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.

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).

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.

Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners. Managers of these traditional factories say the feeling is akin to flying blind. These are operations where plant floors, front offices, and suppliers operate in independent silos, where managers have only hazy visibility into downtime and quality problems, and where the root causes of inefficiencies are rarely understood or addressed.

- Supply Chains are already complex as they are – why on earth would we want to extend them? Because it’s an end-consumer driven economy. We expect to purchase products and services through multiple channels and of course we want to have these products delivered the same day. Of course the product is individualized based on my specific requirements, and yes, it goes without saying, that the products need to be compliant to regulations and standards.

In a rapidly advancing and changing market, retailers need to be prepared for the unexpected, from the impacts of new payment options, to the challenges of new entrants and innovations, increasingly complex global supply chains and digitally empowered customers looking to direct their own shopping experience. While many retailers continue to keep in-store and on-line interactions separate, the leading retailers understand that all channels must be seamlessly integrated to help ensure success — including optimizing logistics for a smarter shopping experience, managing or sourcing on-line inventory to respond to consumer demand, striking the right balance between customer satisfaction and maximising return, and space optimization in the store itself.

The role of analytics in managing, improving and ultimately transforming supply chains cannot be understated. But what about the analytics themselves? FICO’s Zahir Balaporia and renowned author Tom Davenport use the term “The Analytics Supply Chain” to reflect that the actual analytics themselves parallel supply chains, with inherent challenges and problems if things “get stuck.” Rethinking analytics in these terms can not only improve supply chain performance, but also any other business problems you seek to solve. This article targets: · Steps in the analytics supply chain and the vital role of data and analytic models · How your predictions, recommendations and insights need to rely on similar attributes to finished manufactured products; · Key questions to ask yourself in determining where you need to fix your analytics supply chain.

Major retailers and mass merchandisers are turning up the pressure on their trading partners and even other retailers to implement Global Data Synchronization (GDS) within their organizations. These advocates see GDS and participation in the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) as the best path to improving the timeliness and accuracy of their supply chains, particularly once these efforts are broadly supported across the retail supply chain landscape.
