Network Optimization

An in-depth network optimization examines your entire supply chain, from raw materials to end customer. Your company should consider a network optimization any time it experiences one or more of the following:

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Growth or consolidation
  • Product or market expansion
  • Customer demand shift
  • Change in focus or management

After we’ve completed your network optimization, you’ll be able to examine any number of scenarios. You’ll also be able to better understand what costs drive the optimization and why.

We can include any number of data points in the optimization, including bill of materials, capacity and utilization, fixed and variable facility costs and transportation costs.

Many times the obvious costs may not be the true drivers when all of these factors are considered in the study.
