As we enter the new decade, supply chains are more and more complex with larger (than ever before) dependence on suppliers and rippling ramifications (both positive and negative) globally. Manufacturing products in facilities 10,000 miles away in Asia, for use by customers in the US and other parts of the world impact costs, but geopolitical shifts can cause negative impacts.
Add to this distance (and corresponding transit/lead times) the added complexity of translating customer forecasts (what customers will need in 100-500 days) into build/buy forecasts (what we will buy or build 10,000 miles away) – in an economy of hyper-customization, demanding on-time metrics, with improving quality and social responsibility metrics and we have compounded the challenge. Add in constraints from finance leadership, board of directors, and the financial markets such as improved working capital, better gross margins, faster customer shipments, higher customer satisfaction, and the fun really begins!
