Our Case Studies for

Supply Chain and Operations Transformation

Our Methodology

for Supply Chain and Operations Transformation

The process starts with an assessment that helps build the as-is and to-be process models, along with the identification of any systems that need to be replaced. Followed by business and technical analysis, including changes in processes, data, or systems. And then, finally, the implementation and optimization.


This phase starts with the as-is and to-be analysis of the supply chain processes, current & future. It also analyzes current supply chain systems and architecture, as well as changes to the processes, master data, and integration points.

Solution Matrix Development and Technical Analysis

This phase takes a much deeper dive into business processes from the technical standpoint, including evaluating over 200 supply chain systems against critical success factors. The solution matrix is continuously revised while aligning the expectations of all stakeholders as the process advances. This phase also performs technical analysis of workflows, mappings, and integration points.


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.

Requirements Matrix and Business Process Analysis

This phase captures requirements in the as-is and to-be process models. It also identifies the critical success factors that will drive the RFP and vendor demonstrations (if a new supply chain solution needs to be implemented). If the changes are only related to the process and data, then the change analysis is performed, including designing workflows for each stakeholder impacted.

Solution Selection and Contract Negotiations

This phase would be a series of demos to evaluate the capabilities of a solution and align stakeholders in how their life would be with the new supply chain systems. After each demo, the stakeholders are briefed on the potential pros and cons of each solution. This phase might also include contract negotiation of the software and services agreement. This phase is optional if the process or data changes are the only ones required to solve supply chain issues.

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 supply chain processes and architecture have helped them hit their KPIs.This phase iterates until the stakeholders confirm the results from the new changes.
