Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management

We are facing the greatest change in supply networks in recent decades. The globalisation of the world economy has led to a division of labour and complex networking of value chains. Supply is closely interlocked and synchronised. In this globalised world, supply chains and logistics processes are in constant change.

For years, supply chains have been increasingly disrupted by crises, trade conflicts, shortages of raw materials, parts or transport. Inflation, energy price increases, decarbonisation and geopolitical relocation will add to the pressure on supply chains.

This will further increase supply volatility and reduce the resilience of global supply chains. As a result, securing supply will become a decisive success factor in industry, trade and logistics. And necessarily, mastering and controlling supply chains (supply chain management) will become the new key competence for companies.

In order to keep up with current trends and developments, responsiveness, adaptability and agile supply chain management are necessary. In this context, transparency and digitalisation are becoming the drivers for the ability to provide information, delivery capability and reliability. However, while Industry 4.0 and digitalisation have become a living reality in all areas of our modern society, supply chains often still suffer from analogue challenges.

KORN CONSULT GROUP supports companies in successfully overcoming the challenges in supply chain management – reactively and preventively.

Reactive solutions

KORN CONSULT GROUP actively supports the securing and stabilisation of supply through monitoring, bottleneck control and claiming of critical components (trouble shooting).

KORN CONSULT GROUP examines organisational measures to strengthen the company’s own resilience in supply (resilience check), e.g. with regard to

– Transparency and monitoring of suppliers and supply chains and increasing the ability to identify supply problems at an early stage (agility)

– Flexibility, i.e. the ability to react quickly to supply problems with preparatory reaction patterns, e.g. through risk management or cross-departmental task force organisation

– Reviewing sourcing strategies (single, double, local), relocation and regionalisation of procurement if necessary, with special attention to rising logistics costs and supply risks

– Strengthening cooperation with suppliers and partners through process integration, digitalisation and sustainable agreements on planning and flexibility (close collaboration)
