The new digital supply chain is more agile, accurate, and accessible across the board. Forecasts today are 65% more accurate than before, and they're produced in just a couple of weeks.
The company now enjoys enhanced visibility into contract manufacturer (CM) operations. It can now view and use CMs' manufacturing capacity and component constraints to create a more balanced supply plan. In addition, the firm has achieved better control over – and a clearer picture of – inventory levels.
The result: it can plan more efficiently and deploy its people more effectively. With the new system in place, the company has cut its headcount by 20%.
The right combination of people, process, and technologies was key to the project's success. Our methodology and delivery approach, alongside supply-chain-specific innovations in AI and machine learning, all worked together to surpass expectations.
The client is so happy that it is looking to expand the success of this project to other product segments and regions in the next phase. And we're looking across the organization together to identify more areas of improvement that can be automated, digitized, and integrated in the future.
