Supply Chain Optimisation

Changing suppliers or manufacturers after years of engaging them can be a daunting and risky process. Still, it might be a necessary switch if the alternative can bring you cost savings, quicker delivery times and better-quality products. We can advise and manage the transition of projects between manufacturers so you can focus on key business functions.

Supply Chain Network Design
Your quarterback can analyze the existing supply chain network and recommend improvements. This includes assessing the location of production facilities, distribution centers, and warehouses to minimize transportation costs, reduce lead times, and improve overall responsiveness.
Demand Forecasting and Inventory Management
Accurate demand forecasting is crucial for maintaining optimal inventory levels. Your quarterback can help the design company implement advanced forecasting techniques and inventory management practices, such as Just-In-Time (JIT) and Economic Order Quantity (EOQ), to minimize carrying costs while ensuring product availability.
Supplier Relationship Management
Building strong relationships with suppliers is essential for a robust supply chain. Your quarterback can advise the company on implementing effective supplier relationship management practices, including supplier collaboration, risk management, and performance evaluation.
Transportation and Logistics Optimization
Your quarterback can review the transportation and logistics operations, identifying opportunities to streamline routes, consolidate shipments, and reduce transportation costs. We can also explore options for alternative transportation modes and evaluate the use of technology to optimize logistics processes.
Warehouse and Distribution Center Efficiency
Your quarterback can assess warehouse and distribution center operations to enhance efficiency and reduce handling and storage costs. This may involve implementing automation, optimizing layouts, and improving picking and packing processes.
Supply Chain Resilience and Risk Management
Your quarterback can help the design company identify potential supply chain risks and develop strategies to mitigate them. This includes creating contingency plans, diversifying suppliers, and establishing disaster recovery procedures.
Technology and Data Integration
Your quarterback can advise on the implementation of supply chain technologies, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), and Transportation Management Systems (TMS). These technologies can improve data visibility, streamline processes, and enhance decision-making capabilities.
Sustainable Supply Chain Practices
With growing environmental concerns, supply chain sustainability is becoming a priority for many companies. Your quarterback can help integrate eco-friendly practices into the supply chain, such as green sourcing, reducing carbon footprint, and promoting responsible waste management.
Performance Metrics and Continuous Improvement
Your quarterback can assist in defining key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure supply chain performance. By tracking these metrics, the design company can identify areas for improvement and implement continuous improvement initiatives to optimize the supply chain continually.

Design Transfer and Documentation
Your quarterback can facilitate the smooth transfer of the product design and associated documentation to the contract manufacturer. This includes providing detailed design specifications, assembly instructions, bill of materials (BOM), and any other necessary technical information to ensure accurate and consistent production.
Quality Assurance and Control
Your quarterback plays a crucial role in establishing robust quality assurance and control processes with the contract manufacturer. This includes defining quality standards, inspection procedures, testing protocols, and traceability measures to ensure that the final product meets the desired specifications and complies with relevant regulations.
Production Oversight
Contract manufacturing management involves continuous oversight of the production process to ensure adherence to agreed-upon timelines, quality benchmarks, and cost efficiency. Your quarterback may conduct periodic site visits, audits, and performance evaluations to monitor progress and address any issues promptly.
Supply Chain and Inventory Management
Your quarterback can assist in optimizing the supply chain and inventory management with the contract manufacturer. This includes coordinating material procurement, managing stock levels, and implementing Just-In-Time (JIT) practices to minimize inventory holding costs.
Communication and Collaboration
Effective communication between the design company and the contract manufacturer is essential. Your quarterback can help establish clear channels of communication, facilitate regular meetings, and ensure that both parties are aligned on project objectives and expectations.
Issue Resolution and Continuous Improvement
Inevitably, challenges may arise during the manufacturing process. Your quarterback can help resolve issues promptly and effectively. We can also encourage a culture of continuous improvement, working with the contract manufacturer to identify opportunities for enhancing efficiency and product quality.
Intellectual Property Protection
Protecting the design company’s intellectual property is critical when working with external manufacturers. Your quarterback can advise on implementing proper safeguards, confidentiality agreements, and measures to prevent unauthorized use or replication of proprietary information.
