Challenges in connected supply chains
Globally networked supply chains are increasing. Their added value often shows not only regionally on site. The problem: Many supply chains of companies have grown historically. As a result, many supply chains are poorly networked. Efficiency and effectiveness are missing.
Delivery bottlenecks as a challenge in mechanical engineering
The more complex a plant is, such as a production line, the higher the risk in the supply chain. What should a mechanical engineering company do if the crucial parts for commissioning the system are missing? At the same time, customers want quick set-up or (very problematic in the event of supply bottlenecks) quick conversion. Every day that the systems are not running costs money.
Solutions in networked supply chains
In addition to logistical networking, digital networking within the global supply chain is becoming more and more important. The more complex the processes become, the more helpful is a digitized control of all information and material flows. From the raw material manufacturer to the end customer in the B2B area, the common occurrence of high inventories and delivery bottlenecks can be eliminated through greater transparency. This transparency enables targeted control of the supply chain and all potential for optimization.
