Tap into the Power of Analytics

This talk will focus on the set of new frontiers in supply chain analytics that will lead to dramatically higher levels of performance, and what it will take to achieve these rewards. In addition, the discussion will describe new domains for supply chain analytics, as well as the opportunities and primary obstacles for each. The discussion will conclude by reviewing several ways in which the day-to-day usage of supply chain analytics will likely change in the future.

Finding the Weak Links in Global Supply Chain Risks

If just one link in the complex web of interdependent relationships falters, the entire supply chain may unravel, with consequent interruptions in manufacturing, productivity and distribution, disruptions in cash flow and credit, repercussions with customers, and other financial miseries. Hear how companies are solidifying the supply chain to decrease "ripple effect" damage, and learn about best practices for proactively integrating suppliers into business continuity risk management planning.
