Manufacturing and distribution companies struggle with the highs and lows of supply and demand.  A major challenge to overcome is balancing inventory and profitability. This balancing act relies on end-to-end visibility and communication. Frustration and inefficiencies occur when there is lack of communication in one or many of the links of the supply chain. If you can supply goods most efficiently at the lowest cost, then you can reach the goal of increasing profits. The challenge of most supply chain operations is to carry as little inventory as possible without running out. 

This eBook available below by Microsoft "The Savvy Leader’s Guide to Building an Intelligent Supply Chain" addresses several supply chain challenges. Download the eBook below to learn 9 ways to build an intelligent supply chain. Modern ERP systems provide integration which helps connect all parts of the supply chain and the operations of a company with real-time data and anytime anywhere communication.  The problem with using outdated systems is that the chain became super complex and “the systems themselves became monolithic, unable to match the increasing speed of modern industry, including the pressures of razor-thin margins and customers now accustomed to immediate gratification.” (page 4 of Microsoft's eBook "The Savvy Leader’s Guide to Building an Intelligent Supply Chain" published December 2019)
