No matter how great the business strategy, if the operations function can’t meet the mark, it’s game over.

Our deep industry experience encompasses new product development, inventory strategy and integrated demand planning, sourcing and commodity management, manufacturing footprint strategy and operations, distribution network and logistics optimization, and sustainability. We employ programmatic approaches, leverage analytics capabilities, and offer managed services that can help improve top-line growth, lower costs, reduce response times and increase productivity.

Supply Chain Strategy

Like a puzzle within a puzzle, putting together the right pieces for a world class supply chain that is aligned to support an organization’s overall business strategy, is a complex undertaking. However, when done right, a high performing supply chain and strategically aligned operating model, is critical to reduce operating costs, optimize asset utilization, deliver superior customer service, and achieve competitive advantage.  

Deloitte’s Supply Chain Strategy practice helps organizations create, refine, and implement supply chain strategies that support an overarching business strategy.  We work with you to understand your current supply chain performance and capabilities and your future requirements to develop a supply chain strategy and transformation roadmap that addresses the future operating model (people, process, and technology) as well as network design and trading partner relationships, supply chain risk management, and M&A-related opportunities.

Supply Chain Planning

Effectively integrating your supply chain’s many parts in alignment with your organization’s financial plan, can contribute significantly to improvements in financial performance and market competitiveness.

Deloitte’s Supply Chain Planning practice helps you effectively manage and synchronize customer demand, supply chain assets, and working capital to drive and deliver improvements in customer service levels, supply chain costs, and working capital. We assist organizations with end-to-end supply chain planning vision definition, process development, supply chain flexibility, service/repair planning, system implementations, performance metrics, analytics, organization design, and change management.

Manufacturing Strategy & Operations

Deloitte’s Manufacturing Strategy & Operations practice drives core operational improvement in our clients’ value chains. We help our clients define their manufacturing strategy and align both production systems and supplier relationships. We use lean methods, analytics, and design for manufacturability to transform operational capabilities. By reducing waste and increasing responsiveness, agility, and returns on net assets, Deloitte prepares its clients to win in the rapidly changing, increasingly complex, global marketplace.

Sourcing & Procurement

Procurement in 2020 will look very different than it does today.  This radical and rapid change is transforming how organizations source and procure the various goods and services they need to operate.  As a result, new strategies, skills, knowledge, and tools are emerging to address today’s — and tomorrow’s — shifting challenges and opportunities.

Deloitte’s Sourcing and Procurement Practice has a proven track record of tackling these challenges and enabling our Clients to sustain measurable and impactful results.  We support our Clients’ sourcing aspirations by partnering to create and execute tailored strategy through execution approaches that consider short versus long-term value tradeoffs, knowledge transfer, culture change, and capability building.  We deliver rapid and meaningful results by helping our Clients optimize their indirect and direct spend needs through spend diagnostics, capability assessments, global category strategic sourcing, operating model and organization design, technology enablement, contract risk and performance management, and mergers and acquisitions.

Logistics & Distribution

As intricate as a spider’s web, logistics and distribution networks are highly complex, making the movement of products and materials from point to point on a global scale a significant challenge for many companies.

Deloitte’s Logistics & Distribution practice works with organizations to determine the most effective strategy and practices for moving the required product to the required place at the required time.  We help address issues such as distribution network strategy, logistics outsourcing strategy, sourcing of third-party logistics (3PL) service providers, logistics operating model, transport optimization, distribution operations and facility design, order to cash process optimization and transportation management systems.

Product Development

A truly efficient product development and engineering process requires both strategic and operational vision. Yet achieving both today is extraordinarily difficult. Product development organizations are under constant pressure to generate more big ideas with the potential to be the next big market-makers, and to do so while accelerating time to market, increasing profitability, reducing costs, and navigating an ever-changing landscape of compliance regulations.

Deloitte’s Product Development practice works with organizations to improve their product development related capabilities in order to improve product quality, reduce time-to-market, and drive increased return on their R&D investment. We can assist you with product and project portfolio management, new product development and change management processes, cross-functional development collaboration, organizational efficiency, product data management, and technology enablers.
