Value Drivers for Sustainable Supply Chain & Manufacturing

Cost Reduction

cbs helps and advises you to identify your cost efficiency goals strategically and operationally, plan them in an integrative manner and tackle them head-on. We support you throughout the entire supply chain and manufacturing along the design-to-operate process from strategy to implementation.

Cost optimization is more than a one-time effort; it is an ongoing discipline focused on reducing spending while maximizing business value. It cannot be treated in isolation but must always be considered interactively to make informed targeted decisions for growth and transformation.

Review your current operating model with us to ensure that you have the optimal conditions, technologies and processes for efficient operation.

Delivery Performance

cbs specializes in helping companies improve the resilience and sustainability of their supply chains and mitigate disruptions and instabilities in the business process. We distinguish ourselves by positioning integrated business planning as a central element along the design-to-operate process in order to ensure on-time delivery in execution.

In this way, we achieve a synchronous axis between execution and planning via the seamless business process view in order to reflect awareness in the decision to be made and its consequences.

Design your target picture for your Design-2-Operate process with us and start with an outside-in view via our 360⁰ value chain assessment.

Quality Optimization

cbs enables a 360° perspective on the value chain to ensure quality through a comprehensive approach that includes various elements such as organization, processes, technology, and data.

To improve quality within the supply chain and manufacturing, cbs supports companies to develop innovative strategies and technologies that enable an optimal trade-off between efficiency, sustainability, and flexibility. This is referred to as mastering the “magic triangle” and is crucial for ensuring the future viability of global market leaders.

Inventory Management

cbs supports industrial manufacturing customers to identify untapped potential for improvement in their inventory optimization along the entire value chain, to define improvement measures and to optimize them sustainably.

Together, we analyze their individual objectives and framework conditions and develop optimal solutions that meet the requirements of the end-customers and suppliers. This enables corporations to find an optimal balance between delivery performance and inventory.

Start with our Inventory Health Check in combination with state-of-the-art Data-Process-Mining to identify inventory optimization potential within the value chain.

Intelligent Manufacturing

In a highly networked, increasingly dynamic world, it is becoming more and more difficult to make decisions due to a lack of experience and great uncertainty about the future. What will intelligent solutions look like in the future that enable quick decisions to be made in uncertain times?

An intelligent supply chain is characterized by the systematic collection and analysis of relevant data along the value chain. Algorithms and technologies help to identify dependencies and provide recommendations for action, including actuators that make automated adjustments.

We enable our customers to establish an intelligent supply chain requires a target image of how the stages of the value chain should interact with each other and what data is required for this. Within the roadmap to the digital supply chain, the individual fields can be implemented piece by piece and successively connected, depending on priority.
