Supplier Advantage

IPL understands that managing and working closely with suppliers can often deliver competitive advantage to a business. Supply chain management is the process of planning, implementing, and controlling the operations of the supply chain with the purpose to satisfy customer requirements as efficiently as possible.

Supply chain management spans all movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point-of-origin to point-of-consumption.

IPL bases its tools on the theory that supply chain management is focused on the supplier where it needs instead to focus on the consumer. Failures in the supply chain tend to be caused by bottlenecks at the consumer end of the supply chain, which causes ripple effects all the way back to the supplier (what has been referred to as the ‘bullwhip effect’). The ‘just in time’ inventory strategy, dual sourcing, localised supplying, contact licensed supplying are a few examples of strategies that address the problem of supply chain management.

IPL’s analytical tools, frameworks and instruments will be used by our experts to accelerate results for your company. To deliver business value the results are then compared and contrasted with IPL Golden Rules (“IPG”) which are derived from lessons learnt and best practice guides.
