The supply chain is a very important part of the total value chain of a company and a significant source of competitive advantage. Business leaders have come to understand that their supply chain is the backbone of their business and an enabler for their business strategy. Organisations are moving away from focusing their supply chain efforts on functional excellence to leveraging their supply chain as a strategic capability.
The supply chain service offering of NWCC consists of four core capabilities that form the functional backbone of the supply chain, and a set of integrated perspectives to manage the supply chain and make strategic decisions. NWCC Supply Chain & Operations offerings aim at leveraging your supply chain as a source of competitive advantage. The core capabilities encompass supply chain planning, sourcing & procurement, operations and logistics & distribution. These are the main building blocks of an effective supply chain, covering functional knowledge to run business processes, instruments to make tactical decisions, and frameworks to make strategic trade-offs. Through the strategic perspectives, an integrated approach is used to help you allocate resources and make structural long term decisions across the core capabilities to ultimately realise business unit objectives. NWCC has expertise in defining an overall supply chain strategy, setting up a suitable supply chain operating model and network, building in pliability in your supply chain and securing its tax effectiveness.
Within the structural boundaries set by the strategic decisions, the value added by the supply chain core capabilities can be maximised by taking several management perspectives into account. Each of the management perspectives brings a unique yet complimentary way to look at the supply chain, comprising distinct manners of measuring and reporting, of taking actions and offsetting objectives.
These service offerings are focused on achieving operational excellence, optimising cost-to-serve, minimising working capital, managing proactively through analytics and effectively mitigating supply chain risks. NWCC assists clients across all industries, private and public, to develop and implement strategies and operational improvement projects, within their own organisation as well as within their extended supply chain network. Your organisation will benefit from NWCC ’s industry knowledge, focus on result and integrated approach, which covers the people, process and system dimensions.
NWCC offers services related to the core supply chain capabilities, plan-source-make-deliver: Supply Chain Planning Supply chain planning aims at predicting future requirements to balance supply and demand. From a strategic perspective, companies have to take into account the available capacity in their network, the required flexibility to react to demand signals or supply chain risks and the alignment between organisational departments, in order to be able to plan their supply chain effectively. The extended supply chain (including suppliers, co-manufacturers/ co-packagers) needs to be fully integrated to allow leveraging of all available assets and deliver maximum value against optimal costs. Companies should thus build integrated supply chain planning processes ranging from the long term strategic planning, sales & operations planning, to the day-to-day operational planning. From a management perspective, effective execution of your planning cycle faces the ongoing challenge of achieving the right demand-supply balance with an optimal inventory level, by applying intelligent analytics features and by taking the appropriate risk management decisions.
NWCC offers end-to-end Supply Chain Planning capabilities to help you address these strategic and operational challenges. This results in a synchronised supply chain, both internally and externally, with your customers and supply chain partners. Improved supply chain planning generates benefits such as reduced inventory levels, lower cost of goods sold, shorter planning cycle times, improved customer service and better forecasting ability & market responsiveness.
