Situation

Small fast growing family owned company in industrial sensors where eager to know if working capital reductions where feasible.

Approach

A feasibility study was executed to confirm the potential for working capital reduction. VMPS analysed the supply chain information-, product & inventory flow and made a proposal for a new supply chain strategy. Management approved the new concept and VMPS implemented new processes with customers and suppliers and supported the reconfiguration of the existing ERP system (Exact) to benefit from the enhanced information flow.

Achievements

Higher utilization of critical capacity (SMD), lower inventories and an extended order pipeline
