IBM : THE SMARTER SUPPLY CHAIN OF THE FUTURE Volatile. That’s perhaps the best word to describe today’s global marketplace. Like economies and financial markets, as supply chains have grown more global and interconnected, they’vealso increased their exposure to shocks and disruptions. Even minor missteps and miscalculations can have major consequences as their impacts spread like viruses throughout complex supply chain networks.

IBM : The Top Five Supply Chain Challenges
Cost containment Rapid, constant change is rocking this traditional area of strength and outstripping supply chain executives’ ability to adapt.Visibility Flooded with more information than ever, supply chain executives still struggle to “see” and act on the right information. Risk risk management ranks remarkably high on the supply chain agenda as well. Customer intimacy –Despite demand-driven mantras, companies are better connected to their suppliers than their customers. Globalization Contrary to initial rationale, globalization hasproven to be more about revenue growth than cost savings.

IBM : The Top Five Supply Chain Challenges

IBM : They must also be smart
Futur SCM More : Instrumented Interconnected Intelligent Instrumented Information that was previously created by people will increasingly Be machine-generated – flowing out of sensors, RFID tags, meters, actuators, GPS and more. Inventory will count itself.Containers will detect their contents. Pallets will report in if they end up in the wrong place.

IBM :They must also be smart
Interconnected The entire supply chain will be connected – not just customers, Suppliers and IT systems in general, but also parts, products and other smart objects used to monitor the supply chain. Extensive connectivity will enable worldwide networks of supply chainsto plan and make decisions together. Intelligent These supply chain decisions will also be much smarter. Advanced Analytics and modeling will help decision makers evaluate alternatives against an incredibly complex and dynamic set of risks and constraints. And smarter systems will even make some decisions automatically – increasing responsiveness and limiting the need for human intervention The “Smart map” to the SC of the Future

Learning from the Past “Knowing” the Future Scenario Planning

MIT : Scenario Planning

MIT : In Time of Incertainty
1. Strategic importance: Organizations must view the supply chain as strategically important to their business success. 2.Multiple roles: Versatility will become a central tenet of the future supplychain as expectations will change requiring it to play multiple roles. 3. Accountability: The unbundling of the supply chain function will continue unabated (irrespective of who owns and operates various sub-tasks). 4. Transparency: The mandate today is to operate with minimum harm to the environment, to reduce energy consumption and pollutant generation, and to recycle all discarded products andpackaging.

5. End-to-end visibility: Recent turbulence in the economy has made it almost impossible to predict the operating environment even in the short term. 6. Social responsibility: Products continue to be recalled by the millions, tainting the name of the firms involved and the countries of origin alike. 7. Risk informed: The distributed nature of the futuresupply chain operating in a complex and dynamic environment requires it to be risk informed. 8. Master volatility: Living in a future of swift step changes will require supply chains to proactively think about uncertainty and react quickly.
