Supply Chain Mastery

SUPPLY CHAIN KNOWLEDGE BASE


Our operational backgrounds, our top level supply chain experience as well as our continued thought leadership in this arena results in a strong knowledge base.  

Supply chains are complex entities. In their totality, they consists of a large number of moving parts.

there is no dearth of pre-packaged half cooked prescriptions in this field.

From equipment that actually performs the supply chain tasks, to systems used to plan, schedule and track the supply chain tasks, to almost countless supply chain theories and methodologies some of which contradict each other, all claim to have a solution to all your supply chain problems.

In these circumstances, it is easy to either see only part of the picture, or take wrong pre-packaged prescription if one is not careful.

That is the reason, it is crucial to know the end-to-end supply chain in its totality in order to make significant improvements in the supply chain.

Following are just some of the supply chain equipment, facilities, systems, people, methodologies, theories, players and horizons that we have experience with:
