11:15am Session: Manufacturing Supply Chain Resiliency

Customer demands are accelerating. A global supply chain skills gap looms on the horizon. Socio-economic, geo-political unrest, climate change-related weather disturbances and global health-crises are impacting cost and assurance of supply. Everyone is working towards sensing disruptions earlier and responding in more optimal ways, but no supply chain can predict the big shocks and you can’t hedge network inventory to prepare for the unknown. In this session, industry experts will discuss how corporations create “resiliency” or an efficient, optimized supply chain that can not only absorb the big shocks, but turn those stressors into better competitive position over peers?

Presenters: Bernard Goor, SVP Sales for Supply Chain Management, Infor
Doug Bellin, Business Development Executive, AWS
Christine Barnhart, Director of Go-to-Marketing Strategy and Exectution, Infor
Jake Barr, CEO/Principal, BlueWorld Supply Chain Consulting
