Paradigm shift in supply chain managment

VUCA – volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity – describes the conditions of increasing variability and uncertainty of demand, and the complexity and ambiguity of product portfolios as well as supply chain networks in which companies operate today – the new normal, for which most global value chains in the process, CPG and manufacturing industries are not sufficiently equipped.

In response to these conditions, CAMELOT has worked jointly with leading research institutes and key global industry players to develop the innovative “LEAN Demand-Driven Supply Chain Planning” concept. The results speak for themselves:

  • Reduced variability (-31%) for the supply chain
  • Increased service levels (+5%)
  • Improved equipment utilization (+7%)
  • Inventory reductions (-35%).

With our expertise and experience CAMELOT is a reliable partner on your “LEAN Demand-Driven Supply Chain Planning” journey to face the challenges of the VUCA world and to overcome the short-comings of traditional SCM approaches.
