Chain management & architecture

Where choices need to be made that affect business performance, Asintik is happy to play its part. In the playing field of supply chain, product development, making choices regarding allocation and marketing, Asintik offers a quantitative insight into the choices of organizations.

Chain complexity is increasing due to cost price pressures, market demand for diversity, and the myriad possibilities for supply chain design. Companies are becoming increasingly aware of this chain complexity. They see the market changing. There is a need to deliver faster, to offer more diversity. The struggle with this sometimes leads to the choice of the method of LEAN. A limitation of this method, however, is that it undesirably simplifies the chain to avoiding waste. The guiding theme in chain management and architecture is that you don’t have to choose, but in any case have to consider all possibilities to make the right choice for the company. This is the playing field of Asintik and the method chain management and architecture, focusing on:

  • Integral performance
  • Taking into account uncertainties
  • Building blocks (options)
  • Interactions
  • Quantitative scenario analysis
  • Directing multidisciplinary team
  • Use of all knowledge present within the company

Outsource or not? What is the relationship of the different possibilities to the other factors in the process? What quantitative arguments (profit, cost) and qualitative arguments (guarding intellectual property, image of the product) play a role? Asintik provides extensive support in such matters.
