Drive for Supply Chain Digitalisation
The trend of global sourcing and supply chain globalisation, the rise of e-commerce as well as the increasing consumer expectations on good price and fast delivery, have induced disruptions to business which necessitates the ability to respond in real time. On top of that, B2B companies now expect the same level of visibility and delivery updates that consumers get for ordering something. This can only be done if information could be shared across operations, the entire supply chain is visible, and updates are current. Such shift drives the need not only for supply chain digitisation (the process of moving physical documents such as ledgers, purchase orders and records onto computer files), but supply chain digitalisation (integrating physical processes with digital data to create a fully optimized supply chain), no matter whether the business is large multinational company or small and medium enterprise.
SCM 4.0 is today’s key to success
It is well understood that supply chain management is an integral part of most businesses and is essential to customer satisfaction (in terms of right product at right time in correct quantity, good quality and proper service) and company success (in terms of competitive edge on cost control, profit gain, and sustainability). At the era of industry 4.0, companies could leverage the application of IT infrastructure and emerging technologies including IoT, robotics, analytics of big data in supply chain management to achieve supply chain digitalization.
