Focus on Supply Chain Integration

Supply chain integration involves aligning and connecting all elements of the supply chain, from raw material suppliers to end consumers. By utilising the latest data and integration technologies, businesses can improve and automate processes, share information seamlessly, and optimise resource usage to enhance efficiency and reduce costs.

Supply chain integration encompasses improving individual processes, creating smart factories, and establishing end-to-end connected supply chains with technologies like AI and the Internet of Things (IoT). Interconnecting machines, sensors, and devices enables a more cohesive and responsive manufacturing ecosystem. Integrating manufacturing infrastructure enables production-enhancing practices such as predictive maintenance, reduced downtime, and minimized supply chain disruptions. It can also simplify complex logistical tasks, from inventory management to order fulfilment.

In the supply chain, the focus is on connecting data across applications and business partners, integrating demand and supply planning, order management, inventory management, warehousing, distribution channels, and logistics partners (3PL). With the potential to make data available in (near) real-time and utilise advanced predictive and prescriptive analytics supported by AI, businesses can move closer to digital twins and decision-support systems that enable dynamic responses to changes and issues.
