Vision

The self-driving value chain

Leading companies have already started implementation towards a self-driving value chain. To remain competitive, companies need to transform their end-to-end operating model. Explore the different building blocks of the value chain of the future.

Future procurement

  • Automation of >80% of the procurement function driven by RPA and data analytics
  • Closer collaboration of suppliers and buyers on integrated platforms enabled by blockchains
  • Automated freight rate renewal through benchmarked based freight rate index

Finance/business integration

  • Seamless integration of value and volume streams
  • Real-time simulation of P&L impacts of value chain decisions
  • Early warning signals for financial performance by monitoring of operational metrics

Digital manufacturing

  • Direct machine-to-machine communication for real-time optimization of production flows
  • Real-time production feedback for improvement of planning processes and prediction of deficiencies or line failures
  • Sensor-based, root cause analysis and production loss accounting

Supply chain control tower

  • Planner role evolving from administrator to setting parameters and managing disruptions
  • Forward-looking monitoring based on smart alerts
  • Decision-support systems to minimize and optimize involvement of human planning

Autonomous supply planning

  • Rules-based end-to-end optimization and synchronization of parameters
  • Virtual planning bots decide within predefined confidence intervals
  • Closed-loop self-driving planning in digital twin

Logistics 4.0

  • Order consolidation and load optimization based on predictive analytics
  • End-to-end supply risk management based on e.g. weather data
  • Sensor-driven track & trace triggers replenishment and provides real-time information
  • Automated slot scheduling based on location tracking and gate management supported by machine learning

Next-generation demand management

  • Multidimensional data foundation including external data
  • Use of machine-learning techniques such as neural networks
  • Moving from reactive forecasting to demand shaping and profit optimization

Enablers

Digital transformation is the management challenge of the next decade. It cannot be delegated to singular departments. Each CEO plays an inevitable role in finding the right aspiration and balance to take the organization along the digital journey. We support clients on this journey by bringing together transformation and change management expertise, a profound understanding of organizational behavior and culture as well as latest technology know-how.

Examples of Our Work

Digital Manufacturing & Industrial IoT at Heintz van Landewyck

The implementation of Digital Manufacturing and Industrial IoT solutions helped Heintz van Landewyck to reach a fully automated, transparent and real-time production system. 
CAMELOT’s DigitalExperience2 approach enabled transparency across all production steps and increased the quality of production significantly while reducing the overall waste.

End-to-end supply chain transformation at BSH Hausgeräte GmbH

Through a digital transformation, the entire supply chain of BSH was transferred into a Demand-Driven end-to-end supply chain supported by the implementation of a cloud-based solution. CAMELOT helped BSH to reach a new level of resilience despite high demand volatility and market complexity, resulting in optimal inventory levels and reduced overall supply chain costs.

Machine learning at Evonik

ML empowered data enrichment for master data management helped Evonik to automate the data extraction process from semi-structured and diverse documents.
Manual efforts in packaging material creation were highly automated by the seamless integration via standard software applications.
