Common life sciences
problems by role

  • “We have difficulty managing inventory across multi-tier supply chain”
  • “Variability from upstream suppliers are creating excess buffers"
  • “We have difficulty sensing end patient demand"
  • “Our statistical forecasting is driving a decline in forecast accuracy"
  • “Different packaging requirements by region create SKU complexity"
  • “Demand volatility driven by uncertain/expected government tenders"
  • “Our batch planning systems are not providing real-time answers to demand and supply change what-ifs"
  • “Negotiations are tougher because of consolidation: hospitals, doctors groups, clinics, purchasing groups, and MCOs buy in bulk at lower costs and apply margin pressure”
  • “Many people are second guessing forecasts - Limited visibility and collaboration around assumptions”
  • “Developing emerging nation infrastructure creates a demand for life science products in different markets”
  • “Heavy regulation and political pressure on pricing impacting selling approach”
  • “Sometimes I don’t know what Marketing has planned for my region/area and why.”
  • “Our margin pressure is rising: Private insurers and government programs must limit payments for many medical treatments due to increasing health care costs."
  • “Our AOP /finance process is disconnected from the rolling forecasts of our S&OP process"
  • “Consolidation: hospitals, doctors groups, clinics, purchasing groups, and MCOs buy in bulk at lower costs and apply margin pressure"
  • “Our S&OP is conducted on PowerPoint – A big productivity drain and highly ineffective meetings"
  • “Long and uncertain clinical trial periods are requiring significant R&D investment"

Aim big, start small, iterate rapidly.
