FMCG and retail supply chains are exposed to a number of challenges and opportunities as outlined here. Industry engagements have identified six supply chain data themes and challenges in the FMCG and retail industry.
It is time FMCG as a sector start mining data and make better use of it to be proactive rather than being reactive which is possibly the only way to sustain now and excel further.
These internal, external and macro risks strongly demands a need for an intelligent Supply Chain network with 360 degree view.
This would help close knit the supply chain nodes to mitigate risk and keep operations seamless to meet customer needs.
You enterprise have done all what it takes but scenarios may differ and supply chain is here only to get more and more complex.
A smart SCM “nerve center” is possibly where industries should now focus to tap the potential of data.
Covid has made lot of these Supply Chain anamalies obvious with point of no return. It’s important to hear the experts who think there is a way forward:
Simon Geale – VP Procurement at Proxima says:
“We’re about to see an age of collaboration between all these entities in the supply chain. It’s not necessarily that the model is wrong, but the management of the model has been shown up. Retailers need transparency and traceability in the supply chain. It’s going to take a combination of the best brains working at the fastest speed with the best tools to get that visibility. A retailer won’t be able to do it all by themselves.”
Each node in the new collaborative retail supply chain Geale envisions need to keep the final goal in mind: satisfying customer demand.
Operational Risk (OR) has been one of the major risk in Finance which has costed the sector $210 billion since 2011.
The key to effective operational risk management is training people to anticipate what could go wrong especially when a business unit is about to do something new.
