Problem Statement

Before using advanced analytics, our client had supply chain challenges in demand forecasting, shipment transportation, and logistics.
  • Inaccurate Forecasts: The client struggled with inaccuracies in their demand forecasts, leading to overproduction or stockouts.
  • Complex Market Dynamics: The electronics market is highly dynamic, with rapidly changing consumer preferences and market trends, making it difficult to predict demand accurately.
  • Data Fragmentation: Data from various sources was not integrated, leading to delays in decision-making and poor forecasting accuracy.
  • Inefficient Routes: The client lacked optimized shipping routes, resulting in longer transit times and increased transportation costs.
  • Lack of Real-time Visibility: Limited visibility into shipment status made it challenging to respond to delays or disruptions promptly.
  • Carrier Performance Issues: Inconsistent carrier performance affected delivery reliability and customer satisfaction.
  • Inventory Management Issues: The client struggled with excessive inventory in some locations and shortages in others, impacting overall operational efficiency.
  • Complex Supply Chain: A complex supply chain with multiple warehouses and distribution centers made it difficult to coordinate operations effectively.
  • Operational Inefficiencies: Manual processes and a lack of data-driven insights resulted in operational inefficiencies and increased costs.
