Supply Chain Management Overview
Organizations have gained operational efficiencies and become leaner over the last decade. But, in the process, they have become less resilient to disruptions. Visibility still seems to be the primary driver for vulnerabilities in the supply chain mainly due to lack of real time data from single source of truth. Businesses lack agility due to slow digitization of their supply chain which is significantly inhibiting them to respond to the changing customer demand and supply challenges. Suppliers are going out of business or cannot ship, and businesses cannot find an alternate supplier quickly to keep their production lines running.
Supply chains are complex systems. The key stakeholders typically involved are vendors, customers, and employees. There are various channels for engaging with these stakeholders. Collaborate with vendors via portals, process vendor payments via electronic transactions, and leverage external catalogues like Amazon Marketplace to source materials from vendors. Interact with customers via custom portals and mobile, and enable the customer buying experience with a robust e-commerce platform and POS system. Connect with employees via self-service employee portals and mobile. Empower employees with web client and mixed reality solutions to reach solutions faster.
Drive intelligent operations through a connected factory that uses IoT, AI, machine learning, and mixed reality to optimize people, processes, and equipment. Intelligent inventory management tools more accurately predict demand and optimize resources, while flexible, automated workflows accelerate product delivery and help ensure product quality and consistency
Use unified data from across the value chain to gain enhanced visibility into operations and make more informed decisions. Simplify the procurement processes by using a single application to manage contracts, vendors, and monitor on-time delivery performance. Accelerate fulfillment with order routing based on availability and capacity constraints across companies, sites, and warehouses.
Get end-to-end visibility into your warehouse operations, and more effectively manage the capacity, consumption, and movement of your raw materials and finished goods. Use intelligent warehouse management and automation capabilities to optimize put-away activities, storage across stock rooms and distribution centers, and accelerate pick-pack-ship activities to increase capacity and reduce fulfillment times.
Track and strategically deploy assets to increase productivity and improve the overall equipment effectiveness of your mission-critical assets. Maximize the longevity and performance of high-value assets while reducing costs and production downtime by more effectively predicting and planning maintenance; and simplify maintenance with a single solution that supports multiple types of maintenance, including predictive, corrective, condition, and preventative maintenance.
