How did SpendEdge Help the CPG Industry Client?

  • Step 1: Identifying internal and external supply chain risks

The first and the most crucial step in devising a supply chain risk management framework revolves around the identification of risk factors affecting the organization’s supply network. These risks include both external and internal risks such as supply-side risks, demand-side risks, business risks, environmental risks, and other physical risk factors. A detailed analysis of each identified risk factor helped identify scenarios that are likely to occur, it also enabled the client to answer essential questions such as why they occur and how can the company deal with such risks.

  • Step 2: Setting standards for the organization’s supply chain processes

Once the risk factors across the global supply network are identified and grouped into different categories it is necessary to take steps to incentivize the global supply network so as to make it function in the most suitable way to drive maximum value. This means utilizing more than just the traditional metrics and setting new supply chain standards to suit the functional needs of the business. However, identifying the right KPI’s is crucial for any business and revolves around the specific business needs, the market segment, market stability, and fluctuating demand.

In recent years, companies operating in various industries be it retail or CPG industry have realized the importance of maintaining a robust supply chain management system across their business segments. Players in these industries have also understood that it is the supply chain that deciphers business strategies into day-to-day interactions within and beyond the organizational level.
