Demand-Driven Sales refer to the manufacture of products on-demand, after the sale of the product to the consumer, therefore only supplying the demanded or sold quantity of product without over or underproduction, with the ultimate goal of achieving the supply-demand equilibrium.
- Turn the Sales Cycle Around - receive payment for the sold product before the product is manufactured and paid for.
- Eliminate Physical Stock - no upfront investment into physical stock and stock management as the products in a digital format.
- Reduce the Risk of Overproduction and Underproduction that result in unsold products, obsolete stock, and waste management costs or loss of potential revenue.
- Control & Extend the Product Life Cycle as the unit cost is not affected by demand peaks and troughs, or physical stock inventory.
- Reduction in Transportation Costs associated with bulk transport, stock warehousing and distribution.
Digitization of Products refers to the process of creating new products or redesigning existing, tangible products into digital products to be manufactured into physical products on-demand. Meaning that the most valuable form of the product is in digital format rather than physical stock.
- Enhanced Product Investment Management - invest in cost-effective product innovation & consumer-centric improvement, and purchase only what is needed or sold.
- Unlimited Product Library - create a digital library of products that can be produced and sold at any time and any place.
- Product Creativity & Flexibility - offer unique products that can be highly complex with market-specific adaptions.
- Country of Origin - manufacture products in strategically selected locations as the products are digitalized right up to production.
- Enhanced Speed to Market - quickly implement product iterations and respond to market demands, with fast production set up.
Decentralization of Manufacturing refers to geographically dispersed, strategically placed manufacturing facilities, enabling on-demand production in response to demand-driven sales, therefore enabling higher supply chain responsiveness, agility, and increased consumer focus.
- Business Future-Proofing by strengthening of the supply chain through de-risking, resilience and agility.
- Be More Agile - respond to market demand daily, introduce new products to new markets quickly, stay ahead of the competition.
