MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Smart Connected Supply Chain-How to Best Leverage Supply Chain Professionals

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EST)


Come share your experiences, stories, questions, and what you have learned in a safe, non-commercial environment. We seek to understand the state-of-the market, understand what companies have done that has or has not worked, documenting questions that MESA and the community can help answer. Overall, the goal is to accelerate each participant’s learning and progress toward Smart Manufacturing. 

Topic: How to Best Leverage Supply Chain Professionals

Increasingly, robotic process automation, artificial intelligence, and digital twins are available for supply chain use. What will it take for the people to leverage these effectively?

  • How can skilled supply chain professionals get comfortable and contribute their expertise?
  • Are there technologies that can make less experienced people more valuable on the team or learn faster?
  • When is the challenge of modeling a supply chain for automation or building digital twins worth the effort?
  • What technologies have you seen succeed - and fail - in the supply chain environment? And what made the difference in their level of benefit?
