Establishing an Internal CoE Expands the Benefit of Supply Chain Modeling Enterprise-Wide

Some of the best-run supply chains in the world are making supply chain design a core business function, and using this competency as a competitive weapon for their business. They are establishing internal supply chain design centers of excellence which utilize modeling technology to continuously optimize the end-to-end supply chain and stay ahead of other companies in their market.

Not every company has a supply chain design center of excellence established with mission statements, reporting structures and budgets. Building this supply chain design center of excellence within a business often follows a progression that begins with a small group finding tactical quick wins and leveraging those results to justify the business function.
