Supply Chain Planning and Execution

Despite your best efforts, supply chain planning activities still leave you in firefighting mode. Our supply chain approach focuses on helping you execute today and also plan for tomorrow.

Most supply chain planning methodologies sound too good to be true.

Is your organization, like other consumer products companies, unable to deliver the promised benefits from your supply and demand planning processes? Are forecasts rarely accurate? Are supply interruptions endless?


Your supply chain should not operate on its own. From network design and manufacturing strategy to an integrated planning approach and planning software implementation, we look at your supply chain as a singular organization inside the larger enterprise. At Clarkston Consulting, we prioritize and execute the planning solution most relevant to your business.

Start where your feet are – implementing a new planning process requires the right network, manufacturing strategy, and a well-designed plan for execution.

  • Supply Network Design
  • Manufacturing Strategy
  • Strategic Metrics and KPIs
  • S&OP Assessment
  • Planning Roadmap Design

The best strategic plans mean nothing without execution. More often than not, the biggest stumbling block to execution isn’t a time or resources problem, it’s an information problem.

  • Integrated Planning Approach
  • Technology Vendor Assessment
  • Real-Time Response Enablement
  • Demand Sensing and Shaping


Execution, especially when it requires integration between multiple systems, organizations, and vendors is difficult. We specialize in looking at the holistic picture and the smallest details to solve your biggest challenges.

  • Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)
  • Technology Integration (SAP, SAP IBP, Kinaxis, Logility, Blue Yonder)
  • Master Data Governance
  • Onboard vendors and contractors
