Supply Chain Excellence
For the excellence of your Supply Chain
Implement operational excellence consistently along the entire supply chain.
A goal-oriented management of customer requirements and the associated different goals is confronted with conflicts, complexity and continuous reprioritization. The field of tension does not only refer to the "external" customers, but to the same extent to the internal customers - your employees.
What is Supply Chain Excellence? What are best practices? Where do I stand compared to the competition?
Answering these questions is often one of the first challenges. Depending on your company, the question is elementary for internal or external as well as industry-related or cross-industry comparisons. The initial analysis supports the assessment of your own supply chain excellence maturity level in order to take targeted measures from this coordinate system.
Developing a strategy or analyzing a future or current status quo is only half the battle. One of the main challenges is to develop, train and implement a sustainable system to ensure long-term success. Companies that achieve Supply Chain Excellence are those that continuously develop the operational and organizational structure of the company in the sense of a continuous improvement process.
