MSI has provided a range of services including supply chain and process improvement multinational clients from the pharmaceutical sector.
Global Supply Chain Optimization
A multinational pharmaceutical company sought to improve the utilization and optimization of its manufacturing assets at several production lines around the globe. As a first step, the client required a baseline assessment of its operations so that a further benchmark analysis could be performed to assess the company's performance against industry best practice.
MSI consultants conducted site assessments at each of the manufacturing sites to map their current processes. These processes were compared to internal standard operating procedures and industry best practice. The identified gaps were then analyzed to determine the cost and potential return on investment of eliminating these gaps.
MSI's supply chain assessment revealed important gaps between the company's current processes and industry best practices. The subsequent elimination of these gaps led to significant reductions in work-in-process inventories, manufacturing lead-times, and asset optimization.
