Manufacturing & Supply Chain

Create a lasting impact in global manufacturing and supply chain operations

Use supply chain and manufacturing operations to create winning strategies

We guide clients through the design and implementation of operational strategies that will stand the test of time, while creating agility and a product portfolio that is commercially and operationally optimized. An interdisciplinary approach—drawing insights from commercial, marketing, IT and digital, and product design—helps clients to unlock next-level productivity gains.

Take a holistic approach to transformation to capture end-to-end value

We show clients how to drive the next S-curve to discover value that is hidden at the intersection of functions—even well-performing ones. More than digitizing operations, we leverage digital and analytics to fundamentally rethink and innovate manufacturing and supply chain operations.

Transform manufacturing processes for better productivity

We help organizations to significantly boost both productivity and effectiveness of core processes, through offerings that encompass everything from digital diagnostics to plant transformations, order management, asset productivity, predictive maintenance, resource-production manufacturing, and lean warehousing.

Boost operational health by identifying skill gaps and building capabilities

Successful manufacturing requires a sweeping upgrade of skills and capabilities, as manufacturers compete with new and agile “digitally native” competitors. We partner with clients to build foundational enablers and develop skills through capability building to create rapid and sustained impact.

Foster a quality culture to create competitive advantage

We help our clients to consistently meet and exceed customer expectations at every touchpoint through benchmarking, developing quality and compliance strategies, and remediation services across the entire value chain and product life cycle.

Leverage digital and autonomous supply chain opportunities

We help clients leverage the opportunities of supply chain 4.0 by incorporating IoT, robotics, and analytics—resulting in a system that allows organizations to react quickly—improving both company performance and customer satisfaction. This digitally connected ecosystem and real-time visibility assists in the removal of silos across the supply chain function, resulting in lower costs, smaller inventories, and fewer lost sales.
