All organizations have supply chains with varying degrees of complexity and opportunities for value creation, cost reduction, and visibility and innovation enhancement. Organizations can leverage the DARE Model to identify where in their supply chain systems opportunities for enhanced profitability, innovation, and cost reduction can be targeted.

The DARE Model enables the removal or reduction of systemic waste, non-value-add elements, complexity, and is a driver for the realization of simplicity and operational cohesiveness. The model aides in radically reducing the Total Cost to Serve and Total Cost of Ownership. Once challenges have been identified and ran through either the PDCA or DMAIC Problem Solving Model you are you on the way to realizing great cost reduction and innovation.

Did you know that up to 60% of supply chain activities do not add value to the value chain?
This 60% is waste!
