How do you simplify a supply chain?

By far the most common struggle we find our clients facing is supply chain complexity that has exceeded supply chain capability. Some supply chain complexity is inherent in any supply chain. However, some complexity is non-value added, self inflicted, and excessively burdensome. Some examples include non-value added SKUs, customers, orders, suppliers, carriers, lanes, and network nodes. We sometimes call the elimination of those non-value added components of a supply chain, "Pruning for Profit." In the video below I'm explaining the Power of Pruning and it's application in supply chain management. The links below the video are to our supply chain simplification analytics.
