Our Methodology

for Inventory, Warehousing, and Logistics Optimization

The process starts with an assessment to identify the KPIs and processes that might be causing inventory, warehousing, or logistics planning issues. Once identified, a thorough root cause analysis is performed. And then, as-is and to-be process models are built, including aligning all the stakeholders about the impact on their areas. And the changes that need to be made with processes, data, and systems to recalibrate planning.

Inventory Warehouse Logistics Optimization


This phase starts with identifying the KPIs and processes that might be causing planning issues. This phase also proposes several options and their pros and cons, along with the business case. An option that is least financially and technically risky is chosen for the next step.


This step implements the changes identified, whether they are going to be system, process, or data related. This phase could be divided into multiple phases and milestones depending upon the complexity of each change, including the identification of KPIs and how the changes would be measured after each step.

Root Cause Analysis

This step is a deeper dive into the chosen options and tracing processes and data that might be impacting KPIs. Through the interviews with different stakeholders, appropriate as-is and to-be process models are identified that are agreed upon by all the stakeholders.

Adoption and Optimization

Post implementation, this step helps in gathering feedback from the users if the initiative is aligned with their expectations, as well as whether the new inventory, warehouse, and optimization techniques have helped them hit their KPIs. This phase iterates until the stakeholders confirm the results of the new changes.
