Supply Chain Management (SCM)
Our supply chain management (SCM) team help clients to better manage the flow of goods and services. We include all processes that transform raw materials into final products.
For us, SCM involves the active streamlining of a business's supply-side activities to maximise customer value and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
SCM represents an effort by suppliers to develop and implement supply chains that are as efficient and economical as possible by looking at everything from production to product development to the information systems needed to direct these undertakings.
SCM capability within business today takes on a much more significant role in enabling business to gain competitive advantage and deliver bottom line performance. As companies strive to identify their competitive edge, the application of supply chain concepts continues to exert greater influence on overall business success.
We look at a wide range of topics in supply chain strategies including design, planning, operations and development. We emphasise the perspective of integrated supply process. Releasing value in business through relationship management, cost reduction and lean supply are also key considerations.

SCM is based on the idea that nearly every product that comes to market results from the efforts of various organisations that make up a supply chain. Although supply chains have existed for ages, most companies have only recently paid attention to them as a value-add to their operations
