Supply Chain Consulting and Interim Manager

Optimising the value chain in supply chain management

Fischer & Partner Executive Solutions was founded over a decade ago by 2 top supply chain experts. Since then, numerous mandates with a focus on supply chain management have been successfully implemented for clients, whereby our range of services for supply chain optimisation also extends to adjacent functional areas such as purchasing, materials procurement, distribution, logistics and production.

For many years, we have mastered the entire range of levers in the value chain, from product development to procurement, distribution and delivery to our clients’ customers.

Find out which solution concepts the SCM experts at F&P Executive Solutions AG can use to structurally improve your company’s entire supply chain (Supply Chain Optimisation) or remove it from your company (Logistics Outsourcing) by integrating the above interfaces.

Both solution concepts are not only developed and financially evaluated through careful analysis, but also implemented sustainably through effective project management. As a result, global corporations and medium-sized market leaders have benefited greatly from our concepts in their implementation.

The market conditions of the supply chain

Especially in the case of fast-moving consumer goods, operational brilliance is therefore crucial to the success of a consumer goods manufacturer. Rapid supply of goods, high availability despite reduced capital-binding inventories and the reduction of inventory levels are priority goals that must be achieved. For capital goods, the set screws are different.

Industrial groups strive to manage the balancing act between tight inventories to optimise warehousing costs, efficient customer delivery and maximising goods availability.

Supply chain management goals

Globalisation and growing customer demands pose enormous challenges to corporate groups and medium-sized companies along the entire value chain.

The requirements in terms of costs, quality, flexibility and speed demand a realignment of supply chain strategies, processes and systems. In the fierce competition for the best possible products, companies are always striving to guarantee their customers and end consumers the best possible service, on-time delivery of their unique products. Empty shelves in drugstores and selected supermarkets with the best-known branded products make it clear that even top companies cannot guarantee that there will not be a shelf gap that needs to be closed.

Advantages of SCM optimisation

  • Cost advantage
  • Strong competitive advantages
  • Customer satisfaction through perfect supply structures (delivery time and costs) and perfect customer service
