The ERP Market 2001 And Beyond - Aging Gracefully With The ‘New Kids On The Block’

The Future of the Manufacturing Supply Chain—Networked, Mobile, and Collaborative


As we move through 2015, the subject of the future of the supply chain has come back into focus. What does the future supply chain look like, and what do we expect some of the essential characteristics to be? Although this requires a degree of speculation, there are also some trends and technologies that clearly are having, and will continue to have, an enormous impact on the supply chain:

  • The next-generation supply chain will be a networked supply chain that will sit at the center of three lobes—demand aware, supply visible, and innovation networked.
  • Mobility, as well as modern mobile tools, continues to transform the way supply chains conduct their business.
  • Collaboration, via traditional or modern social media tools, is a critical capability for the future of the supply chain.
The ability to fully integrate the demand, supply, and innovation aspects of the supply chain into one networked entity is both exciting and unnerving. Data identification, capture, and analysis play a huge role in this future supply chain, and unless manufacturers plan to add employees (which we can assure you, they do not), the only practical solution is the deployment of technology solutions. In this white paper we discuss the importance of networks, mobility, and collaboration and the role we believe they must play in the future of the supply chain and the benefits that can accrue.
