Building a bridge to operational excellence in a modern process supply chain means more than business process engineering and application integration. Today's digitalization trends bring together detailed histories of events and behaviors that help business stakeholders understand how to achieve more predictable outcomes using planning, scheduling, and product life-cycle models along with real-time operational targets. Deviations in the plan can trigger automatic regeneration of a best-fit recovery plan based on the current operating and business conditions. Understanding every aspect of your business not only allows for better decision making and change management, it can create sustainable competitive advantage allowing the focus on value-add activities. As an overview to the Manufacturing, Supply Chain, and Transportation Track this session will address the latest industry trends and preview the customer talks.
