Managing Your Supply Chain Like an Astronaut
Cloud-based supply chain platforms can digitize the millions of interaction between the systems, objects, and people engaged in global commerce at any given moment in time. And now, powerful new visualization technologies like virtual reality and augmented reality will enable us to experience our global supply chains as the living, breathing ecosystems that they are. Supply chain managers will feel a sense of awe, very similar to the “overview effect” astronauts experience when they see planet earth from outer space. But awe alone is not enough. Successful companies need to put the right systems in place to combine awe plus action.
