Scope:

The Digital Supply Chain Service (DSCS) is an end-to-end solution for improving efficiency of supply chain operations. It provides a digital platform to explore transformations in supply chain activities, eliminate data silos and limit labour-intensive manual processes. The DSCS uses a process-driven approach to identify technology gaps and opportunities for improving your business’s supply chain.


Approach:

The DSCS is a combination of three key service modules delivered in a customer-focused way to quantify, prioritise and tackle unique business needs. The DSCS is built on the foundations of lean six sigma principles and looks to quantify and sustain improvements.

HSSMI can help improve the efficiency of your supply chain activities through the three modules of the DSCS - Inbound Logistic Management module, Warehouse module, and Waste Management module (see below for more information). The modules can be deployed alone or in any combination to suit your needs.


Outcome:

HSSMI’s DSCS service will help you address the following areas:

  • Costs - reduce transport costs, increase rebate for factory wastes e.g. pallets, carboard waste etc.
  • Environmental impact - decrease carbon footprint, control and streamline supply chain operations, promote corporate responsibility.
  • Automation - eliminate manual and labour-intensive processes.
  • Operations - optimise waste flow operations and resource allocation.
