Corporate business model and logistical business model have to work hand in hand
To be economically successful and unleash further cost reduction, a correct construction of the logistical business model is crucial. Otherwise any improvements and changes to logistics and supply chain can only show limited effects. By simulating your logistical business model, A&K’s consultants will assist you in systematic optimisation.
The success of each and any company is based on a dedicated business model. Yet many companies are not aware that they also need to develop an appropriate logistical business model to successfully realise the objectives of the company’s business model. The existing “organically” grown logistical business model often contradicts the strategically chosen company business model. Thus, a greater economic success often fails due to insufficient coordination between the company’s business model and its logistical business model.
A&K’s consultants help you to optimise your logistical business model on the structural, planning and operational level. We identify the gaps and contradictions between your company and your logistical business model. Thereafter, we adjust your logistical performance as well as your planning and controlling procedures to meet the requirements of your company business model at minimal operating cost. Contradictions between your logistical and your company business model will be clarified and solved. In order to achieve the goals derived from the company’s business model with regards to adherence to schedules, delivery readiness, delivery period and total costs, the following aspects are crucial:
- an appropriate logistical structure of the product portfolio,
- an adequate architecture of the value chain and
- a logistically correct positioning of the value chain.
To simply rely on experience and ‘gut feeling’ in this matter is just as dangerous as to develop the structural engineering calculations of a house ‘by instinct’. A high-yield logistical business model must be based on clean calculations and simulation. Using its strategic simulation tools, A&K begins working precisely at this point.
