How has supply chain design and planning changed over time to help companies stay competitive and better respond to disruption?

In the past, companies focused on minimizing costs associated with their supply chain. With advances in technology, however, their new focus is on overall value creation, not just cost reduction.

In addition, there has been a shift from long-term supply chain planning using periodical design revisions. Companies are realizing more and more that they must continuously design their supply chain and keep their focus on the short term.

Formerly, many supply chain managers focused on efficiency at a global level, but that is now shifting towards an emphasis on local and regional redundancy to counter the growing level of disruption.

While companies have always focused on optimizing their supply chain for best business results, in recent years this optimization has been further empowered through the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Previously, supply chains were designed with little collaboration with the rest of the organization, whereas in recent years the process has become more interdisciplinary, also including the Finance, Procurement, Marketing, and other departments.
