Chicago Consulting designs optimal supply chains.
We are supply chain consultants, strategists and engineers. By designing strategies for our clients’ supply chains, we help them increase market share and earnings.
We have developed advanced tools to engineer supply chains. These tools include several computer applications that optimize specific components and that are unique to supply chain consultants. Our most advanced tools optimize warehouse networks and inventories. Others quantify the relationship between customer satisfaction and market share in competitive markets.
Our inventory deployment optimization method is used in some of America’s largest supply chains. Our USA clients have included Ameritech, Amoco Oil, Brunswick, Bordens, Case, Converse, Cummins Engine, Emerson Electric, FMC, General Motors, W. W. Grainger, Helene Curtis, Honda, Navistar, Johnson Controls, L’Oreal, Kraft Foods, Honeywell, Mobay Chemical, Occidental Petroleum, Panasonic, Ralston Foods, S. C. Johnson & Sons, Sony, Union Carbide, Universal Studios, USG and many others.
Optimal Supply Chains
Optimal supply chains will always provide better service and at lower cost then other (non-optimal) supply chains. The basis of our strategy and design is two-fold—the performance of the supply chain and the cost to operate it. By performance we mean the service the supply chain provides and the contribution it makes to top line objectives of increased sales. We specialize in engineering supply chains that increase performance and decrease costs at the same time.
Optimal supply chains will always provide better service and at lower
cost then other (non-optimal) supply chains.
Optimal supply chain management does two things:
- Provide the highest possible service for any given operation
cost or budget.
- Require the lowest possible operations cost for any given
Supply chains are composed of several components...as follows:
- Warehouse networks
- Inventory deployment
- Order processing
- Customer relationships
- The systems that operate these functions
It's important to optimize the entire supply chain because optimizing
just one component may miss opportunities to reduce costs and
improve service in other components.
No other supply chain consultants have the breadth, depth and scope of experience. Call us and explore the possibilities.
