Leaders in every industry are exploring ways to get ahead – and stay ahead – at the same time that they are adopting new ways to source raw materials, manufacture finished goods and fulfill customer demand. These companies are also challenged by various drivers of change:
- Customers, both end-consumers and businesses, expect a greater variety of products to be available to them at the time and place of their choosing, with short demand lead times.
- Competition from new entrants is increasing.
- Regulators in many industries are tightening the mandates for quality and traceability.
- New sensors and predictive analytics technologies are making it possible to more accurately predict customer demand and produce and distribute products in smaller batches — even unit package sizes.
The question is, what technologies can address these challenges and enable current operating and business models to digitally transform into their future state? The best-run companies continuously align and realign their supply chain strategy with their goto- market strategy.
