Did you see Fred Herman’s recent supply chain article on the Food Manufacturing website? Don’t worry if you missed it, you can catch up and read Fred’s thought-provoking commentary here.

During his article, Fred identifies a shared root cause for many of the supply chain inefficiencies and issues currently being faced and managed by supply chain professionals across the globe. Whilst they all vary in size and magnitude, most can be traced back to a lack of strategic alignment between operations and outcomes. As Fred explains in the article:

“You can’t control a supply chain when you don’t understand what’s really going on and why. If you continue to operate with this reactive 'silo' process mentality, then it will become increasingly difficult to understand the root cause of operational issues. The supply chain will constantly be on the back foot, with obvious knock-on implications for customer satisfaction, supply reliability, stock levels and delivery optimization.”

Fred goes on to explain that analytics and can play a pivotal role in helping close this strategy and execution gap; particularly when armed with prescriptive and operational capability. The article closes by linking to a supply chain quiz that succinctly details and shows how operational control can greatly improve supply chain efficiency. Why not take the quiz when you next have a spare five minutes?
