DMDII-15-12 Technologies Enabling Supply Chain Visibility

February 7, 2017

This topic considers the visibility of parts, processes, and capabilities for a variety of supply network functions . Supply chain optimization is difficult given today’s globally distributed businesses and marketplace, where businesses experience increased complexity in market demand, transportation, and distributed manufacturing. Managing this complexity requires real-time, dynamic insight into the status of current operations, including asset locations, manufacturing schedules, and emerging capacity constraints anywhere in the enterprise. Furthermore, rapid reaction to emerging complexities in the marketplace requires a broader insight into the capabilities, capacity, and availability of prospective partners and suppliers. The goal of this project, “Technologies Enabling Supply Chain Visibility,” is to demonstrate technologies that can provide real-time, dynamic visibility into the status of key information to facilitate efficient response to rapidly changing conditions.
