Supply Chain Optimization in the field

Here is what what our clients are saying.

Polymer Technologies engaged MEP to provide a workshop on Supply Chain Optimization. The workshop was conducted over two days and we utilized a cross functional team throughout the levels of our organization for the program. We found the program to be extremely well run and effective. The concepts were clearly presented and the exercises were pertinent to the subject matter and crystalized some of the concepts being presented. The two days were extremely interactive and covered issues that are generally thought to be outside of the scope of supply chain optimization. What was most impressive was the methodology of pulling the theory and concepts together into an operational roadmap for our organization. The facilitators concluded the workshop insuring we had a clear vision of our priorities and the realistic initiatives that will tie directly to success of our plan. The operational roadmap provided will allow for extremely effective follow up and monitoring of our program. I would recommend this program to any manufacturing company regardless of size.

The two days spent at the Supply Chain Optimization Workshop delivered extraordinary results for TE Connectivity. The program helped us to understand the elements of a successful supply chain strategy and quickly move forward to identify the critical steps we need to make us successful. We came away with a ready-to-execute, detailed action plan. SCMEP’s facilitators kept our global team fully engaged, resulting in an optimized outcome.

The MEP Supply Chain Optimization program was excellent! We attended the program to learn how to transform our materials management function to a supply chain optimization function. It provided a very effective blend of theory, strategies, best practices and personalized workshop sessions. Better yet, we left our 2-day program with an Ulbrich Vision Statement and Strategic Plan to implement our supply chain optimization function.

Jay Cei, Chief Operating Officer


The supply chain optimization program provided by SCMEP enabled us to create a concise strategic vision combined with a plan for the changes necessary for effective execution. The two-day Executive Session is well organized, expertly facilitated and the SCMEP Greenville offices provide an environment that enabled our team to focus on the creative process with minimal distractions.

Mike Higgins, General Manager of Operations


The two day workshop is jam packed with theory, class exercises, real life examples and interactive discussion. Our entire team was involved and challenged, and we came away with a very workable roadmap on how to improve our supply chain. Overall, the program was well worth our investment.

Sonoco has used several different models to develop supply chain strategy in the past with varying degrees of alignment across the various functions of the value stream. The SCMEP facilitated process in 1.5 days gave us the most aligned vision for supply chain excellence that we have ever developed. The process also gave us a roughed out action plan for the 3-5 bold steps that were identified that gave us a way to implement the vision as we move forward. The combination of education with Dr. Gray and Process facilitation by Chuck Spangler was very effective.

MEP has developed an interactive workshop focusing on the “Theory of Constraints” approach for supply chain management. With a very talented group of lean professionals on our team we had in-depth discussions and learned to look at the continuous improvement topics from a different perspective. Our team has already begun implementing new knowledge into existing programs; the two day workshop has already helped recalibrate the way we think and act.

MEP has put together an intelligent program that was well thought out and challenging for supply chain management team. They challenged our supply chain approach and current paradigm – forcing us to take a fresh look at what we do and how we do it. We are using the supply chain strategy tools that they provided as “take-aways” to change how we do things.
