Last week, we discussed Continuous Intelligence. When embarking on digitizing your supply chain, a first step is to shift responsibility for communicating current order status onto the suppliers resulting in the collection of real-time, actionable information for the business.
Sharing data throughout the enterprise
The next step in the digitization journey is to create a way to present this information to your stakeholders. The information has to be clear, useful, predictive, and actionable. Interactive dashboards need to be created for each of user group.
A distinct project view
For example, project managers in the field receive project specific information on material shipments to their site. This project portal gives a holistic view of the project that could then be filtered for shipments showing potential project impact. Which allow them to make better informed decisions directly impacting their project.
