The evolution of Supply Chain Planning (SCP) is now in its third decade.
Over the past 30 years, many technology vendors have come and gone; but supply chain planning, as organizations grow more complex, is now more critical to drive corporate performance.
The need is greater, but the barriers for adoption remain.
There are three barriers that are consistent through the evolution of the technologies.
When the organization is in place, the change management issues are tackled, the right leadership support is present, and technologies are deployed correctly, the Return on Investment (ROI) of SCP is an impressive 7-12 months.
As seen in this study, a greater ROI is possible when companies deploy industry-specific Best-of-Breed solutions (as opposed to extended solutions from Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) providers like SAP and Oracle). In addition, the use of newer forms of network design technologies, to enable the modeling of velocity and variability within end-to-end networks, offers even greater ROI opportunities.
In this study, we share insights on these findings to help you and your organization drive a faster and more impactful ROI for your business.
