Ask a manufacturing manager how they solve problems and you’ll likely get an earful about lean, six sigma, and other data-driven improvement techniques. Ask a supply chain manager and you’ll likely hear a different story: one that involves less analysis and more fire-fighting.

In this recent op ed with Modern Materials Handling, Tive CRO Rob Stevens sheds some light on how access to new sources of data is enabling supply chain managers to adapt tried-and-true manufacturing optimization strategies to supply chain.

Specifically, as companies begin to implement IoT technologies in their supply chains, it has become possible to employ quantitative, process-driven strategies to systematically reduce waste and improve reliability across the supply chain. These data-driven tools are helping companies to gain visibility and take back control  of their supply chains from end to end. Ultimately, these tools are giving managers the data and analysis they need to make smarter, more informed decisions about their supply chains.
