Building resilient and sustainable global supply chains
The unprecedented disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way global supply chains operate. Unlike other major disruptions, such as natural disasters, this pandemic has affected both supply and demand.
At the same time, COVID-19 is also just merely exposing problems with global supply chains that have already existed. Many manufacturers have realized that small suppliers that are higher in the supply chain can be disconnected (not integrated) from downstream producers. Also, many organizations have vital systems that are outdated and do not take advantage of the latest technologies like machine learning.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many businesses in various ways. Some have seen a downturn in demand, while others have seen large spikes in demand but with disruptions from suppliers limiting their ability to meet those demands. As we start on the path to recovery, many markets are working hard to restart production and organize their supply chains.
The impending economic restart will require manufacturers and retailers to place a higher importance on agility in their supply chain.
Through this collaboration, Vanguard Software and KPMG have identified key supply chain planning capabilities that are critical for creating value and competitive differentiation during recovery. Learn how the digital capabilities of predictive planning enable businesses to create resilient and sustainable supply chains, even in a time of crisis.
