value stream. If your sales forecasts are overly optimistic and not usable for planning, we will train and coach the organization in the sales, inventory and operations planning process. If recent acquisitions have left your supply chain with redundant part numbers and sources of supply, we can assist your consolidation and optimization. We will coach your team through the transition from replenishment to forecast to replenishment to demand and develop strategies to mitigate risks to supply disruption.
