Clearly, A Must See at Gartner Executive Supply Chain Conference

Published May 9th, 2014 by Bill DuBois 1 Comment

It’s another exciting time for the Kinaxis team as we gear up for the 2014 Gartner Executive Supply Chain Conference. I’m especially excited to be back hosting the Late Late Supply Chain Show once again. This year our theme is “Achieving “3D” Vision: Defining, Designing, Delivering End-to-End Supply Chain Processes”.

Along with our own Late Show favorite, Trevor Miles we’ll be joined by a panel of experts to clear the air on supply chain visibility. Trevor has written extensively on the challenges associated with achieving true supply chain visibility and the changes over the years that’s driving the complexity.

Trevor and the panel will provide real world examples of what you can do to overcome the challenges associated with global visibility but I, for one don’t think it’s that complex. I simply put on my Google Glasses, searched supply chain visibility and got all the clarity I needed. With my Google Glasses on, here’s what I see:

True Supply Chain Visibility is more than just seeing what’s in front of you.

You need to understand what’s going on around you.

How that will affect you.

How it will affect others.

You need to see the big picture.

Sometimes things aren’t always obvious.

Focus on what’s important to drive profitability and reduce costs.

And most importantly you need to feel as close to those Supply Chain partners as if they were right next to you.

Call me a “glass hole” but I think that’s all there is to it. I’m sure Trevor and the panel will clear up anything I’m missing. If you’re at the conference, be sure to drop by the Kinaxis booth to say hi and join us for the Late Late Supply Chain show.

    Supply chain overseeing is management of supply arrangement of associations, individuals innovations and assets which are included in handling and supply from the makers to the clients. It is a long chain with complex structures all weave together.
