Supply Chain
A global company has rapidly grown over the years due to a combination of organic growth and acquisitions. Even though production and sales are performing great, the profit margin and customer satisfaction is not as expected.

Therefore the client wants to investigate how their products move throughout their supply chain and how much each shipment costs.
Our approach
Know your customer
Know your customer
The goal of the KYC is to understand your business context and the technical landscape:
  • What are the specifics of your business and business model?
  • What do you consider as your biggest business pains?
  • Inventory levels
  • Delivery speed
  • Completeness of delivery
  • What are your biggest opportunities and ambitions?
  • Higher customer satisfaction
  • More market share / value
  • Proximity to your customer base
  • Is your technical roadmap in line with your business goals?
  • Real-time reporting
  • Incorporating external / open data sources
  • Internet of Things
Proof of Value
Let’s assume that working capital and inventory levels are high and senior management currently doesn’t have sufficient information to remedy.

Create prototype and dashboard of the inventory levels based on:
  • Two key regions with high volume and value for your business
  • Gap analysis between existing and desired reports
  • Aligned definitions of the business concepts (e.g. unit of measure)
  • One snapshot of data
Verify and challenge the existing reports with the SME’s based on the same snapshot, to compare apples with apples.

Industrialisation
Let’s assume your company has a strategy of one central data platform.

Transition towards the desired end result by:
  • Automating data feeds from source system to central data platform
  • Defining data model for the end result
  • Implementing data transformations per source system
  • Defining and implementing update frequency based on availability and business need
The endgoal is to have a fully automated overview, that can provide the necessary information to strategic, tactical and operational management.
Outcome
  • Business alignment between regions on definitions of concepts related to Supply Chain
  • Fully automated data workflows on the client’s central data platform
  • One automated dashboard per topic
  • Standardised workflow for adding new data sources and business into this framework
