Manufacturing the future: The next era of global growth and innovation | McKinsey Global Institute | Productivity, Competitiveness, & Growth | McKinsey & Company

Manufacturing the future: The next era of global growth and innovation | McKinsey Global Institute | Productivity, Competitiveness, & Growth | McKinsey & Company | Supply Chain Best Practices | Scoop.it
Manufacturing the future: The next era of global growth and innovation, a major report from the McKinsey Global Institute, presents a clear view of how manufacturing contributes to the global economy today and how it will probably evolve over the coming decade. Our findings include the following points:

- Manufacturing’s role is changing. The way it contributes to the economy shifts as nations mature: in today’s advanced economies, manufacturing promotes innovation, productivity, and trade more than growth and employment. In these countries, manufacturing also has begun to consume more services and to rely more heavily on them to operate.

- Manufacturing is not monolithic. It is a diverse sector with five distinct groups of industries, each with specific drivers of success.

- Manufacturing is entering a dynamic new phase. As a new global consuming class emerges in developing nations, and innovations spark additional demand, global manufacturers will have substantial new opportunities—but in a much more uncertain environment.

Why the success of Facebook will change the Supply Chain | Inventory Management and Demand Planning

Why the success of Facebook will change the Supply Chain | Inventory Management and Demand Planning | Supply Chain Best Practices | Scoop.it

The Collaborative Supply Chain

 

While this aspect is mostly connected to the B2C-market, the philosophy of sharing will sooner or later diffuse into the supply chain and its processes.

 

For example, sharing information between logistics companies is currently very constrained. Although logistics professionals strive for more transparency along their supply chain to achieve optimal processes, there are strict regulations when it comes to providing information to other supply chain participants (e.g. suppliers, retailers).

 

This mentality prohibits a holistic optimization of supply chain processes. Sure, there is always the matter of trust. But in the long run, an encompassing, collaborative supply chain will be for the benefit of all participants as choosing trustworthy logistic partners should be an imperative anyway.

 

At some point in the future, this approach to sharing will be the key to competitiveness as integrated planning will become more important.

Supply Chain and Logistics Predictions for 2013 - Logistics Viewpoints

Supply Chain and Logistics Predictions for 2013 - Logistics Viewpoints | Supply Chain Best Practices | Scoop.it

The biggest challenge with making supply chain and logistics predictions is keeping the list short because there is so much going on in this field. Nonetheless, here’s my abridged list:

1. Big Data, Social Media, Cloud Computing, and Mobile Technologies will continue to dominate the headlines.

2. User Interfaces for Supply Chain Apps Will Get a Social Makeover.

3. “Siri” Comes to Enterprise Apps.

4. The Robots Keep Coming.

5. Continued Focus by Retailers and Service Providers on Innovating the Final Mile.

6. Further Blurring of the Lines Between 3PLs, Tech Providers, and Consultants.

7. Increased Adoption of Alternative Fuel Vehicles.

8. More Programs and Partnerships to Address the Talent Shortage Problem.

Rise of the warehouse robots

Rise of the warehouse robots | Supply Chain Best Practices | Scoop.it

At the heart of all e-commerce operations lies the warehouse, and the process of picking products to fill customer orders.

"The most important person in the whole chain is the customer," says Mr Sebba.

"If we don't focus on the customer, then we're lost. So what does the customer want? The customer wants an absolutely impeccable service and she or he wants the product really as soon as she or he can possibly get it."

When your company is selling to the world from distribution centres based in London and New York (and soon Hong Kong) - and you don't have the benefit of a non-union 24/7 elf workforce - what's the answer?

 

For Net-A-Porter it was automating the process with vast banks of robot pickers.

Guest Feature: What Else Can My Suppliers Do? - Article from Supply Chain Management Review | Supply Chain Best Practices | Scoop.it

In an economy still struggling to build consistent and predictable growth, there is far more uncertainty impacting all stakeholders within the supply chain. Just as your company is likely facing pressure to reduce Operating Expenses (“OpEx”), your suppliers are living in the same ecosystem with similar challenges putting pressure on their profits.


When supply chain is asked to do their part in reducing the company’s overall costs, the options are to be Reactionary or Strategic.

The real value of social media for business lies in their ability to tie together disparate aspects of the supply chain, which is every global company's number-one challenge. They can help to fill in the information gaps that keep manufacturers, distributors and retailers from asserting full control over the flow of product and data. And, if utilized properly, they can do it on a real-time basis.

Next-generation supply chains: Efficient, fast and tailored | Supply Chain Best Practices | Scoop.it

PWC Global supply chain survey  2013 shows how supply chain leaders are moving ahead of the pack. Read the report and see how PwC can help you compete more effectively.

 

45% of the participants acknowledge that supply chain is seen as a strategic asset in their company [% of participants] Speed and adaptability drive success in a volatile world

Erratic macroeconomic cycles along with disruptions caused by natural disasters have made supply chain management both more difficult and important to business success. To adapt to this dynamic environment, executives are actively managing their supply chains utilising strategic and operational levers at their disposal to transform vulnerabilities into competitive advantage.

 

This share the insights of more than 500 supply chain experts in Europe, North America and Asia, from companies of all sizes and across a wide range of industries.

 

The Leaders, as we’ve called them, have consistently outperformed their peers, while the Laggards have consistently underperformed — both financially and operationally. The Leaders in our survey point to the future. They have supply chains that are efficient, fast and tailored — a model that lets companies serve their customers reliably in turbulent market conditions and that differentiates between the needs of different sets of customers.
