FEATURED CASE STUDY: SUPPLY CHAIN INVENTORY ASSESSMENT
A Fortune 100 Consumer Packaged Goods company (CPG) wanted to conduct a Supply Chain
Planning Inventory Assessment for a CPG division they recently acquired from a pharmaceutical
firm. They wanted to validate inventory synergies for legacy products and to conduct
a capability analysis. The company had already completed a due diligence analysis
of inventory savings, but needed an expert to validate these initial estimates and
develop an actionable plan to realize the savings.
The company's existing staff did not have the bandwidth to do this assessment internally.
They needed a temporary subject matter expert that could work with their existing
staff to conduct the analysis for them in a short period of time.
The company engaged OnDemand Resources to retain a temporary consultant for their
project. OnDemand Resources provided the client with three screened and qualified
candidates matched to their requirements within 48 hours of their request. The client
selected OnDemand partner Elgin, a candidate with over 11 years of experience in
supply chain management to conduct the inventory assessment for them.
OnDemand partner Elgin kicked off the project in January, and completed the analysis
in May. He focused on two pre-defined inventory categories that the company identified
and recognized a total of $69 million in inventory savings - $19 million beyond
the pre-close company estimate. He also outlined a step-by-step plan on how to achieve
the additional savings with recommendations based on industry-standard best practices.
OnDemand Partner Elgin came on as a subject matter expert and identified $69 million
in inventory savings - nearly 40% above expectations - and provided a step-by-step
plan to achieve these savings.
"Elgin did an outstanding job! He laid the groundwork with his inventory analysis
which resulted in significant inventory reduction."
