Discover How Leading Companies Operate High Performance Supply Chains

Are you using the latest best practices to prosper in today’s competitive and volatile markets? Successful companies are driving business alignment and synchronisation in their supply chain.

Leading manufacturing supply chains exhibit some common traits that result in superior performance. We call these traits the core tenets of high performance supply chains. Over the course of this webinar we will delve into these core tenets: Customer-centricity, segmentation, business-agility, synchronisation and optimisation.

The webinar addresses the challenges being faced by supply chain planning and execution professionals and shows how to:

• Align your organisation on an integrated, rolling S&OP including Financial impact analysis

• Simulate business scenarios and their impact on operations, customers and financial results

• Use supply chain segmentation strategies to operationalise corporate S&OP objectives

• Offer a competitive advantage in servicing key customers and strategic markets differently

• Protect on a daily basis supply for strategic customers vs. other business segments

• Improve profitability and market share in constraint situations

This webinar will be co-presented with SanDisk, a global leader in flash storage solutions whose solutions can be found at more than 260,000 retail stores worldwide.
