Accurate supply chain planning is more difficult to achieve than ever before. The pace of change in products, seasons, and consumer taste is unprecedented. The omnichannel age has brought a new level of complexity to patterns of demand. Manufacturers, retailers, and distributors are finding it increasingly difficult to draw on data from multiple sources and turn it into accurate forecasts.
So how do we derive order from this chaos of information?
How do we align all parts of the supply chain to create customer-focused organizations that can quickly adapt to shifting demand?
In this session, we’ll discuss:
1. Common pain points and pitfalls for supply chain planners
2. How the lines between planning and execution are beginning to blur
3. The benefits of integrating supply chain planning across the organization (integrating units like finance and sales)
4. How disruptive technologies will shape the supply chain of the future
