Ethical and Sustainable Sourcing is a cornerstone of our Supply Chain activities. Coupled with extensive Supply Chain mapping, we can provide your organisation with a different view of your sourcing activities.

Materials Management Review (MMR)

The MMR is a two phased approach to help clients realise value from already purchased materials that are unknown, under utilised or obsolete:​

  • Phase 1 review provides an initial snapshot of your organisation’s physical management of both inventory and non-inventory items across a sample of the various storage locations.
  • Optional Phase 2:  Staged or full review of all storage locations and the implementation of the agreed recommendations overseen by a single Critical Input Senior Consultant.

Supply Chain Risk Assessment Matrix

Understanding the risks to your business from a Supply Chain perspective isn’t always obvious. Using our Supply Chain Risk Assessment Matrix, we can provide you with a robust set of identified risks that you can then use to manage all aspects of the Supply Chain within your business.
