It’s an amazing time to be a supply chain professional!
At EY, our purpose is Building a better working world. To deliver on this promise of having a positive impact on society and economies all over the world, we team with our clients and open our network to create and deliver insights so that all companies can keep pace in a world that’s changing faster than ever.
Although supply chains have been in the middle of the (perfect) storm for the last decade, the current state of technological evolution in our field has reached a maturity in which it’s now possible to deliver on the end-to-end visibility that we as supply chain professionals have always been chasing.
To facilitate and to foster a cross-company and cross-industry fellowship in which supply chain professionals can interact with and learn from each other how peer companies seize the opportunities the current environment is providing, we are hosting multiple Supply Chain Round tables per year.
Supply Chain Planning
How can your planning organization best fit your customer demand and be flexible in a disruptive environment?
In today’s shape-shifting world, companies are forced to do more than just meet customer needs — they anticipate them. Customers want on-demand access to products that are specifically tailored to their preferences. In response, companies and their supply chains are being transformed to deliver faster than customers think. This need for greater agility, while the bottom line is constantly watched, puts pressure on supply chain planning and the planners who are expected to keep pace within an ever-accelerating environment.
EY helps organization with their planning transformation and implements tailored solutions that fits their industry specific requirements. From scratch design of the target operation model to innovative technology solutions and planning as a service our teams can bring new innovative approaches to add more value to your planning organization.
Manufacturing Excellence - The COO Agenda
Does your organisation put the heartbeat in Manufacturing or does Manufacturing put the heartbeat in your organisation?
In a business environment characterized by disruptions, margin pressure and changing consumer demand, manufacturing performance is more critical than ever. Manufacturing Transformation enables a step change in operational performance to improve productivity and decrease waste and cost within the four walls of the factory by digitizing current factories and revolutionizing business models with fully autonomous factories of the future.
EY helps organisations achieve higher levels of manufacturing performance through our unique alliance with P&G, leveraging its Integrated Work Systems (IWS) to bring a significantly different approach to attaining improved supply chain performance and higher levels of manufacturing reliability. EY Smart Factory embeds manufacturing excellence by arming the shopfloor with dynamic predictive data analytics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence to deliver unprecedented performance & address the three main challenges of today's COO agenda:
- Sustainable & scalable operational excellence improvement
- Building a performance culture
- Technology return on investment
True performance improvement is delivered by trained and empowered people working with the right processes that are enabled by the right technologies to make better decisions.
Logistics & Fulfillment
What if you could deliver to your customers’ needs whilst reducing cost and meeting sustainability targets?
Companies are facing more pressure than ever to deliver goods to their customers anytime, anywhere thereby increasing the need for effective supply chain management. Many of today‘s supply chains, however, suffer from disparate and inefficient fulfilment processes in terms of performance, risk and cost. Logistics executives are faced with finding the right balance between these conflicting objectives (performance and costs) in a challenging environment with more pressure on sustainability.
EY‘s Logistics and Fulfilment solution helps you to address these traditional logistics challenges of efficiency, cost, accuracy and speed to market in an environment of ever-increasing complexity around delivery points and shortening lead times. Our team can assist you in setting up a fit-for-purpose logistics operating model that is supported by effective processes through adopting the latest technologies and innovations.
Procurement Optimisation - The CPO Agenda
In today’s shape-shifting world, with raw material and products that are either unavailable or unpredictable, with a higher emphasis on sustainability and with a broader social awareness of the origin of goods, companies are forced to rethink their entire Procurement strategy and operating model. Rebalancing Quality and Price with Sustainability targets are on top of the CPO agenda together with a more tailored collaboration and visibility with the entire upstream supply chain. This need for greater agility, while the bottom line is constantly watched, puts pressure on the procurement organization and the category managers/ buyers who are expected to keep pace within an ever-accelerating environment.
At EY, we assist our clients with those challenges through a unique combination of industry-specific insights, practical application of digital and emerging technologies and collaborating with a broad range of alliance partners. We ask better questions to find better answers, delivering better outcomes and a better working world.
