Perspective: A Reflection on Supply Chain Trends from APICS and CSCMP 2015
This IDC Retail Insights Perspective discusses supply chain trends from the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS) annual conferences, which were held in fall 2015. With thousands in attendance, through conversations with end users, vendors, and presenters, several trends in supply chain were very obvious. Some of these are not so new to be at the forefront of everyone's minds, but others were new to the table. This Perspective is a consolidation and review of several of these trends and the implications they bring to the forefront.
