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
