Supply Chain Planning and Manufacturing

Develop a strategy to optimize efficiency and meet customer demand

RSM’s supply chain planning and shop floor execution services focus on matching supply to demand for maximum efficiency from an inventory and a manufacturing standpoint. Data-driven demand planning provides the foundation to develop a strong, fiscal-based inventory strategy. Our approach enhances planning, scheduling, forecasting and production so that manufacturing efficiency is optimized to meet the demand profile while putting your company in a better position to meet customer expectations.

Supply chain planning services include:

  • Sales and operations planning (S&OP): Our team designs and implements processes that synchronize demand, operations and supply into a consensus forecast and operating plan across various time horizons. This operating plan enables cross-functional collaboration to reduce inventory, reduce cost and increase service levels.
  • Demand planning and forecasting: By integrating sources of demand data, we establish a complete view of existing and potential demand to support sales and operations planning. In designing the capabilities, our team includes process, organization and data requirements.
  • Production planning and inventory management: Our experienced professionals build a detailed understanding of operations and demand requirements to determine optimal production schedule and material requirements that meet customer needs and efficiently utilize resources. A proactive approach can improve EBITDA through efficiency of working capital and reduced inventory costs, enhance customer service, boost on-time delivery and drive future growth.
