How to Optimize Supply Chain Planning and Execution

New trends and technologies are having an impact on supply chains across all industries. To meet the higher expectations, companies are under pressure to reduce planning cycles and find new ways to eliminate supply chain complexity. This calls for comprehensive and flexible supply chain planning to ensure faster responses.

Companies require effective warehouse management, transportation management, and logistics execution systems. At the same time, they need to manage an extended supply chain where all planning and supply chain execution processes are seamlessly connected. This necessitates the sharing of live information throughout the supply network. Real-time IT facilitates this collaboration, helping enterprises prepare for any eventuality.

NTT DATA Business Solutions has over 30 years’ experience in SAP implementations and an in-depth knowledge of cross-industry business processes and IoT scenarios.

Are You Facing Business Challenges in Supply Chain Management?

New business processes

Modern trends such as omnichannel commerce are forcing businesses to rethink their supply chain planning and warehouse management.

Higher customer expectations

Customers in the digital age are more empowered and informed than ever. Companies now have to meet rising expectations.

Greater focus on efficiency

Speed is key in the digital age. The on-demand economy necessitates faster processes, which modern technology facilitates.

Increased supply chain complexity

To overcome supply chain complexity and unpredictability, companies need to share real-time information throughout the supply network.

A growing need for flexibility and scalability

Just like manufacturing processes, transportation management needs to be flexible and scalable to adapt to periods of high and low demand.

Shorter planning cycles

Businesses are under pressure to accelerate planning cycles. Real-time IT can help companies plan effectively and remain competitive.

Modern Tech for Increased Supply Chain Efficiency

In addition to posing several challenges for supply chain management, the digital age presents a number of opportunities. For example, millennial employees are demanding access to intuitive user interfaces – such as those of smartphones and tablets – in the workplace. Embracing these modern devices encourages a more flexible, mobile workforce. It also helps employees learn new processes more quickly, potentially reducing the amount of time and money companies must dedicate to training.

Meanwhile, other technology such as automated conveyor systems and logistics tools can raise productivity and quality standards in warehousing. And innovations like robotics and augmented reality can assist in manufacturing operations, increasing overall supply chain efficiency.
