10 June 2020,  11:00am (UK Time)

You can only manage what you can see; therefore the first step to mitigating supply chain ‘whiplash’ from the impact of COVID-19 is to have visibility of your complete end-to-end supply chain.

Improving the integrity of the data in your supply chain

The goal of this presentation is to help you ensure that the information/data coming from your supply chain is accurate, from end-to-end.
• The decisions you make based on your supply chain data are only as good as the information sources you rely on.
• If you cannot identify the problem correctly, you cannot trust the solution.
• Manufacturing is full of examples of working processes that provide wrong or incomplete data.

Where Data Leads, Success Follows: Building the Data Driven Supply Chain

• How do we streamline the supply chain and integrate multiple functions?
• How do we ensure our supply chains are resilient, enabling us to be faster and more agile to shocks?
• What would our supply chain look like if forecasting was truly data driven?

These are the big questions we’ll be answering in this discussion. We’ll also take a deep dive into how the sales, channels, inventory, and operations teams within our organisations can better align and connect with each other to help drive more efficient data-driven transformational change.

Rob will discuss:
• Predictive analytics to improve forecasting, customer relationship management and inventory control
• Closing the loop with the end customer is a key feed into delivering more accurate and predictive demand profile
