The autonomous whole is greater than the sum
It’s the pervasive challenge faced by consumer products manufacturers and retailers alike – how to plan and execute as an end-to-end supply chain. From consensus
of sales and demand, to coordination of truckloads and warehouse capacity, organizations are addressing integration gaps through individual initiatives. But those
siloed efforts aren’t enough.
Consumer expectations and market conditions continue to fluctuate, driving more variability into operations that must become even more agile to compete. The supply chain must operate as an autonomous whole rather than a group of loosely connected functions. Why? Because the potential benefits of autonomous operations are far deeper and more significant than incremental improvements.
