A supply chain assignment example:

The problem of a manager:

An audit was requested for a packaging and distribution of sanitaryware products platform. This audit was required for a local sub-contracting company.

Information concerning delivery dates is sometimes given late and lacks accuracy.

There is a need for some strengthening of the information process, in order to give satisfaction to the final customer.

Need to control the evolution of selling prices

Need to review the purchasing process

How the 2 OTECI Consultants approached the problem:

Listening to the Manager’s concerns, with a first meeting within the company, meeting with the various executives.

Visit to the sub-contractor’s installations, and questions on their relationships with the originator (second meeting and visit)

Discussions on sensitive issues, for example inventory limitations for safety reasons, and discussions about the Purchasing process

Results and recommendations

Suggestion to set-up weekly information meetings, with a priority given to pragmatic solutions. These meetings will be organised

Suggestions to set-up an exchange of formal data

Need for the management to have a quick and full control of raw material purchasing process
