For a global supplier of sealing solutions, Miebach Consulting standardized package sizes to reduce supply chain costs and harmonize planning of sales and operations. The requirements for logistics, customers, and operations were analyzed in order to define the optimal standard package size per SKU.
Once the standards were established, Miebach managed the implementation phase including changes of IT systems, fostering employee acceptance, and introducing the intra-company pricing model.
