Business Process Optimization
Efficient and robust business processes are essential to keeping a company´s competitiveness in the market place. This applies to supply chain processes, bring to market processes, as well as the supporting business processes. Despite its importance to overall company success, a lagging process performance often remains undiscovered – be it due to inherent complexities, be it due to lack of supporting analysis tools.
Key questions to be treated in this context often start at defining which processes or sub processes in fact are most relevant to overall business performance, how to best identify and evaluate gaps, how to close them effectively and efficiently – and, how to prioritize a series of relevant options under the constraint of generally limited resources.
Possible concrete topics include:
- Demand Forecast Improvement
- Process Compatibility Assessment
- Procurement Process Optimization
- Manufacturing Process Optimization
- Sales Process Optimization
- Centralization of Transactional Processes
- Transferring Production Processes
We work together with our clients to run a comprehensive process analysis, to do the macro and detailed mapping, and to analyze the relevant KPIs. Performance gaps and bottlenecks are identified and prioritized. As a final result, options for action and concrete action plans are developed for implementation. As in all our service offerings, we generally participate in putting plans into action with our clients.
