Supply Chain Graphic of the Week: What are the Top Rated Emerging Supply Chain Technologies?


With MODEX Show from MHI Next Week in Atlanta, a Look at New Survey Results


March 5, 2020


Since the major MODEX trade show from MHI (formerly the Material Handling Industry of America) is next week in Atlanta, we thought we would have as our Supply Chain Graphic of the Week one of the charts from MHI's new supply chain report with partner Deloitte.

The report is much focused on new/emerging technologies, and asked survey respondents to rate a series of such technologies on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 least important and 5 most important.

The results are shown in the chart below:


Source: MHI


As can be seen, overall "digitization" of business/supply chain came in first in terms of the percentage of respondents who gave that technology either a 4 or 5 rating (a strong 74%).
However, we'll note that a there is not a ton of clarity as to what digitization really means, so the results should be taken with a pinch of salt.

In a virtual tie for the top spot was advanced analytics, which also had 74% give it a score of 4 or 5.

To know one's surprise, chat boots and digital twins came in at the bottom of the list.

SCDigest will do a full review of the MHI report soon.
