Supply Chain Management

Complexity in healthcare manufacturing organizations often extends outside of the organization. As we've seen during the pandemic a disruption in the supply chain of a healthcare manufacturing organization can have significant long-term effects.

We help clients:

  • Effectively utilize one fully - integrated ERP system that provides real - time visibility into all parts of the supply chain
  • Accurately track material availability, cost, and quality by supplier
  • Optimize inventory levels based o n forecasted sales
  • Minimize the cost of holding inventory

Quality Assurance

Quality assurance is a vital component of any healthcare manufacturing organization. Product defects in raw materials and finished goods costs time and money and adversely impacts customer satisfaction.

We help clients:

  • Ensure that receiving and production inspection processes are measured in order to deliver high - quality products
  • Accurately track and report product scrap
  • Make happy customers with zero - defect products

Planning & Scheduling

Material purchase and production scheduling are key activities in a healthcare manufacturing company. Advanced planning and scheduling is required in situations where customers must have delivery by a certain date.

Our clients benefit from:

  • Efficient utilization of human resources, material, and machines
  • Advanced scheduling systems to plan, manufacture, and deliver to customer delivery dates
  • Balancing work center capacity and delivery based on actual and projected demand
  • Advanced warning when subcontract manufacturing is needed to meet delivery dates

Financial Management​

While making products is vital to a healthcare manufacturing firm, all roads lead to accounting. In many cases, the operation's impact on the organization's financial statements is known at the end of the implementation instead of the beginning.

We help clients:

  • Establish needed financial controls
  • Create and maintain audit trails

  • Deploy relevant financial metrics in a Business Intelligence (BI) platform
