About Life Sciences Product Supply and Operations

Our practice


It is a tall order for Life Sciences companies to consistently deliver the right combination of products, at the right time, at the right cost. Achieving these goals means simultaneously improving the speed of delivery, increasing the quality of products and lowering costs, leaving little or no room for inefficiency. At the same time, the Life Sciences industry is going through unprecedented change, putting new pressures on supply chain and manufacturing operations organizations.

That is where we can help. Deloitte Consulting LLP’s Life Sciences Product Supply and Operations practice assists clients in meeting the overall goal of delivering quality products to their customers within business constraints. We work with your organization and you while providing both advisory and implementation support for multiple services. Consistently ranked as one of the top Life Sciences and Health Care Consulting organizations, we feel fortunate to call more than 80 percent of Fortune 1000 life sciences companies our clients. This includes 10 of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies, 10 of the top 10 medical equipment manufacturers and 10 of the 10 largest biotechnology companies as well as many high-growth, emerging companies. We have an in-depth understanding of the nuances of specific sectors – pharmaceuticals, medical device and diagnostics, consumer health, biotech and distribution services.


We have completed over 300 life sciences supply chain projects over the last 5 years with many of the largest global life sciences companies. Select project experiences with our pharma and biopharma clients include sales & operations planning redesign, cold chain logistics, inventory rationalization and complexity reduction, secure value chain and serialization scenario development, quality audit and organization redesign, among others. Our practitioners focus on providing executable strategies, delivering high value projects and achieving rapid business results for our biopharmaceutical clients.

Medical devices and equipment

Within the $100B+ medical device and equipment market, we work with clients that produce therapeutic and diagnostic devices, including both low and high-volume devices, as well as complex implantable cardiovascular and orthopedic devices, surgical and wound-care products, image and diagnostic equipment and other essential medical equipment. We have over 200 practitioners with significant medical device experience in both industry and consulting, who have conducted hundreds of global supply chain and operations transformations for leading medical device companies. We focus on results and value creation: the typical return on investment (ROI) for our clients ranges between 10 and 15 times our fees.
