1. Demand Management Diagnostic.

The Diagnostic examines the "as-is" process and compares it to the benchmarks and your industry accepted best practices to highlight areas of opportunity. We conduct a rapid diagnostic audit by studying key Performance Measures, build them where necessary, and by interviewing key employees and stakeholders. The deliverable is an ROI analysis for the re-engineering proposition and highlight areas of the supply chain that offer best returns for the effort. Learn more.
