Supply chain management (SCM) requirements have changed significantly over the past few years. The buzzword nowadays when managing global supply chains is adaptation to increasing global complexity and volatility. Growing pressure from financial markets and the difficulty of increasing operating margins and working capital in this environment require efficient planning and execution of global value-added processes. More and more companies are therefore relying on LEAN Supply Chain Planning. This approach not only greatly simplifies existing planning processes; it also improves the synchronization and variability management of global supply chains.
