Supply chain management

The holistic and efficient design of increasingly complex global supply chains is a necessary requirement for a company’s long-term competitiveness. Flows of goods, materials, and information between the various partners of the supply chain must be optimized in order to satisfy customer requirements and ensure cost-effectiveness. As a result, supply chain management (SCM) focuses on the economic planning and optimization of logistics processes, taking into consideration the principles of lean management.  

When it comes to supply chain management, our experts offer support in the key areas of supply chain planning, inventory management, lean logistics, and outsourcing. Supply chain planning may involve redesigning the supply chain following a new strategic alignment in production and/or logistics. Creating the highest possible level of transparency can be an efficient way to minimize fluctuations in the supply chain, reducing inventory and optimizing the use of resources. This is connected to inventory management, which aims to determine the optimal inventory ranges to reduce tied-up capital while ensuring the desired level of product availability. Lean logistics includes the development of logistics systems with the overall goal of avoiding the wastage of resources. This principle is consistently applied to every stage of the supply chain. In the area of outsourcing, Ingenics offers support with respect to the preparations leading up to out-sourcing decisions and takes control of tender management – from creation of a tender document to the election of a service provider. On the service provider side, Ingenics offers consulting during the bid proposal stage and the initial phase of collaboration with the customer, also helping to achieve the efficiency improvement targets set out in the contract.
