Market and demand volatility drives the need for supply chain visibility
These are the results of Capgemini Consulting’s annual international supply chain survey. The study assesses the views of supply chain executives around the world on their key priorities. Although the general economic outlook at the start of 2011 seems positive, a significant number of the respondents to this year’s supply chain survey, indicate they are uncertain about market demand in 2011. This year’s survey reveals that operating a reliable supply chain in a volatile environment, while simultaneously dealing with rising material costs, will be the primary challenge for supply chain managers in 2011.
