Supply Chain Transformation

The Supply Chain Transformation solution helps you balance business needs with ever-growing customer expectations. We can help you move from linear to connected ecosystems of partners, suppliers and alliances, towards fully autonomous supply chains that drive innovation and business growth.

Your business challenge

Delivering on customer promises while meeting business expectations on cost, profit and sustainability is a major challenge for enterprises across the globe today — especially in the face of constant disruption including climate, market, trade, political and regulatory changes and volatility. Companies clearly see the need to increase supply chain resilience and to navigate major disruptions such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

Does your supply chain:

  • Provide visibility beyond tier one suppliers?
  • Leverage technology and automation to keep costs down and speed up service delivery?
  • Utilize data analytics to better forecast and predict what happens next?
  • Balance costs, growth and sustainability?
  • Perform with agility when disruptions occur?
  • Focus on sustainability, looking across the full ecosystem?

Solution benefits

Enterprises that digitally transform their supply chain are more responsive to customers, capable of measuring their environmental impact, able to keep their operating costs lower and enjoy higher employee engagement.

  • Improve service through enhanced response capabilities
  • Lower inventory, working capital and operating costs
  • Gain a smaller carbon footprint through energy-efficient warehouses, transportation networks and manufacturing plants

Solution features and functionality

  • Integrated business planning connects sales, marketing, finance, procurement and operations to optimize cost, service and inventory trade-offs. It focuses on all areas of planning, from long-term and strategic through mid-term and into execution.

    • Segmented and synchronized end-to-end planning — ensured by EY VC Sync analytics – to align supply with customers, separate demand signals from market noise and enable step changes for service, inventory and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
    • Digital planning transformation, advanced monetization, integrated business planning (IBP) and scenario modeling – leveraging leading technologies, e.g., robotic process automation (RPA), simulation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to improve outcomes for forecasting and planning and reduce planners’ efforts.
    • Proctor and Gamble (P&G) alliance — allows EY teams to accelerate service delivery with P&G’s Integrated Work System (IWS) which helps drive continuous improvement in cost, cash, people, customer service and sustainability metrics.
    • End-to-end visibility — leveraging data to provide real-time insights to shift from reactive to proactive decision-making and better connect the supply chain with the entire business.
    • Operating model transformation — building end-to-end connections, core capability centers, automation and standards in support of a transition to next-generation planner roles e.g., “citizen developers”.
