End to End Supply Chain Assessment for a High-Tech Electronic Goods Manufacturer

Client Background & Challenges

An electronic goods manufacturer with high COGS and working capital costs engaged SSA to conduct an end to end supply chain assessment across Sourcing & Procurement to Fulfillment to identify inefficiencies in supply chain that were impacting their cash to cash cycle and working capital costs.

Approach & Analysis

SSA conducted a product portfolio review to identify opportunities for product rationalization and inventory reduction.

Results & Value to Client

SSA’s assessment yielded the following recommendations:

  • Opportunity to reduce inventory by up to 51% through improved forecasting, demand planning, supply/inventory planning, lead time reduction, product rationalization and consolidation, and reducing E&O
  • Improved Supply Chain costs by 24% through establishing a proactive end to end Quality organization, ultimately reducing warranty and expedited freight costs and streamlining the organization after process improvements have been sustained
  • Restructuring of the Procurement organization to include a commodity based sourcing group and comprehensive supplier metrics to reduce quality issues
