Market Modeling & Analysis

Understanding the outlook for key variables of a market, such as lead time, capacity, price, and market concentration, is critical to deciding the right partners, setting the right price, and targeting the right commercial goals. At BSI, we use our proprietary market modeling tool to generate data that you can count on.

Our model runs on thousands of external and internal data feeds, and contains 2 million interactive data elements such as supplier financial and operating data, sales, demand, purchases, imports and exports, cost breakdowns, cost trends, capital expenditure, net operating profit, gross margins, historical and forecast demand, costs, capacity utilization, prices, profit margins, and lead times.

International Price Intelligence

“Should-cost” estimates based on our unique methodology, which is based on our global cost and price database that spands several decades, Activity-Based Costing (ABC) and the methodology we have developed and codified in our books and internal training materials. We verify and validate by benchmarking, and by “fitting” the cost of major components to the specific engineering requirements of each project based on our proprietary “price cubes.”

“Should-Cost” & Value Chain Engineering

For buyers, effective supply chain management should make operations more agile and less costly. We have literally “written the book” on methods and techniques to reduce cost and improve quality simultaneously by acting on the end-to-end supply chain. For suppliers, value chain design should result in delighted customers, marketing flexibility, and enhanced innovation and speed to market.

Cross-Border Supply Chain Design

Knowing the supply chain configuration at the other end of the world is essential to building a regional or national business with far-flung suppliers. We analyze and provide guidance for optimizing, the supply chain from the point of extraction to the point of consumption, and eventually, disposal.

Digital Supply Chain Platform Design & Implementation

New supply chains involve close coordination with likely suppliers, which requires new platforms for transacting. Blockchain has become a favorite platform for secure multiparty transactions. which businesses and companies are using it, and how? We are deeply experienced in market intelligence and analysis of data platforms, architecture and governance, both for government and for private commercial trading networks.
