CGN Generally Takes A 6 Step Approach Towards Sustainable Capacity Management:

The key outcome of CGN’s supplier capacity transformation is the achievable idea of sustainability. Customer demand will always be a rollercoaster with twists, turns and 50-foot drops. Organizations often invest millions of dollars throughout the year increasing the capacity of their suppliers when needed, and are left with excess when demand suddenly takes a dive. CGN uses a workshop based approach to enable suppliers to be more efficient and effective and able to ramp up/ramp down capacity with ease, resulting in huge benefits to all parties’ bottom lines and invaluable customer satisfaction.

CGN Generally Takes A 6 Step Approach Towards Sustainable Capacity Management:
  • Supplier Identification and Engagement - a critical first step in developing a collaborative program that defines the relevant level of intervention with suppliers
  • Deep Dive Capacity Assessments - involve “doing the homework” prior to supplier visits as well as detailed on-site assessments for identifying all capacity challenges at a business level
  • Mitigation Planning - establishes commitment through clear understanding of roles & responsibilities, timeline and investment expectations from both sides
  • Enterprise Capacity Planning & Modeling - Tactical action plans are augmented with a strategic understanding of the mid-long term supply and demand gaps across the supply base to further refine the mitigation plans
  • Governance - collaboration, coordination and control are extremely important for providing continuous focus on the common goals of the program and ensuring success
  • Action Plan Management - ultimately, relentless execution by working the plan is the key to achieving success
