Roadmap to the Digital Supply Chain
Total visibility is the next horizon of digital supply chain, but it will not happen in a vacuum. The digital revolution has renegade initiatives in robotics, internet of things, data analytics, artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing springing up. While many make promises to provide total breakthrough visibility, they can also risk creating confusion and waste.
How do you manage the transition between dismissing the digital wave as “hype” or naively sponsoring digital initiatives to gain total end-to-end visibility?
At Live Europe, you’ll roadmap the journey to a digital future of total visibility on the end-to-end value chain, comprising three areas of supply chain design:
Visibility to demand
A roadmap to total visibility is all about the depth of demand insight with emerging digital technologies.
Sensing demand has long meant getting and analyzing point-of-sale data, channel sales and internal forecasts. Increasingly, however, it also means digesting data from IoT-connected equipment, consumer-level clickstreams and even unstructured social media threads. The question is not whether such demand data is valuable but how to layer it on top of existing forecasting systems.
Visibility to supply
“Sensing” supply is a new notion. Digital makes this not only possible, but urgent to build total visibility upstream.
Lead time, capacity and cost are traditionally seen in sourcing and production systems which assume supply stability. Volatility of supply, however, is the new normal with problems way upstream wreaking havoc on availability and cost every day. Risk monitoring, scenario analytics and unit-level tracking promise granular visibility on what is possible from a supply perspective. The roadmap here comprehends uses of cloud, big data and IoT to build total visibility upstream.
Visibility to profit
Where and when will new tools like artificial intelligence and simulation analytics fit into the existing process.
Sales and operations planning is the current de facto standard for a business’s ability to match demand and supply profitably. Most depend on a mix of separate planning tools blended with people and process to maintain a rhythm for decision making and commitments. As digital revolutionises visibility to both demand and supply, however, the decide-and-commit role of S&OP must up its game. Roadmapping this transformation means choosing where and when new tools like artificial intelligence, control tower dashboards and simulation analytics fit into the existing process.
Live Europe is for SVPs, VPs and Directors in the following cross-industry functions:
Supply Chain | Manufacturing and Production | Operations | Procurement | Risk Management Research & Development | IT and Technology
This year’s agenda deep dives into topics including:

- Leverage artificial intelligence to support planning
- Use IoT for smarter manufacturing
- Get visibility over outcomes
Unique, Forum format
Live Europe is a strictly closed-door, cross-industry forum. There’s no press, vendor exhibition or media allowed, so your conversations with fellow industry leaders will remain confidential and you’ll experience an environment without vendor solicitation.
Keynote sessions and panel discussions
Senior leaders share practical insights into their supply chain operations and you can question them directly to get to the heart of all the key issues.
Small, private roundtable discussions focusing on the critical issues affecting the future of the profession. As all dialogue remains strictly confidential, you can speak openly and freely without any risk of later citation.
1-2-1 peer connections
You can pre-book private face-to-face meetings with executive peers attending the forum using a private online portal running up to and during the forum. Gain real practical insights into what other companies and industries are doing to take back to your boardroom.
A host of informal and relaxed networking opportunities over the course of the forum provide plenty of opportunity to enjoy time out from the intense business discussions and reflect with peers on the key themes of the day.
