'A big data solution has to be smart and smooth'
On May 11, we officially launched our big data e-commerce platform. The afternoon was filled with inspiring speakers and interesting stories from clients.
MAG45 believes that an optimal supply chain should be in reach for every manufacturer, enabling them to focus on their core business. Our extensive experience and strong change management skills allow us to implement best-in-class lean solutions reducing the total cost of ownership for our customers in the areas of sourcing, logistics and processes.
Thermo Fisher's main challenges before working with MAG45 were a fragmented supply base with limited sourcing leverage, unbalanced inventory levels and time consuming processes, leading to inefficiencies and a high transactional workload.
The regional operations director has the ambition to become the leanest manufacturing group within the entire company. Up to that moment, MRO was in their peripheral sight, lacking uniform processes and a central strategy.
Before MAG45 came on board, there was no structural storeroom management in place, let alone insight in stock levels or the expenditure on parts. Due to this lack of control in MRO, employees didn't know where to find parts and production lines frequently exceeded their budgets.
