Supply chain control towers enable greater visibility, but they help achieve agility, resilience, reliability and responsiveness as well, according to a Capgemini paper available for download.
Supply chain visibility is the key enabler for managing a business both within the organizational boundaries as well as across the boundaries. This visibility provides speed, reliability and flexibility in order to gain a competitive advantage in the form of well controlled and managed supply chain functions. In response to the need for supply chain visibility, the leading supply chain visibility principles are increasingly being embodied in supply chain control towers.
Such a tower is a central hub with the required technology, organization and processes to capture and use supply chain data to provide enhanced visibility for short- and long-term decision making that is aligned with strategic objectives.
