Planning and Management Methods for an Asia Supply Base
integrated into a Global Supply Chain

Softgoods or automotive industries are fast changing businesses, which depend strongly on the Consumer’s Demand.

To be proactive and react smartly, you need to know in advance what will happen; but how do you manage your supply base over great distances with long lead-times and plan the activity accordingly to when you don’t know what you will sell and need?

Classical methods of accuracy based and product level planning are not sufficient any longer. Hence we have developed a set of methods which still enable you to plan and manage global supply chains.

We will help you answer those questions and build the best planning with the adequate planning and management methods towards an optimized and enhanced global supply chain.
