Advanced analytics is really playing good role in supply chain performance.
24% of global manufacturers ($500M+) predict advanced analytics will make the greatest impact to their supply chain’s performance this year. 27% of all manufacturers say keeping up with ever-changing customer demands is their biggest supply chain challenge. 11% of all manufacturers predict adopting Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in 2016 will accelerate supply chain operations. These and other insights are from the State of Global Supply Chain Report (free, opt-in, 14 pp., PDF) published this week by GTNexus in partnership with global research firm, YouGov. The study concentrates on discovering which technologies that have and will have the most significant impact on manufacturer’s supply chains, also concentrating on supply chain challenges and goals for improvement. The methodology is based on a random sample of 250 senior manufacturing executive interviews held during December 2015.
