Many would say that in sports, in life, and in business, learning the rules, agreeing on the rules, and applying those rules most effectively are crucial advantages in achieving your objectives. This advice is particularly true as it relates to Supply Chain Consulting. At ChainSequence®, we teach your business the proven, best-practice rules of supply chain engineering science, as well as how to best leverage these principles when planning, re-aligning, or re-engineering your enterprise’s supply chain processes.
While some form of traditional supply chain planning exists in all organizations, in many cases these processes focus only on the short-term execution horizon. Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) or Integrated Business Planning (IBP) can provide an invaluable, rigorously scheduled “wellness check” on an enterprise’s operational and organizational health that uses data-driven analytics and forecasting tools to achieve a more beneficial, long-term view.
Developing the right supply chain and S&OP planning business process takes considerable time and effort—once it’s deployed, the end result should clearly represent that intended plan, and by extension, an upward direction for your business. Our Process-to-System Integration services will help your business eliminate as many unexpected variables as possible to ensure a smooth transition from old methodologies to new business processes that will best support your organization’s business objectives and financial goals.

Tree Top enjoyed a tremendous working relationship with ChainSequence®. Their outstanding project management helped us reach our goals and implement a new Sales and Operations Planning system on time and under budget. They were well organized, provided great updates and kept us informed of issues and offered solid solutions to keep the momentum needed to complete the effort.
I’ve worked closely with the Principal members of ChainSequence® to develop and implement a comprehensive, end-to-end planning process for a global multi-billion dollar corporation. The effort proved to be game-changing with significant improvements in on-time delivery and customer commitments, excess and obsolescence, and planning cycle times. ChainSequence helped transform our business from a good supply chain to a best-in-class supply chain.

They have a strong command of leading supply chain practices & tools in semiconductor and other high tech segments, and with a talented, and deep experienced team, they can help a company develop and enhance their value chain in planning, fulfillment, material management and customer facing functions.
ChainSequence® was able to create and articulate a vision for how S&OP would work for Tree Top from day one. Bill came in and got us started on the right path by reviewing our existing process and gave us an unbiased assessment of where we were at and quickly focused our S&OP improvement efforts towards areas that would have an immediate and meaningful impact on our business. S&OP has started us on the path of better alignment, consensus and clear accountability.
When we initiated our advanced planning systems project, we chose ChainSequence® to guide us through the business process development phase. Their extensive experience in high-tech supply chain planning provided our process teams with a “straw man” that allowed them to focus on defining those elements that are unique to our business. The result is a well-documented business process for our IT organization to follow in implementing our system.
