MfG (Manufacturing) & Consumer Products
In today’s global economy and an increasingly competitive environment – you need every edge to stay ahead. There is a constant challenge to keep pace with rapidly changing consumer needs with the new law of the business jungle – disrupt or be disrupted.
In this progressively fast moving and complex environment, margins are coming under increasing pressure. There is a need to be faster, more agile and more responsive. There is a requirement for new business models, new ways of working, and in some cases long term structural change is necessary.
We help Manufacturers and Consumer Product firms to maintain their relentless focus on cost efficiency throughout the supply chain and all that it entails in supply chain integration, component Outsourcing, location strategies, distribution models, and price optimisation. However to really thrive in the new age on-demand economy then companies have got to be world-class at managing Change and they are going to need to innovate.
Innovation though doesn’t need to be purely focused on open-source development models, realising the potential of 3D printing, leveraging the Internet of Things (IOT), using digitalisation to engage customers, the use of more adaptive manufacturing or adopting a manufacturing on demand approach. It also needs to be used in the back office and in the support services to provide a more agile and nimble organisation, one that can flex with demand. This equally means you need the right Service Providers on the right contract, incentivised to do the right things – Service Providers that you can count on to flex and scale with demands of your business.
We help our Clients across all aspects of the business enterprise to get the most out of each function, maximising the ‘bang for the buck’, through reviewing their operating models and using Sourcing strategies to deliver sustainable competitive advantage. We help you to answer the key questions – How do we increase profitability? How can we reduce costs further? How can we avoid investment costs? How do we stay relevant? How can we get to where we want to be quicker?
