Making Industry 4.0 Meaningful: Overcoming Reactivity, Supercharging Proactivity
On 18-20 November 2019, the US edition of our NG Supply Chain Summit will bring together senior decision-makers and business leaders from across North America at the fantastic The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, Florida, to share their views on how to tackle the biggest challenges in supply chain management today.
Industry 4.0, the move to “place sensors in everything, create networks everywhere, automate anything, and analyze everything to significantly improve performance and customer satisfaction”, has become disconnected from the realities of real supply chain organisations. With no silver bullet to business transformation, there is a need for a common mission statement across departments to break free of silo-thinking and continuously improve. At the Next Generation Supply Chain Leadership Summit, learn to balance agility, alignment and adeptness in tackling the key challenges of the day. Including: automating last mile costs, piloting ERP solutions with rapidity, and leveraging artificial intelligence to optimize intermodal networking.
From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside best-in-class organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations, to one-to-one meetings with industry peers offering practical advice tailored to your specific needs, the summit will provide you with everything you need to implement your key projects more effectively.
GDS asked for a narrative – they really wanted to understand what I’m working on. They took that information and put together a couple of days that were more valuable for me.
Every GDS Summit has one stated aim: to help attending executives implement their key projects more effectively. We do this by developing an in-depth understanding of those executives' project needs, the business outcomes they want to achieve, and the challenges they face in terms of hitting those goals.
