When you want to optimize procurement and supply chain in an organization, it is important to have a clear understanding of the baseline. A typical optimization process with Prokura often starts with a diagnostic of the organization’s purchasing and supply chain processes. An assessment is made of the challenges and optimization potential within the organization.
We have developed our own specialized range of analytical tools for both purchasing and supply chain. Here is a brief introduction to our methods, but you are always welcome contact us for more information.Contact us
When we conduct a procurement diagnostic, we use a structured and analytical model. We examine the organization's current procurement to get an accurate picture of both the baseline and optimization potential. This structured approach allows us to implement a procurement diagnostic in a very short time - typically between 2-4 weeks.
There are several different options available to a firm that wants to optimize its procurement processes. At the strategic level, we typically optimize purchasing based on category projects.
At the operational level, we aim to minimize inventory costs and ensure that the payment terms are optimal.
It typically takes 8 weeks to complete a supply chain diagnostic and involves a number of quantitative and qualitative analyses to help us identify various optimization opportunities. Our starting point considers how a firm can potentially optimize performance by focusing on cost, delivery time, quality and flexibility.
Effective supply chain optimization requires an assessment of the challenges faced in a variety of areas; from ordering of the necessary raw materials right through to final delivery of the finished product. We take a practical approach, focusing on time, costs, quality and flexibility.
Warehousing and distribution is a key function in a wide range of organizations across different industries. This is especially the case in manufacturing and wholesale businesses where the optimal functioning of logistics for incoming and outgoing goods is crucial. Optimizing warehousing and distribution typically takes place from a desire to reduce costs and ensure that a lower level of capital is tied up in stock - without sacrificing delivery speed.
Transportation represents a very significant cost item in most businesses and organizations; sometimes 10-20% of the total cost of a product. When we optimize a company’s transportation set-up, we analyse several factors including the mode of transport (ship, plane, car or parcel post), the delivery rate and whether the transport should be held in-house or outsourced.
At Prokura, we advise and help companies and organizations in a variety of industries to implement the organizational changes needed to achieve the best results.
We work not only to identify and realize potential savings, but also to upgrade an organization’s competencies to ensure that savings can be realized in the future. Whether the objective is to improve the competencies of the entire organization and create a common foundation, or simply to build the competencies for selected employees, we meet these needs by offering specialized types of capability building programs.
