Supply Planning & Inventory Management
Each organization has unique challenges it is managing based on the makeup of its supply chain – location and use of manufacturing assets, use of contract manufacturers, capacity limitations, and commitments to clients. AVATA clients leverage their data and Oracle solutions to provide answers to these questions in a repeatable, straightforward solution that replaces the myriad of spreadsheets that no longer support the team.
Sales & Operations / Integrated Business Planning
Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) is more than a process – it is a culture change. AVATA’s S&OP practice helps our clients address S&OP in a way that drives true strategic value and engages the company’s executive team as well as key S&OP process constituents.
Supply Chain Assessments & Industry Benchmarking
Leveraging AVATA’s decades of supply chain experience, tools and methodology, we can quickly understand your supply chain pain-points, and quantify how well your supply chain is performing across several key financial metrics as compared to industry peers. This will help develop the business case including financial justification to set forth a strategic and/or tactic supply chain roadmap.
AVATA works with our industrial manufacturing clients to:
- Define the goals and outcomes of supply chain planning for the organization.
- Provide a clear picture of the company’s strengths and opportunities in regard to all supply chain dimensions: S&OP, Demand Management, Supply Planning, Inventory Management, and Scheduling.
- Leverage Oracle technology in a pragmatic way to sustain supply chain gains over time.
