Supply Chain & Network Operations

Imagine, deliver, and run your supply networks to address tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities. Our platform for generating critical insights, optimizing business processes, and automating supply chain activities across your value chains can help.

Traditional linear supply chains are evolving into sets of dynamic internet of thing (IoT)-enabled digital supply networks (DSNs). The perennial supply chain pressures of boosting productivity, supporting innovation, and moving faster—with more agility—become even more important as new business models, markets, and competitors emerge. In a digital economy, DNSs become imperative.

Our supply chain and network operations practice can help you imagine, deliver, and run your DSNs to address tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities. We tackle the most complex issues by drawing on global capabilities that span all areas of business strategy and operations across a wide range of industries.

Our world-class supply chain practice plus our extensive technology enablement and digital enterprise transformation capabilities can help you respond to supply chain disruption with confidence and agility. Our DSN strategy, insights and advanced solutions professionals can help you design, build, and operate a DSN, providing a flexible, future-facing ecosystem that connects elements across your supply chain—from product development to planning and sourcing to production and delivery, including post-delivery product monitoring, re-ordering, and customer support.

Our synchronized planning teams develop integrated business strategies and supply-planning solutions that coordinate the flow and delivery of products and materials through the supply network to optimally balance total cost to serve rising customer expectations. We’ll help you visualize and plan your supply network from end to end, advising on process development, supply chain flexibility, service/repair planning, system implementations, performance metrics, analytics, organization design, and change management.

To address logistics and distribution, implement our industry-leading strategies to develop best practices for moving the right product to the right place at the right time. Our people will guide you as you shape your distribution network, define your logistics outsourcing strategy, optimize your transport and warehouse operations, and design your logistics systems.

For supply management and digital procurement needs, we marry cutting-edge digital tools with market-leading consulting services to derive insight about spend management and deliver increased cost savings at a faster pace. Aim for the best return on investment on your third-party procurement spending through our cloud-based solutions and services, driving category management, supplier management, and sourcing of indirect and direct materials.

Our teams can also help transform your manufacturing portfolio into a competitive weapon and realize both the top- and bottom-line objectives of your organization with manufacturing strategy and smart operations, backed by innovative Industry 4.0 solutions. Through a combination of advanced digital assets and deep functional knowledge, we execute at the intersection of the boardroom and the shop floor.

To begin the transformation of your product development capabilities, you’ll need to improve product quality, reduce time to market, and increase R&D return on investment. Our product strategy and life-cycle management professionals help you optimize portfolio management, new product development, cross-functional collaboration, organizational efficiency, product data management, and technology solutions for product life-cycle management. Finally, our supply chain transformation teams help define and execute pre- and post-day one supply chain and operational synergy programs covering the full breadth of our supply chain and network operations offering.

From the manufacturing floor to the end consumer’s, you’re aiming for an unbreakable chain. We get that.
