Presentation: How to Manage The Supply Chain of The Future

The supply chain of the future will no longer be driven solely with a focus on delivering the goods at the lowest cost. Rather, successful supply chains will be those that are aligned with their customers’ requirements and expectations. Indeed, the digital supply chain is upon us. In this presentation, Michigan State’s Steven A. Melnyk will identify the elements that contribute to helping firms best take advantage of the opportunities offered by the digital supply chain. First, there is the requirement for operational excellence. This is followed by the 5 s: Sensing, Scaling, Security, Social and Strategy. This presentation will discuss these issues, illustrating them with examples taken from industry.
