Supply chain reinvention

Supply Chain Reinvention helps clients effect a fundamental change in their performance to support sales growth, become more cost-competitive, minimize risk and improve operational resilience.

What EY can do for you

The Supply Chain Reinvention framework can help your organization effect a fundamental change in its performance to support sales growth, become more cost-competitive, minimize risk and improve operational resilience. This is achieved by deploying a set of strategic and operational assets that combine operational and industry consulting capabilities to help deliver business benefits and superior financial results.

We have reinvented the supply chain with agile, profitable, technology-enabled structures we call demand response networks (DRNs). DRNs alter the product-centric, sequential plan-buy-make-sell-deliver-return view of supply chains to a demand-centric, networked, create-sense-shape-respond one that uses complex supply chain analytics solutions to drive significant improvements.

Navigate complex supply chains and build sustainable competitive advantage

EY teams are experienced in supporting your journey towards a more agile, resilient and sustainable supply chain. We understand the specific components of the supply chain and the overall route map including hotspots where innovation is created. From designing net-zero road maps to creating agile logistics networks, EY teams can support you in achieving your goal of building a supply chain that creates competitive advantage.

    With the increased pressures on operating margins in developed markets and the need to drive growth in emerging markets, consumer products companies are looking for the next evolution of their supply chain operating model.

  • Integrated Operational Excellence

    Integrated Operational Excellence helps organizations develop end-to-end operational improvement through:
