Operations & Supply Chain

Operations, Supply Chain and Procurement are strategic elements in your company’s competitiveness, resilience, and ability to innovate.
Managing industrial operations and supply chain has become increasingly complex and requires:

  • A strategic vision to adapt the industrial footprint and globalized supply chains to growing relocation trends
  • Agility to face the volatility of the material and information flows, particularly in the crisis situation of post-Covid disruptions and raw material shortages
  • High-performance supply chain based on digitalized operations in line with industry 4.0 benefits
  • Actual integration of environmental, social and governance implication

Optimizing operations and supply chain activities implies several tradeoffs (e.g. service rate vs. stock level, local vs. global) activating the following 4 levers:

  1. Tools and processes to anticipate the upcoming issues in the short, medium and long term through early alert systems
  2. Collection and analysis of data to connect ERP information to demand, from market forecasts to customer orders
  3. Organization and governance to create an efficient link with the ‘extended enterprise’, i.e. the network of suppliers
  4. Skills and mindset from all stakeholders to support an efficient collaboration at the interfaces
