The PERFORMANCE Magazine team was present at the Supply Chain Analytics conference from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, which took place between the 3 and 5 June, 2015. After conducting a several interviews with the experts present at the event, we gathered the valuable insights into this series of articles related to Supply Chain Analytics.
Luc Gilleaux is in charge of the Supply Chain Planning & Material Management for Schneider Electric.
When asked about the importance of managing performance in the Supply Chain, Luc Gilleaux was definitive in his opinion that performance is key to differentiating the company from that of the competitors’, to becoming more visible in your customers’ eyes and to gain your suppliers’ trust and recognition. As he stated, for him, performance in the Supply Chain “is key to having the right product, at the right time, and at the right price.”
We asked Luc Gilleaux to name some trends that he recognized in Supply Chain Analytics in 2015. He enlisted cross relationship analysis, the emergence of the composite indicator, root cause analysis, and data visualization.
However, the biggest challenge for Supply Chain Analytics remains, in his opinion, extracting the appropriate data from the pool of information which companies juggle with today.
