SUPPLY CHAIN COLLABORATIVE PLANNING

SUPPLY CHAIN COLLABORATIVE PLANNING

Disruptions such as COVID-19 have shown that sub-optimal supply chains can bring even the strongest businesses to a standstill. Gaps in planning and forecasting can cause a bullwhip effect from end users to suppliers, throwing carefully crafted processes and revenue streams into disarray. With the ongoing supply and demand disruptions dominating discussions in boardrooms worldwide, it’s clear that better collaborative planning is essential to minimizing uncertainty and getting everyone — inside organizations and throughout supplier networks — on the same page.
