Retailers and distributors alike have attempted to solve their inventory challenges by using forecasting tools to determine what to buy and when to buy it. A better approach is to change the flow of inventory by reducing cycle times, more effective inventory positioning, and synchronizing supply chains based on the variability of demand.
Supply chain visibility is the Holy Grail for warehouses and distribution centers where the fast and efficient movement of goods is the solution to satisfying customer demand.
This is especially true for the 68% of companies which are not satisfied with material movement efficiency from source to destination. These companies are seeking new ways to get the right goods to the right place at the right time. They are finding that change, complexity, compliance, competition, and connectivity are leading to further confusion.
During this Webcast our panel will explore how supply chain design is being leveraged as a competitive weapon by some of the world’s largest companies as well as provide key recommendations for a successful implementation of a supply chain design center of excellence within your business.
