A couple of weeks ago, Flextronics CIO, Dave Smoley, joined Dr. Hau Lee, Thoma Professor of Operations Information and Technology at Stanford Graduate School of Business, along with our very own John Sicard, EVP Marketing, Development and Service Operations for a webcast presentation. That webcast is now available on-demand. Here is a little more about the session... Translating business drivers into technology requirements: How to support today’s S&OP and SCM landscape As a leading EMS provider, Flextronics is no stranger to supply chain pressures. Short product life cycles, demand volatility, supply shortages – all of which must be managed within a supply chain that crosses organizations, geography and time zones. As a result, there is a tremendous need for supply chain agility. One of the most fruitful ways to improve agility is to reduce decision latency throughout the multiple layers of the supply chain and throughout the various stages of the S&OP process. Dave Smoley discusses the technology capabilities that are required to be a partner in their customers’ planning processes and pro-active in responding to their changing needs, thus avoiding the organizational chaos and business risks of being on the tail-end of a bullwhip.
