The first element of any analysis is to understand what the current situation is. Only once this baseline is established can new solutions be tested. At RubiKon we use our experience of many different modelling and analysis methods to produce a mix of techniques appropriate to analyse and document the system under examination. Using different techniques looking at different perspectives, which when combined produce a clear picture of the whole system.
Examples of methods and techniques which we can employ are:
- System Dynamics (SD) – looks at how systems change over time as a result of actions.
- Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology (SSADM) – used to look at hard ICT and engineering situations (comprises many techniques which are useful when applied independently.
- Supply Chain Resilience Assessment Management (SCRAM) – used to assess the level of resilience in a supply chain and identify improvements.
- Kai Sen – Continuous improvement method for operational enhancements.
- Facilitation Methods – SWOT, mind mapping, Critical path analysis, product based planning, stakeholder analysis, swim lanes etc.
These methods are then localised to analyse:
- Supply Data Management
- Supply Chain Cost
- Initial Program Data Analysis and verification
- Tactical Demand Forecasting
- Reliability Based Logistics
- Asset Visibility and Tracking
These are just an example of the methods and techniques we can utilise and if you have a requirement to use a specific technique please contact your local RubiKon Operations manager to discuss.
