CASE STUDY – IMPROVING INVENTORY
Turning excess into success
An iconic British brand, Jaguar Land Rover is known as much for its rich history as its commitment towards pioneering innovation. Leaders rather than followers, the company is always seeking to do things better.
With such an extensive supply chain to its name, senior stakeholders at Jaguar Land Rover were looking to improve the flow of materials throughout the company. Mainly, this would involve a significant reduction in excess inventory.
As with any long-distance drive, the journey is just as important as the destination, and there are many routes you can take. Our job was to decide which route would get them there quicker, and with the fewest bumps in the road.
Our first step was to calculate the extent of the excess inventory issue, and what factors were driving it. We then conducted a thorough material flow assessment and policy review, working at a “site” and “strategic” level to identify a wider range of gaps and opportunities.
The theory was simple. By putting better processes in place, we could improve performance.
