Supply chain network design is very hot right now, as many companies at long last are developing this discipline as continuous core competence.
But SCDigest Dan Gilmore editor has some topics he would like to better understand relative to network design, and there is no one better to turn to than Toby Brzoznowski, executive vide president at network design software firm LLamasoft. He recently sat down with Gilmore as part of our weekly Supply Chain Video News broadcast with CSCMP, which we except here.
What are those questions?
1. What learnings are developing from network design projects for omnichannel fulfillment in retail?
2. Are there real network design opportunities for mid-market companies?
3. So much of the effort to design a network in the future is based on demand forecasts, and almost by definition those forecasts will be wrong. How can companies best mitigate against this forecast risk?
Watch Gilmore and Brzoznowski tackle those three questions in the interesting video below.
