As a leading player in consulting, McKinsey guides its clients through the design and implementation of operational strategies that will be resilient, while creating agility and a product portfolio that is commercially and operationally optimised. An interdisciplinary approach - drawing insights from commercial, marketing, IT and digital and product design - this helps clients to unlock next-level productivity gains.

Through McKinsey’s Manufacturing and Supply Chain:

Take a holistic approach to transformation to capture end-to-end value

McKinsey shows its clients how to drive the next S-curve to discover value that is hidden at the intersection of functions - even well-performing ones. More than digitising operations, McKinsey leverages digital and analytics to fundamentally transform innovative manufacturing and supply chain operations.

Transform manufacturing processes for better productivity

McKinsey empowers organisations to significantly increase both productivity and effectiveness of core processes through offerings that encompass everything from digital diagnostics to plant transformations, order management, asset productivity, predictive maintenance, resource-production manufacturing and lean warehousing. 

Boost operational health by identifying skill gaps and building capabilities

Successful manufacturing requires a sweeping upgrade of skills and capabilities, as manufacturers compete with new and agile “digitally native” competitors. McKinsey partners with its clients to create foundational enablers and develops skills through capability building to create rapid and sustained impact. 

Create a quality culture to establish a competitive advantage

McKinsey allows its clients to consistently meet and exceed customer expectations at all touchpoints through benchmarking, developing quality and compliance strategies, and remediation services across the entire value chain and product life cycle. 

Leverage digital and autonomous supply chain opportunities

McKinsey helps its clients to embrace the opportunity of supply chain 4.0 by introducing IoT, robotics and analytics - which results in a system that enables organisations to react quickly and improve both company performance and customer satisfaction. This digitally connected ecosystem and real-time visibility helps in the removal of silos across the supply chain function, meaning lower costs, smaller inventories and fewer lost sales.
