Constantly reacting to disruptions isn't sustainable. But you can set your business on the right course toward supply chain resiliency with the right planning.
In the era of instant ordering and next-day delivery, your customers expect your products to arrive on time (if not early) with no major issues. Supply chain disruptions can make that a challenge – but it’s a challenge you can turn into a competitive advantage. When you proactively plan for how to meet disruptions when they happen, you set your business on the path to success. The right planning gets you the best value – helping your business, your customers, and your bottom line.
See all the connections in your supply chain and understand how they work together – and where they can break down.
Identify where you can consolidate points in your chain, while still having backup plans for disruption.
Understanding the flow of materials helps you know where and when you need to redirect.
Mapping your supply chain can be a driver for efficiency, economics, and managing and improving margins. It can also help you spot liquidity in some unexpected places. Working to understand your critical components, refreshing your supply base analysis, and completing a targeted risk rating of your supply base can help make your supply chain more resilient by stabilizing for future disruptions.
Now is the time to reassess your supply chain operations. With supply chain disruptions moving from sporadic to standard, it’s easy to spend all your time solving the problem at hand – but identifying the root issues can help you save valuable time.
