THEMED LUNCH DISCUSSIONS

Roundtable A

SAP LOGISTICS EXECUTION - TRANSPORTATION (LE-TRA) IS ABOUT TO RETIRE. WHAT’S COMING NEXT?

The future is Transportation Management (TM) embedded in S/4HANA. Get some hands-on experience from SAP industry experts and discuss the following questions:

What are the market Trends for SAP Digital Supply Chain Innovation? What are the key benefits of TM in S/4HANA compared to LE-TRA? What is the best practice approach and average implementation time for transition?

NOVIGO

Roundtable D
GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN

WHAT IS A GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN? RECORDING CO2 EMISSIONS? TOTAL CARBON FOOTPRINT? PLASTIC FREE SUPPLY CHAINS?

It seems we find it difficult to define, within our own organisations, exactly what a Green Supply Chain entails and why it has become a business priority. How, then, can we talk to one another, let alone our customers and consumers, who are more and more concerned with the environmental impacts of their purchases?

This DSV session aims to tease out some of the broader principles of a ‘green supply chain’ and to talk about the challenges each of us are facing today in terms of consumer and governmental pressure.

Roundtable B
MAKING INFORMED DECISIONS FASTER WITH SUPPLY CHAIN ANALYTICS

This discussion will explore the importance of building robust supply chain analytics capabilities to quickly drive more informed business decisions by tapping into both structured and unstructured data sources and drawing conclusions about your demand, inventory, production and distribution operations.  All participants will receive a white paper, “Three Checklists to Build a Successful Supply Chain Analytics Foundation.”

LOGILITY

Roundtable E
LEADING THROUGH DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Strong Supply Chain Leadership – a clear voice, far reaching influence and healthy challenge - is needed more than ever as businesses grapple with understanding, exploiting and managing escalating, disruptive influences. Skills honed in previous Supply Chain roles aren’t necessarily the ones needed now. History is unlikely to be a guide to the future. So how do I build a pioneering culture where which Supply Chain can flourish in an uncertain, changing landscape?

I need to embrace a transformation in myself and in my mindset and to model the behaviours I need others to adopt within the Supply Chain function. It isn’t about what I do. It is about the relationships I build. And how I, and my team act.

Delegates will be provided with a take-away prompt of how different leader profile types may fare - what will be a positive in their transformation journey and what will be a challenge.

Roundtable F

TRANSFORMING SUPPLY CHAINS THROUGH REAL-TIME APPLICATIONS

IoT, autonomous, and connected systems are beginning to emerge as a focal point for supply chain digital transformation efforts. Being able to convert supply chain operations into true, ‘real-time’ systems that enable companies to sense the state of the system, analyze it, and then act appropriately in real time, embodying the rapidly-approaching future. Join with your colleagues as VANTIQ CMO, Blaine Mathieu moderates a discussion of the current state of your supply chain operations and how you are working to transform them into effective, real-time systems.

INNOVATION TOOLKITS

DRIVing enhanced PERFORMANCE through supply chain collaboration

Supply Chain Collaboration is much talked about, but seldom practiced. People who regard themselves as partners struggle to share information and strategy, with one another, to enable a deeper collaboration that depends upon knowledge of each other’s business and the ability to communicate honestly with one another – and this is before we begin to talk about the benefits of vertical and horizontal collaboration.

Today’s world is more and more about partnerships. We cannot all be expert in many fields and we rely upon expertise from others to augment and develop our business.

This DSV session will explore the different forms and levels of collaboration and will attempt, with participants assistance and input, to put together a formula for successful collaboration.

LEVERAGING THE POWER OF THE AUTONOMOUS SUPPLY CHAIN

In this session Stephan takes the audience on a Digital Transformation journey in the Supply Chain Planning Environment. The journey starts with the creation of a Digital Twin of a real life Supply Chain interface with traditional data sources (ERP, CRM) and new external data sources such IoT devices, market information (product ratings, local events, competitor pricing, weather, macroeconomic data, etc.) Then the power of the Autonomous Supply Chain is unleashed by applying smart AI and Machine Learning to transform data into information and information into decision-making to create an autonomous supply chain that delivers much greater results than the traditional human centric Supply Chain.
