Supply chain transformation and consulting

How does a supply chain consultant approach a problem scenario from definition to translation (quantitatively) and derive a strategic roadmap for its solution? Is there is a specific example/use-case that you can site to elucidate a solution roadmap.Preferably related to optimization, automation or transformation of processes.

Your post made me think deeper about the industry. A strategic roadmap needs not only a study but a gathering of information from the people concerned in the related procedures. Optimization of a procedure in the process is always the direction but it should be remembered that when it ain’t broke there is no need to fix it.

Pardon me for this comment but it looks like you are fishing for technical information. If you are in need of specific examples, I don’t think there is someone here who would provide the information you need or maybe I am wrong and I hope I am wrong.

@Alexandoy .Just to get different perspectives on structure of approach.There are books,but a practical word of mouth is appreciated.No hidden agenda.I am sorry if such an impression was formed.I just went into a lot of detailing,maybe that caused the skepticism.

Thank you for the explanation. Now I understand and pardon me for my skepticism on your post. I agree that experience is better than what you can find from the books because the book may be based on theories. If I can share, the basic optimization for the transport of goods is the use of the GPS and CCTV in the delivery trucks. There was no technology before such that trucks can arrive at any time with a prepared alibi for the delayed delivery. Now trucks cannot divert from the route because of the tracking system that would reveal their shenanigans.
