Supply Chain Complexity

The Point of View of Quintiq


Defeat supply chain complexity like a Jedi
by: Sriyani Rao - Social Media Community Specialist, Quintiq

Overwhelmed by the dark forces of supply chain planning?
The best supply chain planners share a common trait with Jedi knights: No matter how tough things get, they never give up.

So how do they overcome a supply chain’s darkest force: complexity?

Here’s what they don’t do: Assign different parts of their planning challenge to different departments. Why? This rarely works. It’s difficult to make decisions in real time when one planner doesn’t know what the planner in another department is doing. It’s a trap. Fall into it, you mustn’t.
To join the ranks of fearless supply chain planners, you need more than a lightsaber and capable sidekick. Start with these 7 actionable tips:

- Make sure you can see what’s happening – all the time
- Get the most out of your resources
- Plan for all possible outcomes
- Master the art of scenario planning
- Upgrade your demand forecasting skills
- Respond swiftly
- Break common planning rules
