Based in Norfolk and with a mission to support the growth of the local economy , Adept Supply Chain Solutions Ltd (ASCS) are results-driven specialists in helping businesses of all sizes (from sole-trader and micro to SME’s) strengthen their internal and external supply chains to achieve increased competitive advantage and sustainable year-on-year organic growth, through holistic business transformation and process reengineering activities.  Focusing on understanding the needs and wants of your customer(s) so that in turn, we understand your own needs and wants, goals and objectives, we will deliver your business transformation via a structured approach to Continuous Improvement, Change Management and Culture Change.  We do this by utilising best-practice analytical, problem-solving and control tools and techniques, including Lean Six-Sigma.

Through our 'WIN' (Waste Is Needless!) programme of structured business transformation, we can help you improve your productivity and profitability by removing elements of wastes (costs) from your value-streams.  We can either help you achieve more added-value with the same effort or, the same added-value with less effort. The emphasis is on your business working smarter rather than harder!

All productivity and efficiency improvements are measurable in terms of key business performance metrics including Quality, Cost and Delivery.  Although the roots of ‘Lean Thinking’ lay within the (predominately automotive) manufacturing sector, the core Lean methodology and associated tools are applicable and beneficial to any size or type of business, in any market sector.  However, because no two businesses are the same, our solutions are bespoke to each client.

We can either deliver the improvement activities for you directly or alternatively, train your appointed internal ‘Change Agents’.  Either way, we promote employee engagement across your business and a cultural (mindset) change to maximise the benefits of all improvement activities.



Albert Einstein famously quoted: "The significant problems we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them“.  We can act as a fresh pair of eyes looking in on your business and more readily identify the ‘abnormal’ conditions that have potentially become the norm to yourselves.

Cash-flow is the life-blood of your business!  We will ensure that your products, processes and people are correctly aligned with your strategic plan, resulting in your bottom-line being directly improved through improved cash-flow and increased profit retention.  Typical benefits of working with us will include helping you to:

  - Implement strategic planning
  - Map your value stream(s)
  - Maximise employee engagement and ensure everyone is doing the right thing, at the right time.
  - Configure your workplace for optimum efficiency and productivity.
  - Implement Visual Management systems for real-time business performance status monitoring.  
  - Improve customer service-levels through imncreased levels of customer satisfaction.
  - Implement effective production forecasting and capacity planning including people and equipment utilisation.
  - Skills-gap and training requirements analysis.
  - Implementation of effective 'Risk & Mitigation' assessments and 'Business Continuity' plans.
  - Design and manage a sustainable improvement plan to map your improvement journey.
  - Identify your barriers to growth and implement appropriate effective and sustainable counter-measures.
  - Implementation of the 6S and 8-Wastes improvement tools.
  - Reduce process variation, equipment down-time (OEE) and levels of internal defects and subsequent rework.
  - Improved cashflow through reduced inventory of direct materials and finished goods and increased raw material stock turns.
  - Improve staff morale and motivation.


The first step on your business growth journey with us is our free and without obligation, ’Business Vitality & Growth Mapping Review' at your premises.  Taking no more than a couple of hours of your time, this review provides a fresh viewpoint on the key aspects of managing your business including an objective review of your business plan, analysis of your current status and understanding where you want to take your business.  Subsequently, we will identify and agree areas of improvement with you.

Whether your product or service is at the concept stage or, you are an already well-established business, we can help you design and implement a robust and deliverable strategic plan for increased and sustainable growth and business success!
