A segmentated network for Fujifilm
A wide range of products and services
The need for scale and scope
Operating across numerous countries with varying regulatory environments, cultural nuances, and logistical infrastructures further amplifies the difficulty. Each region introduces unique challenges, necessitating a supply chain strategy that is not only agile but also attuned to local intricacies. The diverse divisions within the company, each with its own set of requirements and operational dynamics, add another layer of complexity. Coordinating these divisions to work seamlessly together demands a high degree of organizational alignment and communication.
Balance is key
In such a dynamic and intricate environment, maintaining efficiency and reliability is an ongoing endeavour. Unexpected disruptions, whether due to global events, supply chain bottlenecks, or changes in market demand, can have cascading effects. To overcome these challenges, Fujifilm and Argusi engaged in a very challenging project to design a new supply chain structure striking a balance between customization for specific products or regions and standardization for efficiency.
In this project we used a set of supply chain network models to simulate the different scenario’s and simulate the performance and lead-times: Simulation module of our Spanning Tree platform, Multi-echelon inventory optimization and costs database.
