Supply Chain and Operational Excellence

Extensive experience improving complex supply chains in a variety of industries

Supply chain management has become the centerpiece for organizations that know how to optimize their strategy, relationships, and processes.

Whether you are looking for a specific function to improve or a broad assessment of areas to focus on, let us partner with you on a right-sized engagement that moves your organization forward!

To begin the engagement, we typically conduct a Supply Chain Rapid Maturity Assessment, which identifies areas your supply chain can improve performance. The outcome will include recommendations for your supply chain that are appropriate to your organization’s needs.

Supply Chain Strategy & Transformation

Setting up for Long-Term Success

Improving both existing supply chain operations as well as new product launch starts with setting a goal and determining a strategy for how to achieve it. Our consultants have years of experience working with supply chains around the world by measuring their maturity and determining an optimal strategy and implementation plan for improvement.

As part of the Plaster Group Supply Chain Rapid Maturity Assessment we work closely with you to understand maturity levels across different supply chain categories to identify the most problematic constraints or “weakest links” that impede the achievement of your supply chain goals. Removing this “weakest link” is the most effective way to improve performance.

Better Business Decisions Through Data
End-to-end supply chain visibility is a popular concept today especially with the increased globalization for companies of all sizes. Visibility to your supply chain is key to supporting complete S&OP processes and improved supply and demand planning. It is essential to support the automation of physical, financial and system flows across the supply chain.

Our consultants work across partners, providers and contractors to ensure that data is successfully translated and managed to ensure that appropriate decisions can be made. Regardless if the problem is excess or short inventory, service disruptions or lack of system capacity, our consultants have encountered and implemented sustainable solutions.
