This involves analysing current processes, identifying areas for improvement, and recommending solutions to enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and minimise risks.

oProcess Optimization: Help manufacturers streamline their processes by evaluating inventory management systems, warehouse layouts, transportation logistics, and production planning. By optimising these processes, manufacturers can improve productivity, reduce waste, and enhance overall operational performance.

Risk Mitigation: Assist manufacturers in identifying potential risks and developing risk mitigation strategies. This  include identifying vulnerabilities in the supply chain, implementing contingency plans, and establishing alternative sourcing options. By proactively addressing risks, manufacturers can enhance their resilience and minimise disruptions to their operations.

Sustainable Practices: Contributing to the development and implementation of sustainable practices within the manufacturing process. This involves identifying opportunities for waste reduction,  waste management, energy efficiency and responsible packaging.  

Capacity Building: Introducing capacity building initiatives by providing training and knowledge transfer to manufacturers to  help them develop internal capabilities to manage their supply chain effectively. By equipping manufacturers with the necessary skills and knowledge, the strategist can empower them to sustain and further enhance their supply chain operations in the long run.
