Reporting is key to an efficient, responsive, lean, and profitable supply chain. Yet reporting is often seen as (and is) a real obstacle to improvement.
In this interactive session we will review best practices to ensure that the most common mistakes are avoided:
- Pipeline of report development
- Requirements gathering
- Ad-hoc vs. standard reports
- How many reports are needed
- IT or not IT?
