Inventory reductions

A CEO who was running a business with 750 million $ of revenue and 180 million $ of inventories once told us:

“Reducing inventory is easy, I just ask my people to order less. Anybody can do it. Reducing inventories while maintaining availability is extremely hard. We never managed both things at the same time.”

OneChain has developed tools for reducing inventories significantly while at the same time increasing availability. Our solutions work in both make to/purchase to availability and make to/purchase to order environments. With OneChain’s solutions, customers get the best of both worlds, significantly lower inventories, improved cash flow and higher availability, enabling better service levels and higher sales.

Our customers operate in diverse industries and geographies and achieve inventory reductions between 20% and 35% while closing the availability gap. Typically, customers operating with 80% availability/reliability can achieve 90% and customers who operate with 90% availability/reliability achieve 95%.

Increased availability & reliability

As product portfolios are increasing and variability of demand is also going up it becomes even more challenging to increase product availability and assure delivery performance significantly without increasing inventories.

OneChain has developed tools for aligning all activities within the production and supply chains. With these tools, customers can easily identify and address the constraints in their systems. This allows for a focused approach which enables fast and sustainable performance improvements.

For manufacturing companies, OneChain offers a capacity based planning and execution control system which aligns all levels of the production and supply chain. In addition, we offer a sophisticated capacity and availability based due date quotation tool.

For retail companies, OneChain offers an agile purchasing and execution control system which aligns all levels of the supply chain.

pro

Productivity

As in most markets competition is growing more than ever, a company’s long term survival depends on its ability to continually increase productivity. Increasing local productivity is relatively easy. Increasing productivity in such a way that the results will be visible in the bottom line is much harder.

Will all local productivity increase lead to an increase in the productivity and profitability of the organization? Unfortunately not. Many local productivity improvements will only lead to higher inventories and higher costs in other areas of the system.

Based on the time-tested principles of the Theory of Constraints (TOC), OneChain has developed tools which allow its customers to first easily identify and then focus on the improvement of the productivity of its few constraints. This approach will always lead to an increase in the productivity and profitability of the entire organization.

crises

Crisis intervention & resolution

OneChain provides reliable solutions in crisis intervention, even when a company’s previous efforts have failed.

We tackle crises such as the following:

  • Inability to ship enough orders due to process change or warehouse merging
  • Severe cash flow problems caused by capital tied up in raw materials
  • Unfinished goods or loss of customers caused by long lead times
  • Exploding costs from overtime and expediting
  • Inability to increase output enough to meet growing market demand or corporate targets

OneChain has helped big and small companies with these crises many times, with great success. We achieve in weeks and months what competitors struggle to do in quarters and years because we have the right toolkit and the experience to use it efficiently. The biggest reward for us is seeing teams we’ve worked with feel proud for solving the “unsolvable”.
