SCM webinar Supply Chain visibility & collaboration with PwC & Anaplan

SCM Webinar

Supply Chain Media, PwC and Anaplan organized the webinar “Supply chain visibility & collaboration” on Thursday July 9. 86 attendees joined the webinar live. Thanks to the highly engaged audience, more than 20 questions were answered in the live Q&A session at the end of the webinar. 

Current economic crises are creating obstacles for supply chains around the globe. Businesses now face the most extreme versions of supply chain challenges that have emerged in recent years:
• The limitations of historical forecasting
• Insufficient end-to-end supply chain visibility
• Mitigating supply chain and operating risks

Many businesses struggle to cope with the supply chain disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and are in firefighting mode to keep their logistic flow running. That, combined with the continuing unpredictability of the outbreak, has added new urgency to the need to increase speed and quality of decision-making.

Traditional ways of planning where internal functions work in silos and data is not (or limited) shared between trading partners may take weeks just to determine the exact impact of for example a factory closing. As a result, the response to these kinds of disruptions has been reactive and uncoordinated, and the impact of the crisis is hitting many full force.

With teams working remotely and global policies shifting frequently, it is more important than ever for supply chain leaders to maintain workflows and keep lines of communication open across the broader ecosystem. Establishing an end-to-end planning framework where all planning processes and data are connected in a single platform is now more important than ever. This allows planners to have instant visibility on on which suppliers, shipments, inventories and customer orders are at risk – which allows them to put themselves first in line to secure constrained inventory and production capacity.

During this webinar PwC and Anaplan showcased a tactical “control tower” solution that was built for a pharmaceutical company – and how the Anaplan solution can provide end-to-end visibility and allow planners to orchestrate and optimize the flow of goods from supplier to local warehouses.
