Complex – that’s one way to describe today’s evolving supply chain. What was once a simple Buy-Move-Sell approach has now been complicated by strategic planning, sourcing, continuous improvement and other avenues, not to mention the core moves within a company’s supply chain. This presentation will focus on the components and interdependencies within the end to end supply chain, along with a view of how the engineering profession plays a key role in determining future opportunities within it.
