AVATA’s Health Check program performs an in-depth diagnostic that quickly evaluates your current supply chain landscape, pain-points, and objectives, to help you identify key opportunities and “quick wins” to improve your end to end supply chain cost & effectiveness.
The AVATA Health Check is a multi-faceted process that helps organizations identify opportunities and provides recommendations on ways to best achieve your supply chain goals and objectives.
The AVATA Health Check focuses on three critical areas:
- Systems: Effectiveness of your integrated applications and data that are used for planning and managing your supply chain
- Process: Understand the criticial elements of your processes inputs/outputs, how the processes are defined, linked and the related metrics. How are responsibilities mapped out along the process
- Financial: A peer to peer or industry comparison of your supply chain financial performance
Health Checks are tailored to your needs and areas of concerns. We can perform an extensive assessment covering all aspects of the Supply Chain (including key suppliers), or a more targeted project aimed at a specific function or department. AVATA’s senior experts conduct the supply chain Health Check through an array of tools including online assessments, interviews and workshops. The final outcome is an executive session reviewing the detailed findings and recommendations for improvement.
We work with your team to understand strategic and competitive business priorities. The current state is compared to industry best practices from a process, tool and financial perspective. Gaps are identified and actions for closing these gaps are prioritized. A roadmap for moving forward with an improvement plan for your supply chain is recommended and reviewed.
