Four Major Supply Chain Issues



We here at TEC are continually talking to clients about their supply chain needs and how they are using software, technology, and best practices to manage multiple forces and pressures in their supply chains and enhance their processing, manufacturing, and distribution operations. In the course of talking to end users, software and technology vendors, consultants, and other industry parties, we are hearing about a wide range of challenging issues and pressures specific to supply chain functioning.

For the TEC 2013 Supply Chain Buyer’s Guide, we chose to highlight four issues that we see as particularly prominent and having the greatest impact on the supply chain operations of our clients:

    1. The rise of the real-time supply chain

    2. The inexorable rise in supply chain complexity

    3. Risk management

    4. Logistics—everything is moving faster

The quickening pace of business events is bringing to the forefront once again, and perhaps more urgently than before, the need for a “real-time supply chain.” While this idea and concept has been talked about for some 10–15 years, the increasing pace of business—as evidenced by the explosion of information, the proliferating number of mobile devices, and the amazing increase in connectivity and “connectedness” in recent years—is highlighting the drawbacks of linear, sequential supply chain processes that were designed for another era.

Companies today are trying to cope with more complex multi-tiered networks, more products with shorter product life cycles, more compliance and governmental regulations, and often more competition. The solutions to supply chain complexity are often complex themselves. One of the aims of this guide is to help you examine the factors contributing to supply chain complexity and identify ways that you can use current tools and technologies to accelerate the supply chain cycle and thus better manage your business.
