Intelligent and sustainable operations

To navigate disruption and gain competitive advantage, industries are reimagining their supply chains and manufacturing with intelligent operations. This is a new world in which a digital and sustainable future will be enabled by technology and data.

As technology and global trends disrupt markets, industry leaders must address evolving needs for product and service customization, transparency and trust, new sales and delivery channels, and innovative business models. Industrial networks are being rebuilt and centralized to drive efficiency.

How do you find the right balance between customer satisfaction, sustainability, regulatory requirements, and efficiency? Add to this an avalanche of disruptive technologies, such as AI, demand sensing, digital twin, 5G, and autonomous objects, and the need to adapt is clear.

Our deep sector and functional expertise, and our unique combination of design, technology, and data science, help clients respond, regain operational agility, and capture market share. We empower sustainable, data-led operations with a focus on supply chain, smart plant, and industrial procurement.

What we do

To transform supply chains into competitive advantage, companies need resiliency and responsiveness, while delivering on commitments to sustainability and customer centricity.

To meet the demands of today’s connected consumers, industry leaders must enhance their supply chains. This means adapting to shifts in buying patterns and selling models, focusing on tailored experiences, meeting expectations for “need it now” delivery with real-time track & trace, and running sustainable operations.

Companies are under pressure to reduce costs and optimize service levels, while simultaneously building new business models. Data must be employed to drive informed decision making and enhance visibility, transparency, and resiliency.

We help our clients achieve end-to-end, customer-centric supply chain transformation through a combination of strategy and technology expertise, leveraging the latest in data, AI/machine learning, and automation. Our services support initiatives across demand/supply planning, inventory management, logistics, service/spare parts, and retail merchandizing.

Autonomous manufacturing brings significant performance and productivity gains. But how can organizations maximize the potential of smart plant capabilities at scale?

Factories today, whether discrete or process manufacturers, must leverage data and digital technologies to improve overall performance and agility on the journey to autonomous manufacturing. We help organizations transform with data-driven operations and digital continuity, enabling them to innovate, design, architect, and implement scalable solutions for specific business and industry challenges.

Our advanced data, AI, and machine learning skills and capabilities power real-time plant and asset monitoring and optimize production efficiency. Actionable insights can predict maintenance, anticipate demand fluctuations, and improve process flows. We also focus on the human side, using data and technology, such as wearables and AR/VR, to deliver a more efficient, productive, and safer work environment.

We partner with our clients to create their factory of the future and put sustainability at the heart of industrial operations.

Procurement efficiency and resilience are top priorities for enabling engineering, production, supply chain management, and finance to deliver sustainable business value and overall competitiveness.

Procurement transformation should be integral to any business strategy to deliver cost savings, spend transparency, and optimized working capital. Whether you are transforming the source-2-pay process, selecting new vendors, or deploying new (cloud) procurement systems, you need a resilient operating model, real-time visibility and expanded digital capabilities to ensure process agility.

Our Center of Excellence for procurement comprises a global network of functional experts with cross-sector expertise from over 40 countries. Combined with our strong partnerships and the latest technology, such as AI and RPA, we empower procurement with enhanced efficiency and visibility.

We support clients from digital strategy and innovation to digital procurement and sustainable operating model design. Our data-driven approach pre-empts and mitigates risk, improves collaboration, and provides greater cost-control.
