Supply chain and operations

In Consulting

EY Supply Chain and Operations consulting services addresses the complex issues and opportunities to grow and protect your operations. With an understanding of your overarching strategy, we‘ll help redefine your end-to-end supply chain and operations to support your enterprise objectives.

What EY can do for you

Historically, companies sold products and services through linear value chains. With the supply chain of the future, digital ecosystems consisting of market networks will enable hybrid forms of cooperation and competition. At the same time, technology, demographics and government policies are shaping industries as never before. To improve performance and innovation in this Transformative Age, companies must radically restructure their supply chains and operations.

EY‘s Supply Chain Reinvention Framework is a suite of asset-backed solutions enabled by advanced technologies such as data analytics, blockchain, machine learning, robotics and artificial intelligence. This suite of solutions extends from end-to-end supply chain strategy, strategic architecture, operational excellence, and supply chain resilience. We can help you harness the creativity and intelligence of your entire supplier ecosystem, increase collaboration, and ultimately help serve your customers better.

Supply Chain Smart Maps

As part of our Supply Chain Smart Maps™ solution, we use Supply Chain Strategic Analyzer, our proprietary software platform for supply chain intelligence. With this advanced diagnostic tool, you can analyze the entire breadth of your supply chain to better align with your business priorities. Smart Maps™ provide insights through quantitative analytics, standardizing, and qualitative performance assessments. These insights can help you identify the critical areas to increase performance and achieve your full supply chain potential.

Integrated Digital Planning

EY‘s Integrated Digital Planning solution is enabled by the latest technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cloud platforms, and is also supported by assets including VC Sync™, Working Capital Optimization, Cognitive Automation and “Lights Out” Planning. By taking advantage of our experience, assets and advanced technologies, the Integrated Digital Planning solution can help align your planning and decision-making at strategic, operational and tactical levels, and allow you to react faster to rapid changes in the marketplace.

Supply-side Optimization

A recent EY survey of procurement leaders indicated that more than half view digital as an immediate priority to enable cost savings, innovation, supply certainty and service. Supply-side success requires selecting the right suppliers with the right capabilities, engaged under the right commercial agreements to drive performance, and then actively managing this portfolio as the company and the supply base evolves. Our solution provides an end-to-end framework to deploy tailored processes and assets that will enable effective and efficient processes to optimize the supplier portfolio, manage commercial excellence, and conduct lights-out operations.

Smart Factory is our people-centric solution for bringing together operations strategy, industrial Internet of Things (IoT), shopfloor operational excellence (OpEx) leading practices and analytics to drive sustainable performance improvement. Smart Factory can help you understand whether your practice standards are consistent from line to line, leverage manufacturing data to improve results, and check whether your digital strategy is translating into performance on the shopfloor. This solution combines our leading capabilities with the cloud-based EY Catalyst OpEx platform and our EY Smart Factory execution apps to help you gain insights and take the right actions toward.

Digital Fulfillment

Many of today‘s supply chains suffer from disparate and inefficient fulfillment processes in terms of performance, risk and cost. EY‘s Digital Fulfillment solution leverages innovative technology such as autonomous automated vehicles to carry out goods movements, AI equipment to safeguard execution of material flow, and analytics to generate heat maps for areas to improve inventory allocation. The Digital Fulfillment solution can help you address the 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.
