Business leaders are constantly facing operational challenges and striving for improvements in their supply chain.

One of the ways this can be accomplished is by eliminating operational inefficiencies from the supply chain. However, this becomes a difficult undertaking because the underlying causes of operational inefficiencies are often difficult to identify and require significant time, effort, and resources. Whether the issue is known or not, an operational assessment is an effective tool to ensure supply chain improvement initiatives are addressing the root issue – rather than its symptoms.

enVista’s Supply Chain Solutions practice provides a unique perspective on your supply chain execution performance through an Operations and Technology Performance Assessment. Our expert consultants can assess and quickly benchmark your operations against best in class performers. We have the experience and objectivity to spot quick hit tactical changes that deliver immediate productivity increases. Our consultants won’t do this from afar. We will enter the facilities themselves to examine and make recommendations.

Operational assessments provide data-driven conclusions that lead to measurable, tangible, and financially viable solutions. The bottom line value of any operational assessment is the knowledge that comes from it.

With an enVista operational assessment you will:

  • Receive 5-10 actionable items split between short-term tactical changes and long-term strategic goals
  • Gain insight to a technology roadmap including Supply Chain Execution systems and warehouse automation
  • Get a low-cost assessment that makes prudent cases as to whether or not to make further investments
  • Determine quick wins with direction on how to implement changes
  • Receive a benchmark of your operations vs. best in class performers
  • Learn from our experts about what your competition is doing to enable their supply chain to become more nimble and efficient
