Improving Logistics and Supply Chain Visibility Using Supply Chain Analytics Solutions | A Success Story by Quantzig

Sep 23, 2019

The client is a leading equipment manufacturer based out of North America. The equipment manufacturer is well-known offering advanced services and innovative software to aid the manufacture of advanced semiconductors, flat panel displays, and solar photovoltaic products. The client wanted to leverage Quantzig’s supply chain analytics solutions to achieve better visibility and control over the supply chain and logistics operations across all locations and build capabilities to identify savings opportunities.

The Business Challenge

Owing to the sky-rocketing costs, the client was looking at leveraging supply chain analytics solutions to rationalize its time-critical service network in North America consisting of over 15 locations, serving several hundred high-value semiconductor equipment manufacturers. The challenges stemmed mainly due to their inability to adhere to target response time and capture supply chain data which further hindered their ability to achieve enterprise-wide supply chain visibility, mitigate risks and identify opportunities for savings.

Besides, the lack of an enterprise-wide supply chain program reduced the impact of their investments on their bottom line. Their business objective was to reduce both their spare parts inventory investment and logistics costs while meeting target response times specified in their multi-level service level agreements.
