Thursday the 11th of October, Willem Gerbecks and Jan Veerman from EyeOn hosted the webinar ‘E2E Supply Chain Visibility: from shopper to factory’. This was the 3rd event in line, after a seminar in Eindhoven (IGLUU) and a previous held webinar.
In the webinar, a demo was presented regarding an end-to-end Supply Chain, where the positive effects were shown if there is full transparency between all stakeholders involved. By using Tableau any availability issues on all levels (shop, DC, manufacturer) can easily be analyzed, so that actions to adjust Supply Chain parameters or agreements with suppliers (e.g. volume contracts) can be performed in Anaplan, showing an immediate update and effect in Tableau. Also, the introduction of a new product was one of the scenarios that was covered in Anaplan, showing the effect and availability based on the parameters set on all levels in the Supply Chain.
This demo, based on a real-life case we implemented in the Netherlands, showed that technology is an enabler to increase the transparency in the Supply Chain and increase the trust between all organizations involved. Resulting in lower inventory levels across the Supply Chain and increased on shelf availability, creating a win-win situation for all.
