The importance of master data in successful planning 

complexity, data science, digitalization

With data becoming the key to any organization's progress, the necessity for improving its quality and consistency, too, has turned imperative. This necessity led to the genesis of Master Data, which encapsulates the core of business information. It includes structural and hierarchical references needed for a specific enterprise and is easily shareable. In the absence of Master Data, one cannot do any business in present times. If excelled at Master Data effectively, companies can see a direct impact on boosted sales, reduced risk management, and improved profitability.

Supercharged decision-making for supply chain executives

transparency, analytics, data science

Given the break-neck pace at which the markets function, supply chain executives must think on their feet to stay ahead of the competition. Each day brings possibilities and factors, turning the decision-making job into an unenviable task. Making the correct decision requires an eclectic mix of experience and knowledge, the foundation of sound judgment. Errors in judgment come with both far-reaching and immediate consequences. That's why relying on gut instinct or experience alone or reviewing very few KPIs can sometimes spell severe impact. Now, consider technology helping you simulate the market by creating a digital twin using different distribution models. You can use this simulation to compare production to inventory statistics and make educated trade-off decisions. Supply chain optimization is a must to meet the new needs and supply chain issues. Supply chain managers must stay ahead of the curve to anticipate developments. Supply chain optimization aims to ensure that a production and distribution supply chain runs as efficiently as possible. This comprises effective inventory placement all along the supply chain and decreases operating costs, such as production, transportation, and administrative expenses. Supply Chain optimization frequently involves using mathematical modeling approaches in conjunction with computer software.

The self-driving supply chain: inevitable? 

The ultimate goal of any business is to deliver its product and service to the customer on time and in the right quantity. Supply chain management plays a significant role in achieving this goal. The supply chain of any business is a complex and dynamic network of integrated processes, people, and technology to fulfill customer demand. There are different players within the supply chain of any products: suppliers, wholesalers, manufacturers, 3PL service providers, etc. Successful supply chain management contains the efficient management of each part in which the right strategic, tactical, and operational decisions are taken and implemented at the right time.

Stop clashing over KPI target setting and achieve better results!

analytics, execution management

Is your organization aiming for the moon but not even capable of setting realistic goals? Goal-setting can be the bane or the boon of your organization. Whether you can set realistic goals and targets for your business can make all the difference between success and failure.

 

After all, it is not just about the demoralization that employees and stakeholders face when the targets are not attained. It also means that you have wasted a lot of resources, time, and effort in chasing a goal that could not have been accomplished in the first place, resulting in the company losing out on achievable results that it could have realized.

Building Up Digital Twins for improving Supply Chains

performance gap, innovation, analytics, digitalization, execution management

The concept of digital twins has been around for a long time in terms of modeling and simulation. However, the two are vastly different. The digital twin is a living-learning model, as described by Colin Parris, CTO of GE Digital. Thus, it is continuously running and updating itself based on data received from the subject of the twin.
