In today’s dynamic and competitive business landscape, collaboration is often the key to achieving sustainable growth and staying ahead of the curve. Recognizing the power of collaboration, OMP and EyeOn have successfully joined forces in a recent multi-echelon inventory optimization implementation. Our customer, a biopharmaceutical multinational with a strong pipeline, has multiple product launches in the 5-year horizon. The upcoming launches will grow working capital, as the supply chain will be increasingly stocked with late-stage development and launch volumes. Strong inventory target-setting and inventory management of both the existing and new portfolios are identified as key enablers for sustainable growth.
OMP’s MEIO functionality as part of the Unison Planning™ platform, was selected as the inventory optimization solution to complement the already implemented OMP supply planning solution. Together with EyeOn’s MEIO and planning experts OMP worked on designing a fit-for-purpose MEIO solution. Through close collaboration and with applied expertise the project delivered 4 key benefits to the customer:
- Fit-for-purpose MEIO system capability: refinement of the MEIO models, user interface, and reporting outputs to fit the industry dynamics and business needs.
- Solid MEIO data design: bottom-up data design and data analysis to identify, detail out, and validate the key data inputs required for the MEIO model to function in optimal form.
- Enabling business decision-making: embedding the new capability in a comprehensive set of processes, starting from highly frequent exception monitoring up to validation of the complete inventory targets in S&OP – including elements like safety stock, cycle stock, strategic stock, and regulatory stock.
- Day-to-day planning impact: translating MEIO capabilities to making day-to-day planning impact. Delivering a solid pilot design and supporting business readiness to have the solution deliver value from the start.
