Most product companies today have a diverse global supplier base, with complex, interdependencies particularly in the sub-tier supply chains, that are often unknown. This leads to risk aggregation in the lower tiers that can create a reverse bullwhip effect on disruption impact. Companies need to be alert and aware of global events which can have a ripple effect and impact day to day operational performance. Consistent supply chain performance is necessary for achieving strong revenue growth targets. Supplier issues in the sub-tier chain globally can pose a major threat by introducing quality, availability and performance problems.
Deep supply chain intelligence, strong analytics and continuous scanning of problems around the horizon can ease much of the strain. Hear experts from the industry who have turned these challenges into a source of competitive advantage by investing in end to end supply chain resiliency.
This event is hosted by Bose Corporation, sponsored by the Global Supply Chain Resiliency Council.
