Topic The Supply Chain is Now a Senior Executive and Board Room Topic

The supply chain has become a strategic imperative. It is on the radar of senior executives and is being discussed in board rooms. Directives are coming from senior executives to make supply chains transparent, resilient, and flexible. Transparent:  We rely on long supply chains that snake around the globe. Rarely can we see information about our supplier’s supplier. We need to “see” everything in the plan, buy, make, move, distribute, and sell processes. Food providers need to know where specific products were harvested.  Downstream, vaccine storage temperatures must be tracked all the way to the patient. Beyond just the “working” supply chain, companies need to know what options…substitutes…are available…who else can provide what I need. Resilient: Are my sources diversified?  When I select my Tier 1 suppliers, and I’ll not select just one…I’m diversifying but are my Tier 1 suppliers using diverse Tier 2 suppliers?  Before Japan’s devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011, Toyota found out that their Tier 1 suppliers were all using the same Tier 2 suppliers…there was no diversification. Flexible: Can you respond to demand shocks?  Can you switch or even move production? Can you make modular components for products and switch the final product at the assembly point? Flexibility can payoff even in a non-crisis time but requires an investment and an understanding of the tradeoffs. If one plant is hit by a tornado and is shutdown, can another plant be used to make up for production? What data and analytics capabilities do we need to address senior executive directives?
