Operational excellence through value stream integration, synchronization and data analytics
In today’s environment, business leaders are pressed to deliver more value-added goods and services for less. The global pandemic has laid bare the cracks in today's supply chain and operations model, forcing business to look again at their short-mid and long-term strategies. Survival depends on the ability to identify and plan for future risk events and quickly implement process improvements. Leadership needs an agile digitally-enabled supply chain and operations model that synchronizes procurement, manufacturing, logistics and fulfillment operations to anticipate demand. North American and European businesses are seeing the downside of depending too heavily on a limited number of offshore suppliers and manufacturers. In the short term, manufacturers are introducing increased flexibility to ensure continuity. In the mid to long term, many are giving greater consideration to the advantages of reshoring or near-shoring all or part of their manufacturing operations.
Board directors are already asking CEOs hard questions about how they will support recovery in FY2021, how they will be able to mitigate the risks that are still emerging, and how they will be able to identify new opportunities not just for survival, but for continued growth as well.

I would like to commend you for doing an outstanding job on our recent engagement to implement a Management Operating System and fast track a strategic procurement initiative to drive operational improvement in our business. The objectives were to drive double digit percentage improvement in our EBITDA by achieving 10% savings in our manufacturing costs and more than 5% savings on our raw material spend. I am pleased to say we met those objectives on time and within budget. Maine Pointe’s Total Value Optimization (TVO) and procedural approach, coupled with an accelerated schedule, were the key reasons behind our decision to move ahead with the engagement.”
