Supply Chain Services

Enhancing supply chain management begins with new product & service development where the early decisions that impact your ability to serve customers profitability are made.  Supply chains then quickly evolve to a complex maze of interaction.  We help clients develop a deliberate approach to product & service development as well as supplier interaction as a cornerstone to a competitive customer offering.  We help clients understand customer desires and behaviors, and objectively assess performance against those criteria.  We help clients compress lead times and increase quality allowing them to not only deliver solutions in a reliable manner, but also develop value-added services which profitably differentiate the enterprise from the competition.

At FBC, we are focused on helping clients understand and meet their customer requirements.  We do this by working with our clients to develop fact-based decisions to foster a culture of continuous improvement and employee engagement.  FBC helps clients identify, prioritize, plan, and execute improvement initiatives across all Supply Chain functions.

Supplier Management and Sourcing

Recent studies indicate that cost reduction and risk management  remain top priorities for most procurement executives.  Many purchasing organizations are also seeing challenges in attracting and developing teams that have the skills to execute on their procurement strategy.

Manufacturing Operations Improvement

The shift to advanced manufacturing processes and technologies continues, and small to medium-sized manufacturing companies need to ensure their manufacturing remains competitive with local and global competitors



Supply Chain Planning


Supply chains are not linear.  They are a web of complex interactions intended to provide the right customer the right product, at the right place, at the right time and price.  Elevating supply chain effectiveness involves continuously improving the understanding of customer desires and behaviors, relentlessly shortening lead times, and eliminating rework.  







Warehouse and Logistics Management

Warehouses exist to buffer against uncertainty and lost sales.  They are an investment, but in and of themselves, they provide little value unless they deliver unmet customer needs through robust logistics management and compelling value-added services.
