Long Beach, CA, United States, 2010/08/12 - Webinar, based on recent analyst firm research, offers best practices to “realign your supply chain compass” to create a more holistic view of the product supply network. Euronext: #13065; DSY.PA
Who: Rick Gallisa, Industry Director, Life Sciences and Consumer Goods at Apriso will join featured analyst Simon Jacobson, Research Director of AMR (acquired by Gartner, Inc.), for a complimentary webinar. They will present advantages that manufacturers can realize from establishing business processes that span horizontally across their operations (think "East – West") instead of vertically, within functional silos (think "North – South") to achieve a more holistic view of their product supply network.
Mr. Jacobson will provide a framework on how companies can embrace an enterprise approach to global manufacturing operations, addressing top trends identified by global manufacturers, based on AMR/Gartner’s latest manufacturing research findings. Mr. Gallisa will present real-world examples on how manufacturers are executing upon this vision, aligning their business processes “East – West” for improved flexibility and simplified operations management.
What: Attend this webinar to better understand these research findings, as well as case studies from best-in-class global manufacturers who are embracing an enterprise approach to global manufacturing operations to address today’s top manufacturing objectives:
• Improve flexibility – Increased visibility, synchronization and control allows you to respond faster and more cost effectively to changing market conditions;
• Accelerate innovation and continuous improvement while removing complexity – By integrating design, planning and your manufacturing systems, you can go to market with faster new product introductions and stronger brand integrity;
• Achieve real-time visibility – Gain visibility into manufacturing costs, WIP, inventory and ERP integration, as well as aggregated data for improved performance correlations;
• Manage the continued centralization of manufacturing IT systems – Embrace the common goal of sharing and standardizing global processes for increased asset utilization.
