71% of all supply chain strategies fail to deliver the expected results: why is this?

Supply Chain Management

False assumptions

False assumptions about key issues, confusing correlations with cause-and-effect relationships and the reluctance to face harsh realities.

Supply Chain Management

Lack of focus

When things are going wrong, it’s tempting to try to change everything. What is really important is to identify and focus on a limited number of key actions to deliver a powerful solution.

Supply Chain Management

Lack of buy-in

Unless every single person involved in a change understands why the change is necessary — what to change to, how to cause the change and what his/her specific role is within the overall picture — there is no real buy-in in a team.

Suppy Chain Management

Lack of alignment

Effectively communicating a strategic plan isn’t the same thing as ensuring alignment. Alignment means that everyone in the organization can clearly and accurately articulate how their own set of goals and tasks contribute to the strategic plan.

Suppy Chain Management

Poor execution

Strategy doesn’t implement itself. You need to have the right skill set, experience and time to execute. Many companies have so many projects that finding the time to do the necessary project work is one of the major challenges.

What can you do?

These are all preventable problems. OneChain ensures that the desired transformation of your production and supply chain occurs in the most sustainable way to improve your performance.

Advanced analytics

Most manufacturing and retail organizations produce an enormous amount of data. The amount of useful information which is harvested from all this data is typically rather small.

The main challenge is always to filter out the noise and get clear and relevant signals in order to gain new and deeper insights and to prepare and support better decisions.

In our experience, the key to getting better answers is to ask better questions – questions which are based on a thorough understanding of system dynamics in both manufacturing and retail organizations.

Our curiosity combined with the ability to dig deeper sets us apart from the rest.

OneChain uses a unique combination of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) Thinking Tools and the market leading BI Software from Tableau to build and deploy advanced analytics and reporting systems for its manufacturing and retail clients.

Successfully managing the supply chain

While each link in the supply chain plays an individual role, what’s most important is that good supply chain management ensures an overall seamless workflow. In supply chain management, the coordination and integration of various elements, processes, and departments, or even different companies must be brought together as one.

The management of multiple teams often poses real challenges. The reliability of everyone involved, be it within the company or through outsourcing to external consultants, is critical to the success of supply chain management.

To reduce in-house production depth, supply chain management is being deployed more frequently. In competitive world markets, the emphasis lies on short product life cycles, even shorter product launch deadlines, and customers with highly specialized requirements.

Anyone wishing to survive among the big players must ensure all parts of the supply chain work flawlessly. Managing an ever-growing number of stakeholders isn’t easy, but good supply chain management guarantees cost-efficiency, without negatively impacting the end product or consumer.

Advanced supply chain management optimizes each step of the process and, as a whole, shortens delivery times and drives down costs. The goal is that all elements along the value chain work together, so the product is always available for shipment, without maxing out on storage. This strategy reduces the storage fees and reduces the risk of high purchasing volumes. Supply chain management must accurately prioritize resources, so they can be released exactly as and when needed, particularly when financial resources and capacity planning is involved.

These basic aspects of supply chain management are applied in all production and trading companies, from small businesses to medium-sized enterprises to large international companies. The goal of supply chain management is often the same for all manufacturing and distribution companies: cost-efficiency, optimized processes, and fast, reliable deliveries to serve orders quickly and in the best possible way. Quality, productivity, and reliability are always the main focus.

Ultimately, even companies with an internal team of experts for supply chain management sometimes face seemingly insuperable tasks, and improving the company’s performance does not always seem feasible. However, an external view of the processes can provide a fresh perspective that will benefit the company most.

OneChain provides a spectrum of solutions to help with supply chain management and process optimization. Our expert team of supply chain consultants provides advice each step of the way.

Thanks to many years of experience, our experts know exactly what good supply chain management is needed to provide insight and improve the performance of the company.
