POPULAR CASE STUDY

  • A stretch target of $18M cost reduction over 3 years.
  • Inventories were too high, while other products suffered from stockouts.
The Essence Of Business Transformation

METHODOLOGY

  • Some projects in this wave are close to ‘kick-off’; these have been discussed for a long time and need to be brought to fruition quickly in order to gain credibility for the complete program. Potential to achieve significant supply chain improvements by implementing projects with a  high relative business benefit.
  • Projects with a higher level of difficulty and possibly higher risk. Implementation of projects in Wave A  will help strengthen implementation methodology which can be applied to the implementation of these projects.
  • The low relative benefit with medium implementation difficulty, therefore, does not justify immediate priority.
