Growth in new markets introduces new costs to control, regulations to manage, and supply chain complexities to solve. Longer, more complicated cold chains mean that collaboration with third party logistics providers (3PLs) can help make the difference between profitable simplicity and unmanageable complexity. Companies are increasingly relying on their 3PLs for services such as monitoring and intervention, contingency planning, and cost control. Reduce risk by improving packaging, visibility, and establishing QA best practices. Improved visibility, new tools, new monitoring capabilities and appropriate packaging can also help drive down costs for shippers.

Good supply chain management is essential to your operational efficiency, customer centricity, compliance, carbon footprint, and ultimately, your overall success. If handled correctly, your supply chain should improve customer service—along with the reputation of your brand—and boost your bottom line. But, as with many areas of business, the rules of the game are changing. What’s changing? Well, everything. New regulations, increased buyer expectations, shorter product lifecycles, fluctuations in demand, new market entrants, more ethical supplier management, poor visibility of globalized supply chains—all these things, and more, are testing the limits of the traditional supply chain model. The simple truth is that the way things used to be done, and the solutions that enabled it, are no longer up to the job.

Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT. Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

Organizations that create and deliver software — whether for their own IT operations, for the packaged applications market, or as the core of their final product, as in the systems space — must grapple not only with today’s competitive landscape, but also with increased complexity in their processes and supply chains. Many factors serve to complicate software delivery, but differentiation lies at the heart of managing this complexity. This smartpaper explores how effective quality management creates opportunities to deliver key business benefits, such as improved market share, higher customer satisfaction, and increased brand equity.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help your company keep up with the increasing complexity of developing today’s high-tech products. While smaller companies may use relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger companies rely on full-featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global supply chains. Mid-size companies can feel stuck because PDM is too basic, but PLM feels out of reach. This resource will help you: • Recognize why “simple” solutions fall short and do not support your capabilities • Better connect to customers and the supply chain • Drive higher product development speed • Get started with the right PLM solution Midsize manufacturers need a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time. So, what’s the right size PLM to fit a midsized high-tech company? Download this resource and take a look.

A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source. Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.

Digital transformation is poised to change the supply chain more profoundly than any other functional area and more dramatically than at any point in its history in terms of driving efficiency and resiliency to disruption. In the context of the challenges facing supply chains, both now and in the future, it becomes clear that the old ways of working will not suffice and that even best-in-class performance today is unlikely to be good enough in the future. It is the view of IDC that the supply chain must become a "thinking" supply chain, one that is intimately connected to all data sources, enabled with comprehensive and fast analytics, openly collaborative through cloud-based commerce networks, conscious of cyberthreats, and cognitively interwoven. According to IDC supply chain research, technology is emerging as a prime driver of change, particularly artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

In the beginning of 2019, a National Safety Council (NSC) study revealed that for the first time in US recorded history, the odds of dying from an opioid overdose (1:96) surpassed those of dying in an auto accident (1:103). As a result, opioid overdoses are now the number one cause of preventable injury deaths in the United States. The growing trend of opioid-related workplace incidents is a major concern for supply chains across the world. In fact, a recent study by Massachusetts Department of Public Health shows higher opioid overdose incidents occurring in industries that have a higher chance of worker-related injury. Among these, construction and manufacturing are the two industries most heavily affected. This whitepaper discusses tips for dealing with the opioid epidemic and gives clarity around OSHA drug testing regulations.

Yes, you can build better trust in your data —but only if the organization can collect, structure, analyze and protect data in the right ways with the right tools. Modern supply chains integrate a host of related parties (and human error) into knowledge systems, which include business metrics, supplier sustainability performance data, and even intellectual property (IP). This is why systems and data must be built around secure access and verifiable trust. To find out more, download this report today!

For years, manufacturers have been trying to streamline processes and associated supply chains by building marketplaces, standardized exchanges, and monolithic systems. In many cases, these solutions missed the mark, resulting in fragmented and brittle processes without easy data sharing. Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, can potentially solve these problems. Sharing information via a trusted distributed network with embedded business logic offers many benefits for manufacturing, especially when combined with the IoT and AI communities. Watch this webinar: Blockchain & Manufacturing: A Smarter Way to Drive Efficiency in the Semiconductor and Electronics Supply Chains, with speaker Nelson Petracek, chief technology officer, TIBCO Software.

As a small-to-midsize fabricated metals manufacturer serving large customers within complex global supply chains, how do you maintain preferred vendor status? The whole world is your competition so you need to step up to meet increasingly demanding customer expectations. Your customers will expect mass personalization with shorter lead times whether the order is large or small—without sacrificing compliance with their industry’s quality requirements. To meet these demands—despite a skills shortage and volatile material costs and availability—you’ve got to put digital transformation at the top of your agenda.
