Improve your grip on supply chain & manufacturing processes
Supply chain and manufacturing processes are complex. Just maintaining a detailed and up-to-date record of your processes, business rules and interdependencies is often a challenge in itself. Add to that the changing nature of for instance market demand and legislation, and you could easily spend more time on process analysis and impact assessments than on running the daily operations. Accurate impact assessments of changes are critical, yet time consuming and complex. Speeding up the process often results in inadequate insight. Being thorough takes far too long. Both often result in high cost of failure due to stand stills, rework, non-compliance, loss of sales, inventory turnover and other disruptions.
What you need is the ability to quickly and thoroughly assess the impact of changes throughout your entire manufacturing and supply chain operations. See which element are affected and what needs to be done to implement the required changes. Our YMTY solution will help you to do exactly this…all of this.

Beat the change, before it beats you!
In recent weeks, I have visited a large number of companies struggling with implementing changes that must take place. Each company has its own challenges, but there's a pattern. Changes are often in implementing legislation, updates of ICT systems or the introduction of new production processes.
The pattern of these fundamental changes is that there is a lack of insight where the changes impact. Requirements remain vague correctness and completeness unsure. Moreover, the way of capturing the requirements are not consistent in method and depth. There is too much rework on already existing material.
Fortunately there is now a standard supported by a tooling that helps to solve these dilemmas. It's called YMTY, and ensures right first time; 20% less leadtime in the analysis phase and 50% higher quality requirements. In addition, the supply chain and manufacturing industry standards are part of YMTY. This makes it possible to be even faster, and unambiguous towards interaction with your business partners. Obviously YMTY also helps to keep the documentation review structured and audits more efficient.
In short: Beat the change, before it beats you!
