Blockchain, automation, IoT, robotics, big data, artificial intelligence, connected supply chains… the concept of supply chain digitisation is often hard to translate into reality for Supply Chain executives: the words “digital transformation” have been used and overused to the point where it has become almost meaningless.
So how to deal with digitization and translate this concept into a realistic and achievable digital supply chain strategy?
Tokema Consulting has created a very hands-on and pragmatic methodology to design and implement the digital supply chain strategy that suits to each customer: each company is different, with its own unique culture, specific organisation and tailor-made processes acting on different markets to deliver products and services to very different types of clients.
We focus on each customer to define a tailor-made scope of digitisation.
Because we consider technology is the platform to facilitate the execution of the supply chain digital strategy but not the end game, our consultant work closely with our customers to select which data is needed to support the business.
Once done, our work with the client’s team is to simplify, standardise big data and define a true data management strategy. Then we evaluate and recommend what are the right technologies to provide this fulfil this data management strategy.
As part of our methodology, we recommend not to start the digital journey through the technology angle.
Before even considering to digitise their operations, customers should review their existing processes, eliminate some of them, go through an initial optimisation program before selecting and implementing the technology that will support the digitisation and the future growth of the business.
If your company is looking at designing and implementing a digital supply chain, Tokema Consulting can help you.
