Strategic Category Management & Modeling

Home » Strategic Category Management & Modeling

Traditionally companies heavily depended heavily on suppliers to prove competitive pricing. It is extremely difficult to prove that the suppliers were wrong due to the lack of knowledge of that specific category and difficulty in accessing market intelligence information . We have a team of experts specialized in strategic categories, such as Gas Turbines, Compressors, Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG), Pumps, Generators, etc. Our team will work with our customers very closely to build long term strategies without compromising performance, quality and value creation. Our knowledge will help our clients to lead negotiations and be very successful in the negotiations.

Our focus is established on a strategic vision, backed by transparency, cost competitiveness, cost based pricing versus market based pricing, performance, supply assurance and reliability by:

  • Establishing a “Should Cost” Model tied to OEM’s actual cost drivers
  • Manage competitive global sourcing & pricing visibility
  • Standardization driven stocking strategy (i.e. formal vendor managed versus optimized company stock)
  • Lean process improvement to drive efficiency and to eliminate non-value added steps
  • Training, Mentoring
  • Implementation
  • Governance & Sustainability
