    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.

    • Strategic Architecture

      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.

      The EY Integrated Supply Chain Operating Model framework offers the following to help companies transform their operating models:

      • Geographic assessment
      • Integrated supply chain network
      • Integrated systems data
      • Integrated operating model structure
      • Integrated governance and performance management

      Network and flow optimization aims to create an integrated supply chain with end-to-end optimization and accountability while supporting success in local markets. The solution provides tools and methodologies to strengthen the configuration of global manufacturing and logistics networks as well as analytic capability to improve trade flows.

    • Integrated Operational Excellence

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

      • Supply chain segmentation and synchronization – A methodology, supported by our proprietary VC Sync™ tool, that looks across the supply chain to define a fully integrated and segmented strategy.
      • Initiative reliability and complexity reduction – Initiative reliability provides an integrated, cross-functional approach for increasing the speed and reducing the failure rate of innovation initiatives. Complexity reduction improves product portfolio/SKUs by linking commercial and supply chain views.
      • Commercial excellence – A procurement transformation encompassing the operating model, analytics, alliances, risk management, procure-to-pay and automation.
      • Run to Target manufacturing – A distinctive approach combining Reliability Engineering with Lean, TPM and Six Sigma.
      • Route to Market optimization – More effective cost-to-serve analytics and advanced channel/service segmentation.
    • Supply Chain Resilience

      Supply Chain Resilience helps organizations assess their risk exposure across Tier 1 and 2 suppliers while helping them develop their predictive analytics capability and an integrated risk management approach. It also helps companies manage increasing pressure to demonstrate environmental responsibility while balancing the needs of the business.

      • Supply chain risk and resilience – This is a cross-functional approach to total supplier reliability capability. We use analytics to provide ongoing broad risk assessment and management.
      • Supply chain sustainability – It is an integrated strategy leveraging all areas of value, including operations, tax, renewables, suppliers and customers, which is underpinned by robust analytics and systems that can track across the supply chain.
