Smith & Nephew needed to re-engineer its product handling efficiencies by creating a platform to achieve ongoing process optimisation, track and trace legislation and support market expansion throughout Europe. The need to combine managing a complex supply chain with overseeing the operational challenges had to be balanced across the requirement of interacting efficiently with large numbers of suppliers. Track and trace directives also needed to be met through their supply chain to enable compliance with new serialisation regulations to meet their customers’ strict auditory requirements.
Rocket Consulting provided Smith & Nephew with rapid delivery of European operational-capability Medical Device Supply Chain for compliance to Track and Trace legislation. We worked with Smith & Nephew to achieve track and trace requirements with efficient product handling and throughput requirements. This was achieved this with SAP supply chain software and automated materials flow system.
The result was rapid delivery of a European operational-capability Medical Device Supply Chain with compliance to Track and Trace Legislation.
