Supply Chain Planning and Execution

Life sciences companies today must look beyond managing supply chain costs to product security and integrity, improved forecasting and demand, and supply chain agility.

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

Supply chain pundits have been talking about S&OP and Integrated Business Planning for some time now. But when the rubber meets the road, many organizations aren’t able to reap the promised benefits of these approaches. All aspects of our supply chain planning and execution approach work together to set you up for an integrated supply chain.


Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) has long been the standard best practice for companies to align supply and market demand but this methodology doesn’t ensure that profitability is at the center of operational planning. Critical components, like executive sponsorship, execution capabilities, technology tools, and an integrated business planning approach are still lacking at many companies.

You can’t afford to make any mistakes in a life sciences supply chain. Your patients expect perfection when it comes to the availability and quality of their treatments.

  • Supply Network Design
  • Manufacturing Strategy
  • Strategic Metrics and KPIs
  • Planning Roadmap Design

Patient demand for responsibility, authenticity and transparency should not complicate your ability to protect and improve margins while providing the highest quality products.

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

Leveraging data analysis and technology integration can generate powerful insights to transform the life sciences value chain.

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