Supply Chain Visibility
Bring the Visibility of your Supply Chain to the next level
Implement the vision of the digital twin of your logistics.
Modern supply chains are global, networked and have a high degree of outsourcing. For a situation-related organization and control of these complex networks, an up-to-date and holistic picture of the network status is required.
A lack of visibility in their own network can lead to a loss of control for companies, especially in the event of incidents. Keeping an eye on the entire supply chain in global supply chains is a major challenge and also requires rethinking the supply chain approach from global supply chains to global supply networks, i.e. strengthening collaborative workflows in real time.
Central to visibility in supply chains is the knowledge of relevant data from a comprehensive data universe as well as the associated data sources in often very heterogeneous system landscapes. Many companies rely on multiple in-house systems deployed in parallel, which can limit visibility by preventing media discontinuities from providing a transparent and real-time representation of information and financial flows. Moving supply chain workflows from all partners to a collaborative network platform can overcome system silos and enable cross-stakeholder (internal and external) data interaction for increased performance and visibility.
Every day, an enormous number of decisions have to be made in logistics based on numerous internal and external factors. An essential prerequisite for fast and targeted decisions is end-to-end visibility of the supply chain. Increasingly, technologies such as AI are being used to (partially) automate processes and thereby realize efficiency gains and more robust processes with greater responsiveness. Automation technologies are also accompanied by changing tasks and roles in companies, which requires the identification of relevant (future) competencies and a sustainable development of competencies.
