Today’s supply chains are more global, dynamic, and complex than ever, and it is more challenging than ever for companies to synchronize supply and demand across their production, procurement, inventory, and distribution networks.
To meet customers’ ever-changing needs, cope with rising costs, competition, and complexity, and forge a path to profitability, companies must be able to effectively manage the flow of goods and services through their supply chains.
In this day and age, successful supply chain management requires:
- Superior visibility over the extended, end-to- end manufacturing and logistics network.
- The capability to automate and integrate supply chain planning and execution.
- The ability to generate plans that optimize production, distribution, and procurement operations; synchronize supply and demand; manage costs, capacity and material constraints, and disruptions; and maximize asset utilization and customer service.
- The flexibility to respond in real-time and dynamically adjust plans to cope with changes in the marketplace and unexpected disruptions.
- The power to detect future supply and demand volatility and prepare for disruptions by conducting “what-if” scenario analysis.
