As companies grow and expand globally, supply chain visibility becomes increasingly critical to revenue generation and meeting customers’ expectations. Lalit Wadhwa, senior vice president, global supply chain operations at Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), will present a case study on the topic at the next Supply Chain and Transportation one2one Summit, laying out specific steps that can be taken in order to mitigate or minimize the impact of supply network issues.
“Improved Response Management through Supply Chain Visibility – An Avnet case study” will offer specific methods to gain real-time visibility in the demand chain, allowing companies to rapidly address possible risks. Speaking from an Avnet customer perspective, Wadhwa will share the processes, best practices, tools and systems that can also be used in other industries.
“Today’s supply chains have become very extended, reaching various countries and continents. That creates opportunities, but also causes visibility problems we never had 20 years ago,” said Wadhwa. “Customers in the high-tech industry can leverage Avnet’s infrastructure and capabilities in the supply chain visibility arena to lower inventory and operating costs, create new revenue opportunities and increase customer satisfaction.”
