Materials Sourcing

Capacity Planning

Optimising your production capacity to meet long term customer demand.

Forecast accuracy can typically be as low as 55%, resulting in inadequate capacity planning, which leads to adverse financial implications and missed orders.

Through Exertis Supply Chain Services’ dedicated factory sourcing team, state of the art planning tools and global supplier network, we will ensure that your business has the optimal level of material to meet production capacity requirements that are typically dynamic in nature. Our systems monitor usage against forecast and position a pool of material to match specific production requirements, allowing you to make adjustments while still meeting your overall targets.

OUR CAPACITY PLANNING SERVICES INCLUDE:

DEMAND MONITORING
We will analyse your historical and forecasted production data, along with your current run rates to help you maximise the use of your production resources while ensuring you have sufficient capacity to meet fluctuating customer demands.

FACTORY SOURCING
Our dedicated factory management team will globally source vendors that meet your production requirements as well as your cost and quality specifications.

CAPACITY ASSESSMENT
Each potential supplier to your business will be assessed to determine production output potential and ensure sufficient capacity to meet your future customer demand.

MULTI-VENDOR MANAGEMENT
We will minimise your supply chain risk by sourcing and actively managing additional manufacturers for your products. This ensures that your production capacity does not suffer in the event that your principal supplier is unable to fulfil orders.

BUILDING CAPACITY UPGRADING
By leveraging BIM (Building Information Modelling) techniques, we will help you upgrade your facilities and capacity, ensuring that manufacturing equipment is sourced and delivered at precisely the right time for complex international fit outs.

Accurate Capacity Planning is essential for organisations to maximise the use of their resources while ensuring sufficient capacity to meet demand
