Deliver breakthrough innovation faster, sense risks and opportunities earlier
Common high-tech & semiconductor
problems by role
- “Our long supply lead times create limited ability to react to significant changes in demand.”
- “Our batch planning systems are not providing real-time answers to demand and supply change what-ifs”
- “We lack early warnings to capacity and material constraints at suppliers/ contract manufacturers”
- “Our statistical forecasting is driving a decline in forecast accuracy with large shifts in demand”
- “Allocation of constrained supply is often contentious and sub-optimal”
- “We have constraints not adequately modeled in the Planning System – Execution deviates from plan”
- “We are seeing rapid growth in the smartphone market driving semiconductor investments in emerging markets.”
- “Rapid innovation with shorter and shorter product life cycles is leading to markdowns/obsolescence”
- “Our leading demand drivers & indicators not being monitored systematically - Creates surprises”
- “Many people are second guessing forecasts - Limited visibility and collaboration around assumptions”
- “Collaboration is complex. Manufacturing and sales have gone global with production facilities, R&D labs, and test facilities located in many countries.”
- “We have long cycle times to respond to customer demand change requests (“what-if”)”
- “Slow, siloed planning processes without clear view on constraints lead to alignment gap between planning, finance and operations execution”
- “Our AOP /finance process is disconnected from the rolling forecasts of our S&OP process”
- “We cannot answer management what-if questions in real time”
- “Our S&OP is conducted on PowerPoint – A big productivity drain and highly ineffective meetings”
Aim big, start small, iterate rapidly.
