SCHANIX and Product Design
We recognize that supply chain is an integral part of a product’s design, and we have designed SCHANIX to reflect that.
For finished goods that are comprised of assembled products, a product’s design alone can imply 80 percent of its supply chain. SCHANIX builds on the traditional Design for X (DFX) approach by implementing Design for Supply, a technique which examines how to embed supply chain design within a product’s design.
For finished goods that are non-assembled products such as traded goods, SCHANIX can be a valuable tool in assisting firms in value engineering analyses and product value exercises, by flagging those products or product groups that pose high risk given their current sourcing arrangements.
