Supply Chain Transformation Powered by Automation

HCL partnered with a leading specialty chemicals and performance materials company throughout their SCM transformation journey.

The client, headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, operates across 20+ countries with 36 manufacturing plants, eight research and development facilities, and 28 sales offices. The challenges in achieving supply chain excellence were:

  • The complex nature of the chemical industry, demanding scrutiny and diligence
  • High-demand fluctuations driven by market supply and demand conditions, cost, and availability of raw materials
  • Increased utilization of resources for demand management
  • High inventory levels, leading to increased inventory carrying costs
  • The need for modeling capacity and resource constraints for production planning
  • The need for customized solutions that address unique business requirements

HCL’s supply chain management center of excellence (SCM CoE) delivered the following business impact in terms of:

  • Improved forecast accuracy 
  • Reduced costs of inventory carrying and improved stock availability across the right SKUs
  • Increased fill rates, reduced back orders, and overall improvement of on-demand delivery to the customer
