Lucas Indian Service Partners with Vector Consulting Group to revamp its Supply Chain
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Vector Consulting Group, the largest consulting firm in the space of Theory of Constraints consulting in India, has entered into a multi-year engagement with Lucas Indian Service (LIS) to build an agile supply chain using principles of Theory of Constraints.

Through Theory of Constraints, Lucas Indian Service intends to provide a high availability in supply chain while reducing overall inventory. This will be achieved by switching from forecast based inventory movement to consumption based inventory movement.

"Most auto supply chain in the spare parts distribution is based on forecast based push methodology which result in very high stocks while having stock outs. Consequently, distributers have low inventory turns as a result the distributers restrict range and reach resulting in lose-lose situation for both distributer and supplier, said Kiran Kothekar, Founding Director, Vector Consulting Group. Lucas Indian Service (LIS) is one of the few pioneers in the auto supply chain which has taken the step to transform itself into a true pull based agile supply chain and build on principles of real win-win partnership with channel partners."

According to Sandeep Abbi, President at Lucas Indian Service Ltd, "Vector Consulting Group will be the implementation partner for transforming the supply chain of Lucas Indian Service using the TOC principles. The solution will help Lucas Indian Service (LIS) to improve supply chain responsiveness by maintaining inventory levels in line with actual consumption levels. The solution will result in substantial improvements in availability of spare parts offered by Lucas Indian Service (LIS) at the point of sale while reducing inventory in the system significantly."
