Supply Chain Analytics for Resilient Operations

After globalisation, Indian organisations are striving very hard to sustain their competitiveness in the digital era. Post-Covid-19, supply chains are also facing a lot of disruptions. Supply chains should become resilient by digitising their processes to overcome these disruptions. For digitisation of processes, organisations are implementing emerging technologies such as Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain Technologies, the Internet of Things, etc. In this digitisation process, organisations are facing many organisational and operational challenges. 

In the present context of a globalised market, the product life cycle has shortened due to the dynamic requirement of markets in terms of taste, durability, quality, flexibility, low price, etc. In the past, most organisations have tried to improve their individual operations for improving their individual performance by initiatives such as advanced manufacturing technologies applications, Just in time approach, lean manufacturing, quality management, etc. It has been observed that performance improvement in a particular organisation of a value chain has saturated; therefore, it is urgently required to improve performance in terms of the complete value chain. 

The performance of the whole value chain can be improved only after successful integration and coordination among different members of the value chain by using emerging technologies. Nowadays, competition between individual organisations has been replaced by competition among supply chains. The digitisation of supply chains also plays a critical role in improving supply chains resilience. In a global economy, to improve the competitiveness ranking of any country, minimisation of waste in processes and efficient production systems are essential. It has been observed specifically in context of India that leakages in public distribution systems, waste in food sector, losses in transportation sector, lack of IT-enabled systems, lack of world class product quality, processes inefficiencies, escalation of input resources cost, product rejections at buyer end, huge inventory stock, and lack of process digitisation are major areas of concern. 

To tackle such challenges, each individual needs to be trained about applying emerging technologies and decision-making tools in supply chains. Therefore, knowledge and application of different decision-making tools such as multi-criteria decision-making tools, linear programming, decision tree, descriptive and predictive analytics is very important. For effective supply chain management in the digital age, accurate decision-making based on available data also plays an important role.
