A proven supply chain methodology to get the orders out

Over the past week, retailers have had to overcome major hurdles with some experiencing a plummet in throughput volumes, while demand for others has skyrocketed by 500 per cent.

This has led to major supply chain challenges around space, processes, accuracy and speed. The ability to mitigate these challenges has been restricted due to the physical limitations of existing assets and circumstances this pandemic has brought, such as limited operations management on-site and compliance with social distancing and hygiene regulations.

The inability to effectively overcome challenges of this nature and magnitude can have a long-lasting negative impact on a company’s operational and financial performance and their reputation.

At TM Insight, we have experienced these challenges first-hand with our clients and understand that this situation can be devastating and overwhelming all at once.

To help companies during this time, we have created the TMI optimisation program GET THE ORDERS OUT. This is a four-week program that helps organisations to:

  • Cope with extraordinary throughput
  • Improve operational efficiencies whilst eliminating waste
  • Achieve a higher storage capacity from existing sites
  • Create offsite space solutions including short-term third-party logistics engagements
  • Reshaping of operations to capture quick wins and prepare for future structural change

During this program, we guide businesses through a proven supply chain management methodology that focuses on opportunities with the greatest return and least amount of effort.

This approach has helped us generate tangible results for clients:

  • Increase of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) of 47 per cent for a warehousing and transport company.
  • Successful implementation of a business continuity project for the Australian Trade and Investment Commission.
  • Optimisation, staff training and implementation of standard operating procedures for a discount retailer. Within six weeks, this led to an operating cost reduction of 7 per cent while increasing order accuracies to over 99 per cent and customer delivered-in-full-and-on-time (DIFOT) increase to over 98 per cent.
