In the world of supply chain, “collaboration” is everyone’s favorite buzzword. But modern-day technology is investing the word with new meaning.
Collaboration can be considered an inevitable outgrowth of global supply-management, which by definition requires close ties among multiple partners in order to plan and move product to market efficiently. But the coming of new technology — the internet of things, big data and mobile applications — has brought new possibilities to the idea. Collaboration today is both easier and more essential than ever before. But what exactly is it? On this episode, we speak with Shaun Phillips, director of product management with QAD DynaSys. He offers his definition of collaboration in a time of technological change. And he discusses whether or not the future of collaboration lies entirely with machines talking to other machines. Will humans, ultimately, be out of the loop? Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
