Thomas Goldsby, Professor & Haslam Chair in Logistics in the Supply Chain Management Department at the University of Tennessee, sketches a picture of how supply chains might be permanently changed by the pandemic, even as they adjust to its end.
No matter how well your team has done its supply chain planning, it seems like exceptions keep arising and you’re constantly in fire-fighting mode. In the case of supply chain, the issue isn’t so much about operations, it’s about the ability to collaborate quickly and effectively when an exception deviates from the established plan. This is why forward-thinking organizations are creating Centers of Excellence for their supply chain.
Guy Harrison, general manager of risk and compliance with Dow Jones, describes the risks that companies face today from new sanctions and regulations imposed by the U.S. and other governments around the world.
It takes a village to take a product from concept to cash, but the supply chains that support this are a complex web, with limited integration between financial forecasting, planning, manufacturing execution, logistics and key partners/suppliers. Spotting potential challenges and facilitating constant communication across the extended supply chain and entire enterprise is critical to meet ongoing customer demand and market volatility. While maintaining effective communication can be complex, collaboration shouldn’t be chaotic.
