Organizationally these transactional functions typically reside outside the traditional logistics-focused supply-chain responsibilities. These include activities that precede and succeed the logistical supply chain activities, such as identification of needs, supplier selection, placement of purchase orders, processing of invoices and disbursement of payment. Meyer offered his expertise on how to capture significant improvement opportunities for these activities by eliminating low transactional-quality, inconsistent processes and functional silos.
“When it comes to transactional activities in the expanded supply chain, the savings opportunities for organizations have remained largely untapped,” said Frank Fenello, UHY Advisors Managing Director. “There are specific strategies and tools that we have successfully implemented with our clients that have proven to increase efficiencies and positively impact their bottom line. We like to think of these practices as leading practices, recognizing that they will continually have to evolve to retain leadership as compared to best practices that are static in time. We are glad Juergen was able to share examples from UHY’s Enterprise Optimization practice at the recent ASQ conference.”

About Enterprise Optimization
Enterprise Optimization creates sustainable efficiency in the workplace by permanently eliminating waste in business processes, and its strategies have proven to transform client performance. The key is making processes more predictable and reliable. Enterprise Optimization is unique in the marketplace in that it (1) draws on the knowledge that already resides with the organization, (2) engages the client’s cross-functional teams to ensure all departments and working effectively together, (3) implements these changes together with the client, and (4) implements this very quickly. Clients immediately see a real change in their efficiencies and in their bottom line after undergoing this process.
The ASQ 2012 World Conference on Quality and Improvement, held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California May 21 - 23, 2012, focused on basic quality, globalization, best practices in supply chain management, managing risk and changing technology through various educational sessions and keynote addresses that shared insight and knowledge from the industry.
