Logility Monthly Supply Chain Trends and Insights
By Winfred Amoako & Lachelle Buchanan
We are living in tumultuous times with supply chains that stretch around the world, often have obscure operations, and are vulnerable to disruption in a thousand different ways. Does this make forecasting and supply chain planning impossible? No. But it makes agile, continuous planning, and the digital supply chain platforms that enable it, more important than ever. You need to be able to sense and respond to these disruptions as they happen in order to ensure business continuity.
This newsletter looks at four essential elements of agile planning: precision forecasting, product shortages, truly transparent fulfillment, and end-to-end supply chain visibility. We uncover what’s at the heart of these issues, how to meet their challenges, and how a digital supply chain platform is essential to unlock agile planning. You can also learn how multinational conglomerate Johnson Controls transformed its supply chain with the kind of integrated, continuous planning we’re talking about.
Sense and Respond to Supply Chain Disruptions with Agile Planning
Causal forecasting shines a light on, and isolates, actual demand signals from market “chatter,” thereby improving forecast quality. Be proactive by using a causal forecasting solution to leverage data you already own, or model additional data sources that could help explain demand variability.
Product shortages have plagued the supply chain since the start of the pandemic. Now, recent developments in China, Ukraine, and more have added another layer of uncertainty to planning for business continuity. This blog explores the product shortages most likely to disrupt businesses and what you can do to maintain operational continuity.
It’s no secret that order fulfillment is complex with many moving parts. Yet, today’s customers demand speed and efficiency in fulfillment. Achieving this requires deep insight into the entire multi-stage supply chain, from order receipt to final delivery. Here’s how to keep customers happy with the insights you need for faster fulfillment.
Today’s supply chains are messy, tangled beasts. Even in the best of times, they can be unwieldy, and keeping track of your suppliers, your suppliers’ suppliers, and… You know the drill. Supply chain visibility has become critical, so we’ll look at what good supply chain visibility really means, why it’s important, and why you need a unified digital supply chain platform to achieve it.
Every business ‒ regardless of size, industry, or market ‒ can relate to the same challenge: customer frustration. It’s incredibly complicated to pinpoint when an order will ship and when it will arrive, and customers are looking for answers. For Johnson Controls, a significant component of the answer begins with being capable to plan and turning those “plans” into customer promises.
