This IDC white paper discusses the various challenges facing the manufacturing supply chain.
Also highlighted is the importance of networks, collaboration, and supply chain visibility as they pertain to the supply chain's role relative to the external environment and then the evolution that must occur in the internal supply chain environment to meet these external requirements while meeting internal business objectives. The evolution from a “traditional” supply chain to an “extended” supply chain is not something that can happen overnight. At IDC Manufacturing Insights, we would suggest that it's a journey (one that many companies have begun and that others have yet to begin), but it's a necessary journey if the supply chain is going to effectively meet its role in the modern, digitalized business environment.
