Value Chain Analysis

This is the Supply Change.™

Recovering money you didn’t know was lost.

The opportunity

You can’t really improve your operations until you can see them - until you can get a truly complete and holistic view. A view that spans silos, departments, facilities and regions, and extends beyond your four walls to your supply chain partners both upstream and downstream. Value Chain Analysis gives you that view. A view of goods, platforms and information - everything that moves in, through and out of every segment of your network. It lets you see - really see - what’s going on.

Over time, it’s likely that you’ve developed standard procedures for the different functions and processes of your supply chain. But behaviours may change within some processes, and operators may have deviated from standard operating procedures.

By giving you a complete view - a detailed physical map of every aspect, large and small, of your entire operation as it currently stands - we can help you find new ways to improve efficiencies, product quality and overall operating margins.

We can help you fix nd them and fix them by collaborating with you to conduct a Value Chain Analysis. An investigation and report that analyses your own network and those of your trading partners.
