Our typical supply chain audit process:

 

  1. Analysis: We conduct a thorough analysis of the full supply chain, including stakeholder interviews, data gathering, operational reviews, and market research.
  2. Synthesis: Drawing together all data sets and findings into a SWOT analysis, benchmarking against category norms, and reviewing current processes against best practices.
  3. Hypothesis: We conclude the audit report with identification of risks, recommendations, opportunities for savings, and an improvement action plan.
