Successful value chain analysis is a strategic decision-making support tool that contributes to an organization's competitive advantage. In addition to optimizing the architecture of an entire enterprise, value chain analysis benefits our clients by identifying opportunities for reduced value chain costs, improved cycle time, and more efficient processes and asset utilization. To achieve these ends, both the manufacturer and its suppliers must be willing to share the information necessary for successful value chain analysis.
More then ever organizations are realizing the competitive advantage offered by having strategically designed their value chains early in their product development. By involving suppliers in this essential planning process a trusting cooperative environment is encouraged between the organization and its suppliers.
