Supply Chain Consultants

Commercial Industry Services

Our supply chain consultants will make your warehousing and supply chain management (SCM) operations faster, more efficient, and more cost-effective.

In today’s fast-paced, highly competitive commercial environment, businesses that manufacture items for various industries or purchase and re-sell goods on an agency or distributorship basis often face significant cost and efficiency challenges in the back-end component of their business, especially in the areas of warehousing and overall SCM.

Supply Chain Consultants

Third party logistics (3PL) operations that receive, store, and distribute items on behalf of client companies usually face many of the same challenges.

Rising labor costs, increased complexity, and ever-mounting pressure from client companies and end users to deliver faster and more accurately mean that improved performance and process efficiency are a must for any warehousing/supply chain operation that wants to stay competitive going forward.

Often the responsibility for implementing warehouse and supply chain improvement projects is simply added to the workload of existing employees. In most cases, these personnel members lack the time and specific expertise, experience, and training to comprehensively study and assess the current situation, and then design and implement the required process improvements, purchasing, and deployment of more efficient equipment, technology, etc.

Government Services

Government Supply Chain Consulting Services

Government Services

Today’s ever-changing requirements on sophisticated government services supply chain and logistic models create unique operational and design demands to allow organizations to remain continually competitive.   However, when you add the complexities of providing those services to governmental stakeholders, the solution can become even more challenging.  The absolute expectations of transparent, cost competitive, secure, accurate, and on-time services, every time, make innovation in the governmental supply chain models critical.  Waller & Associates, LLC works with many government services, whether they be defense contractors, DoD, or any other list of agencies, to identify their operational challenges and develop a “hybrid” supply chain solution for long-term, continuous improvements. 

The hybrid model blends these absolute governmental requirements with the best practices of the commercial supply chain world to offer the tools, solutions, and good business habits that make a supply chain best-in-class.  Waller & Associates, LLC has the experience and expertise to offer:

Improving Productivity, Throughput and Safety through Improved Quality

With increased demand for labor and competitive labor markets, productivity and efficiency are the ultimate answers to face this ever-evolving challenge. With increased competition in markets and hubs like Memphis, Dallas, Columbus, and Atlanta, labor availability and cost are becoming extremely overwhelming, so companies are trying to rely less on labor and more on automation and innovation.   

To solve for this problem, our approach is improving processes through incremental type improvements that eliminates un-needed waste and improve performance in functions throughout government services. This is done by, and depending on the complexity of the project, a series of projects that ranges from simply “go do it” to Kaizen events to Lean Six Sigma black belt type of projects. Once these projects are completed and desired goals are attained, the step after that would be Sea Change Projects. Typically, these projects involve evaluating technologies and innovations to replace current processes with more automated ones.

At Waller and Associates, we help our clients attain this goal and solve this challenge by offering the following:

  • Modelling capacity and throughputs by function in the operation
  • Solving for and improving bottlenecks through line balancing techniques
  • Facilitating Kaizen Events on processes to help improve efficiencies and eliminate waste in processes
  • Provide ROIs and case studies for new technologies for certain applications
  • Improve overall quality by reducing over-processing and over-handling of the product throughput its life cycle
  • Designing labor standards for every function in the operation to manage performance and offer incentives for improved productivities, in other words, pay based on performance
