The Future of
Supply Chain Management
November 14th, 2017
us on Tuesday, November 14th, as we welcome
Launchbury, CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP, CDDP, President of Keith
Launchbury & Associates, and Past President of APICS
The problem with many companies today
is that while they have done an impressive job of applying
lean concepts to their own internal processes, they have not
done the same across their entire supply chain processes.
There is no question that the concepts of lean are equally
applicable especially when you consider the amount of waste
of energy, material and time that is prevalent in many
global supply chains today. The challenge is how to apply
the concepts of lean across multiple enterprises, often
running different versions of different ERP systems, and
this challenge of sharing accurate demand information in a
timely fashion is becoming a significant obstacle to
streamlined and effective supply chain management.
During this presentation, Keith will explain the rapidly
changing nature of the retail marketplace, and the
implications for all suppliers to the retail world. He will
explain the way in which suppliers must adapt to this new
business reality, and the principles which they must adopt
to be competitive in this new business environment.
