MHI and Deloitte Consulting LLP have once again teamed up to better understand the critical shift toward next-generation (NextGen) digital supply chains.
In this fifth annual survey report on supply chain innovation, you can find out more about the critical shift toward next-generation (NextGen) digital supply chains and the real-world impact of 11 key innovations on supply chain operations and strategies:
• Robotics and Automation • Predictive Analytics • Internet of Things • Artificial Intelligence • Driverless Vehicles and Drones • Wearable and Mobile Technology • Inventory and Network Optimization • Sensors and Automatic Identification • Cloud Computing and Storage • 3D Printing • Blockchain •
Digital technologies and innovations are driving massive changes and improvements in supply chain. Meanwhile, digital disruption and continued globalization are sending customer service expectations through the roof and stretching supply chains to the farthest reaches of the planet – putting supply chains under more stress than ever before. Today’s supply chains do much more than just physically move materials and product from place to place. In an increasingly digital world, supply chains are the backbone of an information ecosystem in which a connected and carefully coordinated set of movements and actions must be tracked at every level in order to maximize efficiency and meet customer demands for increased flexibility, visibility, and transparency.
The findings in this report are based on survey responses from more than 1,100 manufacturing and supply chain industry leaders across a wide range of industries. Half of respondents hold executive-level positions such as CEO, Vice President, General Manager, or Department Head. Participating companies range in size from small to large, with 47% reporting annual sales in excess of $100 million, and 10% reporting annual sales of $10 billion or more.
This year’s report features in-depth profiles of the five NextGen innovations having the greatest impact on supply chains. Let’s take a deep dive into it!
