Effective Supply Chain Strategy
Designing and translating the corporate vision into supply chain strategies allows companies achieving high performance both in traditional supply chains and service operations. A supply chain strategy should be aligned with that of the overall business. Misaligned supply chain strategies can create issues detrimental to customer service and profitability.
Supply Chain Value Transformation and Optimization
Many companies are struggling to adapt to these new market forces without losing efficiency or adding cost into their supply chains. Some mergers may result in a surplus of assets and facilities, excess inventory, or distribution networks no longer appropriate for a consolidated business operation. TQM assists clients to identify the most effective channels and integrate them by way of an optimal and profitable strategy to unlock the values in supply chain processes and service operations through a transformation journey.
Process & Quality Improvement through Excellent Supply Chain Management
TQM conducts reviews on daily operations and sets Corporate Goals and Key performance index (KPI) to improve production efficiency of suppliers by eliminating unnecessary production time, resolve the bottleneck problems of production line and set up plan of labour efficiency improvement. Also, by strengthening the quality testing mechanism, TQM assists suppliers to improve product quality significantly.
TQM also strives to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of departmental procedures in management and planning; as well as the entire supply chain (including suppliers, subcontractors, service providers and internal/external customers). Positive attitudes and collaborative efforts from different levels of employees (i.e. managers and other staffs) are highly valued and emphasized. Thus, we empower employees to support and adapt to the reform by providing effective workplace counseling and training in time of changes in client companies.
