1. Best Supply Chain Network
A recommendation of the overall best supply chain network, based on cost and service level, from suppliers to customers.
2. Alternative Networks
At forecast volume, various conceptual alternative networks evaluated based on transportation costs, warehousing costs, inventory carrying costs and service performance levels.
3. Supporting Analysis
All supporting analysis, including planning factors, demand factors, supply/demand maps, risk analyses, market analysis, local opportunities and others as identified or required.
4. Noted Improvements
As data is parsed and the project progresses, any observed opportunities for improvement in the supply chain will be relayed as they are identified.
5. Implementation of the Recommended Supply Chain Network
We plan and manage the implementation to ensure no business interruption. Tasks include:
Project Detail Planning
Creating and agreeing on an implementation plan that minimizes business disruption, generally in Gantt chart format.
Handling all aspects of bid management, including: developing RFPs, soliciting RFPs responses, evaluating supplier responses, assisting contract negotiations.
Managing physical implementation: coordinating vendor scheduling, maintaining implementation plan, managing any unforeseen issues, verifying installation quality.
The four main criteria, quantitative and qualitative, of each concept are:
Analyzing transportation costs and service levels based on modes and requirements.
Determining the sizing and staffing levels, while identifying the lowest cost for each required facility.
Calculating the effects of each concept on inventory and service levels.
What-if analysis to determine the robustness of each alternative.
Outsourcing to 3PL
Economies of Scale
Deployment by Facility
Risk Analysis for Unwanted Factors
