Supply chain risks & control towers

How to deal with supply chain disruptions?

Supply chain disruptions can have a significant impact on your company’s operational and financial performance.

Organizations that operate an effective supply chain control tower with the ability to predict, evaluate and monitor risk will be able to respond to and mitigate disruptions. A control tower provides you with an overview of your supply chain to support you during decision-making with real-time information from the entire digital ecosystem, including data sources from third parties. Machine learning empowers prescriptive resolutions to challenges you are facing within your supply chain by prioritizing risks and conducting impact analyses.

Control tower

Together with our technology partners, we can offer you supply chain visibility from supplier to customer in terms of demand forecasting, network fulfillment, capacity planning, inventory optimization and transport management. The AI/ML technology leverages resolution recommendations based on data patterns and impacts on your supply chain can be predicted in real-time.

Working capital & spare parts optimization

How to get the best value out of your material master data?

Our team is partnering with Creactives, a company specialized in categorization and enrichment of material master data based on artificial intelligence. The Material and Services Master Data Governance tool is a combination of “Knowledge Engineering” (getting the knowledge out of the people) and “Machine Learning” (tool is trained to categorize the data in the correct way). The approach focuses on cleansing the data (identifying duplicates and data enrichment) and keeping the data clean (Smart Creation).

As a certified partner, we are able to use the technology and knowledge platform to connect with companies worldwide in a digital and AI-driven way to set up the most appropriate customization for your organization.

The customized AI engine makes it possible to perform the identification and categorization of the materials in an automatic way.

This engine is fed by custom material master data and is built up using the Creactives Knowledge Engineering Platform, in which KPMG works - while the customer contributes to feeding - this engine.

Furthermore, we can enhance your working capital in the broad sense by identifying levers to reduce your inventory.

Sustainable procurement & supply chain

Sustainable supply chains and sustainable sourcing are becoming the norm. Companies must comply with emerging regulations (Paris Agreement, European green deal), in addition to responding to customer demands for better traceability to protect the company’s brand reputation and trust.

Besides that, embedding sustainability practices decreases potential business disruption as a result of product scarcity or increased raw material cost due to climate change. To mitigate, implementing consistent sustainability practices and putting more focus on long-term supplier relationships will increase business resilience. 

It is more important than ever for your business to shift its mindset and become a more sustainable organization. We are your preferred partner, supporting you through your journey of becoming more sustainable.

Sustainable and ethical procurement

The growth path to efficient and more sustainable procurement means integrating social, ethical and environmental performance factors into the process of selecting suppliers, as well as increasing your procurement integrity.

To accomplish this, we have developed a cutting-edge, qualitative ESG questionnaire, which is embedded into your sourcing process. Leveraging best-in-class sourcing technologies, we make sure that the appropriate criteria are accounted for in award scenarios. This all has a positive impact, helping you manage risks as well as cost.

Taking your organization’s procurement integrity to the next level, KPMG and SAS can act as your partners. This can be done by executing a SAS procurement integrity analysis where the goal is ensuring predictive analytics to identify risks and to minimize use of resources via predictive analytics.

Finally, focusing on your organization’s growth becomes important for driving innovation and circular business models by engaging with suppliers. Our innovation center can support you in prioritizing the R&D RACI as well as prioritizing any change in getting your procurement department involved from an earlier stage.
