Visibility is hard to achieve, yet it is a top priority of executives. Processes, networks, technologies are constantly changing, making visibility hard to manage. The industry has been talking supply chain visibility for such a long time, but today’s discussion is quite different.
In the past, companies used event management and alerting solutions for visibility into their supply chains. However, these solutions were not very robust and generated false alerts, even missed alerts, so companies turned them off. These solutions suffered from data quality and data collection issues.
In the latest Talking Logistics Episode, Adelante SCM’s President, Adrian Gonzalez and Elemica’s Vice President, Product Management, Cindi Hane discuss what supply chain visibility means to executives today, lessons learned and future opportunities.
