At Smarter Supply Chains – Atlanta Regional Conference, David Simchi-Levi talked about Combating Volatility through Flexibility. I talked about this in greater detail here.
One point that David raised at the outset was the increased level of volatility surrounding the supply chain. His point was that companies need to be careful in thinking about the "best practices" that they apply to managing their supply chains. In such a dynamic environment, the best practices that applied before the recession - or before oil prices spiked, or before they crashed again - are not necessarily applicable today. It's a call to action for all supply chain executives to step back and reassess their processes to see if they are still "best in class," or whether there might be benefit to adjusting to the "New Normal."
