Supply Chain in a Digital Economy

August 30, 2018

Digitization of the economy is continuing to accelerate the pace of innovation, shortening the product lifecycle and increasing the demand volatility. At the same time supply chains are becoming global and increasingly complex. To be in a position to create and capture opportunities, companies must develop an environment in which they can manage information and processes simultaneously across the extended supply chain. This evolution of supply chains is more connected, intelligent, responsive, and predictive.It enables companies to drive customer-centric processes and deliver personalized products uniquely built and delivered for the “segment of one.” These demanding customers have to be serviced across a business network of global partners that are increasingly challenged by resource scarcity. This transformation will continue to impact the business processes and systems that are required to remain competitive. It will change how we design, plan, make, ship, and operate our products and assets.
