Supply chain strategy

How to create a roadmap for future profits

Operations due dilligence

MYSIGMA support clients who are in the process of completing an acquisition or strategic improvement initiative by conducting a detailed analysis and assessment of the business in question. Factors to evaluate include organization and culture, customers and markets, manufacturing operations, production and material flow, inventory management, supplier base, people and talent, distribution networks, etc.

The outcome of an operations due diligence process documents the primary causes of poor performance as well as new, undiscovered opportunities and areas for improvement. Directions are given for structuring successful improvement efforts to achieve next level results.

Post-merger integration & relocation

To support the overall business strategy, the supply chain strategy must be aligned. One important aspect of the supply chain strategy is how to integrate and maximize the synergies when two companies merge. MYSIGMA has helped several clients with post-merger integration in order to strengthen the combined competitiveness from a supply chain perspective.

Many times the location of manufacture is key. When deciding on location it’s important to evaluate the entire supply chain and consider both operational and strategic aspects. MYSIGMA have supported many clients in this process, starting with the business case and working all the way through to the realization of the relocation.

Manufacturing and distribution footprint

Numerous clients have been supported by MYSIGMA to find their optimal footprint solution. Our approach relies heavily on establishing the requirements the supply chain and manufacturing network must serve, by looking into the future rather than focusing on current conditions. Areas of potential future change include e.g. shifts in required lead times or shifts in volume growth in geographic markets.

Finding the optimum network design is beneficial in terms of e.g. lower product cost, alignment with major customers as they relocate to low cost countries, and improved margins when mastering the difference in costs as compared to the competition.
