2018 Agenda Day 2

Day 2 – Tuesday 5 June 2018

07:00-08:00 Breakfast Briefing

Topic: Designing the Supply Chain of the Future

Description: Join LLamasoft to discuss what supply chain designers in Europe will be looking at in the coming years, given the changing worldwide economic and political scene, how should you gear up to answer the key questions facing your business. Exchange insights on the effects of Economic Nationalism. Single market and Customs Union. What will the trade and the movement of people and goods look in Europe in two or three years’ time? Utilise this opportunity to share ideas and explore possible outcomes in a relaxed environment.

In this session we will discuss the following:

  • The implications of Brexit and US President Trump’s intentions to renegotiate NAFTA will lead to new tariffs and standards, creating new challenges for supply chain leaders
  • The events in the UK and at the US are just two of forms of “economic nationalism” that should give every business with cross-border interests many reasons to reconsider its supply chain operations, what factors should you be thinking about to be ready face this period of uncertainty and change

Don Brenchley, Director Industry Strategy EMEA, LLamasoft

08:00-08:50 Registration & Refreshements

08:50-09:00 Chair’s Opening Remarks

09:00- 10:00 Keynote Case study and Panel Discussion: Adapt or Die – Successfully managing a supply chain in the new normal

Today’s detailed planning and scheduling systems are rooted in assumptions and practices from 40 years ago. "Best practices" are no longer best – they are simply antiquated and in many cases inappropriate. 
Optimising these inappropriate rules through today’s more powerful ERP products, Internet of things or Industry 4.0  is fraught with risk. Sustaining competitiveness in the face of rising complexity and volatility in supply chains requires a fundamentally different approach – a company has a choice – adapt or die.

  • This presentation will describe the simple steps of the required shift from convention to the emerging principles to become a Demand Driven Adaptive Enterprise
