Locus Consulting

Strategic supply chain decision making is becoming more dynamic, as the industry landscape shifts towards digitization. For sustained value and organization growth, these decisions should be driven by insights and visualizations of existing data. Aided by a renowned and world-class data science team, Locus Consulting brings in technology, insights and supply chain expertise to drive innovative and contextual solutions.

TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR INDUSTRY USE-CASE

End-to-end supply-chain simulation & optimization basis minimizing total landed cost. Locus will model the supply-chain bottom-up and iteratively optimize for various scenarios and output the cost impact & re-designed supply-chain

Flow Optimization
Flow
Optimization

Flow-based remapping to optimize Total Landed Cost (Logistics + Warehousing) while maintaining existing/ improving service levels.

Location Optimization
Location
Optimization

Identifying optimal locations for Warehouses/RDCs for both consolidation and new warehouse opening scenarios

Inventory Optimization
Inventory
Optimization

Multi-Echelon inventory optimization at every layer of supply-chain and identifying optimal safety+cycle stock levels so as to lower inventory holding costs.

HOW IT WORKS

In the global model, with Vendors and Warehouses distributed across the globe, sourcing becomes a dynamic process and strategic sourcing can result in substantial cost-saving opportunities. As a part of this exercise, Locus will optimize end-to-end supply-chain and run simulations to minimize total landed cost.

Sourcing Rules

The Future Of Sales Transformation : Dynamic PJP

“Sales Beat Plan” also called “Permanent Journey Plan” is a day level route plan made for field sales & marketing executives to visit several stores at a pre-defined frequency. However, the entry of e-tailers has had a significant effect on the consumption pattern of the retailers. Add to that the ever-changing nature of the FMCG industry and one realizes that static permanent journey plans are no longer enough for the companies.
