Who We Are



SCLinx is a management consulting firm specializing in executive supply chain coaching for oilfield services companies.

We believe oilfield supply chains can deliver competitive advantage to products and services companies only when their goals are anchored in the customer’s requirements. Our approach is to coach supply chain leaders and their teams to create agile oilfield service supply chains that deliver products and services as promised to the customer.

We believe competitive advantage is achieved by pursuing excellence in planning, repeatable execution, and by anchoring the supply chain in the customer’s needs.

Planning and execution improvement must focus on the links in the value chain. If the links are tightened, we can reduce inventory, lower costs and shrink lead times. If the links in the value chain are loose, we must compensate with wasteful inventory investment, higher costs, and extended lead times.

Our coaching helps companies implement Customer-Anchored Supply Chains
