Poor Materials Management practices are nothing new to our industry–and clients are finally recognizing they possess a materials management issue that is costing them greatly. As Materials Management experts, our services are more frequently being called upon early in the process, rather than a crisis call when approaching execution. Ideally, our resources should be brought into play 6-19 months prior to to the turnaround.
When discussing our Materials Management Program, we like to begin with explaining our methodological approach to the process. Ultimately, the most important element of this strategy is sustainability, because if you can’t support and repeat the process with each event with only minor changes, the process will fail.
With this program, one principal factor we implement is a rule-driven approach for adaptive relationship development in which rules drive and govern the process. This approach place much-needed guardrails around the materials management process, but also allows for flexible and adaptive changes when needed.
