Supply Chain Distribution Trends in an Improving Economy

An improving economy gives businesses an opportunity to reassess their strategies, plans and tactics as well as the impetus to tune up their operations.

Four trends are emerging as best practices with the potential to transform the way supply chain managers use technology and leverage operations intelligence:

•  Data mining, predictive analytics, and performance metrics to forecast business conditions and plan improvements

•  WCS helping companies make the transition from manual processes to automated, intelligent systems

•  Growing use of simulation, not only to evaluate the impact of automation integration and volume/capacity throughput changes, but also to perform real-time testing to optimize daily workflow

•  Employing more sophisticated network analyses through the use of custom modeling in the planning, design and implementation of the distribution network
