Aberdeen Group Offers Five Steps for Gaining Supply Chain Visibility and Control

A recently released study by Aberdeen Group, "Integrated Demand-Supply Networks: Five Steps to Gaining Visibility and Control," concludes that most companies are struggling with the complexity of their multi-tiered networks of global suppliers, customers, supply chain services providers and other intermediaries.

The findings were based on a survey of 126 companies, including several apparel companies and retailers. The report offers best practices in managing integrated supply chains, including the ability to accurately forecast demand across multiple channels and how to attain overall supply chain agility (such as the ability to re-route in-transit shipments).

Nari Viswanathan, vice president and principal analyst of Aberdeen who co-authored the report, commented: "Supply chain complexity has gradually led companies to lose visibility and control over their network-wide supply chain operations and performance metrics. This study finds that visibility and responsiveness have become the necessary ingredients for success in today's multi-tiered supply-demand networks."

A complimentary copy of this report is made available in part by underwriting from the firms Inovis and QLogitek.
