Analyze the proposed value chain from inbound plant raw material receiving to customer/retailer store delivery. Determine recoverable losses in the value chain and develop projects (solution roadmap) for implementation.

TPG Approach

TPG led a team of client supply chain functional leaders and their retailer counterparts to quantify the performance of processes and activities vs. “ideal loss” targets. Gaps were quantified and validated by the client manufacturer and retailer representatives


TPG and the client project team quantified losses totaling 12-18% of COGs for the selected product line of which 6-9% were recoverable. Four (4) projects were identified to realize these recoverable savings.
