I've been a supply chain practitioner for over 25 years now and have never seen the level of disruption that we are currently experiencing. We have spent decades trying to automate supply chain decision-making (with some success) and see the promise of emerging tools such as machine learning. But in today's environment of simultaneous supply- and demand-shocks the role of the Planner has never been more important. The People part of People-Process-Technology is back in the forefront as planning cycles compress to days, if not hours. Perhaps we can help each other out by sharing some stories about how we are adapting to this new environment?
How has the current disruption impacted your day-to-day job?
What changes have you made to your planning processes? What's working?
