Integrated Business Planning

Supply Chain Design and Optimization

extended supply chain; identify where value is being created and destroyed; develop profitable relationships with
suppliers customers and consumers; and optimize their supply chain (however complex) for the ultimate in
customer service and business performance.

performance, allowing organisations to identify opportunities for improving customer service at the same time as
