Phases four through five involve implementing the designed solution and monitoring results to ensure the intended goals are achieved. With Menlo’s CarbonNet technology, supply chain sustainability is achieved through a flexible and focused platform and process technology that is sustained by Lean practices and a team of committed individuals.
“We already are seeing significant, validated results from applying our Lean methodologies and the CarbonNet software to our own operations,” said Oliverio. “That’s generated interest from several current customers who want us to expand the program outside of our four walls and help them utilize these tools and processes for carbon profiling and management of their supply chain activities.”
“This is an exciting, emerging area that’s ripe for innovative solutions,” Oliverio added. “Our approach represents a unique and interesting combination of purpose-designed software complemented by Lean tools and practices, and proven expertise in using them. We plan to commercialize CarbonNet and bring this service to the broader external market early in 2013,” he concluded.
