The visualization software proactively monitors and manages supply-chain risk. New capabilities in version 1.5 include on-the-fly value-stream mapping and alerting, and global weather alerts. Visual Command Center covers all components of an organization's global supply chain, including air, ocean, rail and truck routes; route nodes; suppliers, and manufacturing and retail locations. It monitors for related risks, such as severe weather, terrorism, transportation delays and natural disasters, and provides automatic alerts and visualization, risk assessment and communication tools for taking action against them. The update allows users to view their supply chains as a series of origin-and-destination pairs, IDV said. New routes can be added by importing data or by drawing directly on the map. The release also incorporates the ability to gather information from suppliers via online surveys.
