You may suspect that your supply chain has some inefficiencies, but where exactly are they?
We can help you find them and fix them by collaborating with you to create a Value Stream Map. It’s an easy-to-understand graphical depiction of your entire supply chain and includes all product, platform and data flows. This includes movements to and from your suppliers, plant-to-plant movements, plant-to-warehouse movements and movements to distribution centers and retail.
Working with you in collaborative sessions, we’ll create your Value Stream Map through extensive on-site investigation as well as our proprietary Network Value Map software.
We’ll provide you with thorough documentation of all aspects ofthe current state of your processes, including manufacturing and warehouse facilities and your transportation network.
With your map in hand, we can help you evaluate your various facilities’ performance against one-another and industry benchmarks. We can work with you to identify best practices as well as the root causes behind network inefficiencies. And we can help you uncover new ways to improve efficiencies and operating margins.
A Value Stream Mapping initiative can bring clarity to your entire supply chain network or to your supply chain within a local facility or region.
No one has been inside more facilities than we have. Our Lean SixSigma experts have seen so many processes that they can quickly identify ways to improve how your supply chain operates. They’ll help you both fix problems and apply best-in-class techniques or processes that can help you avoid problems in the future.
A Value Stream Map can help you root out inefficiencies and waste that are harmful to the health of our planet. Our solution can help you both measure and gain value from best-in-class sustainability practices. It’s all part of CHEP’s Better Planet initiative, as we work to reduce the impact of the supply chain on the environment.
