Woolworths has selected Business Modelling Associates to conduct an extensive review of its entire supply chain network, spanning Clothing & General Merchandise (CGM) and Foods.
“Woolworths is in the process of optimising, aligning and transforming its supply chain. We aim to unlock synergies between CGM and Foods with a long term view of incorporating all business strategies, current and future growth, and the adoption of best practice principles across the business,” said Phil Davies, Supply Chain Director at Woolworths. “We selected Business Modelling Associates because of their niche focus on supply chain design, the experience and commitment of their team, and their world leading technology.”
Business Modelling Associates (BMA) is Southern Africa’s leading supply chain design and solutions development firm. With operations in South Africa and the UK, BMA helps clients compete and win by giving them the tools to visualise, analyse and optimise their key decisions. BMA is the exclusive distributor in the Sub Saharan region for LLamasoft, the global leader in supply chain design software solutions, and will utilise their market leading technology, Supply Chain Guru®, to perform the network design at Woolworths.
The network analysis study forms part of an investment decision journey that Woolworths has embarked on to analytically explore and quantify key supply chain decisions that will impact the business over the next 10 years and beyond.
BMA co-founder and director Rod Stout said, “We are proud to partner with Woolworths on this journey to further enhance their reputation as a supply chain innovator and leader in the retail sector. After a thorough selection process, BMA was appointed ahead of both local and internationally recognised consulting and logistics providers.”
