This PowerPoint slide deck was presented at at Kinexions '11 by Joe McBeth, vice president, supply chain management, Jabil.
Today's supply chains are becoming increasingly complex with increased dependencies across the globe, accelerated life-cycle compression, more volatile demand patterns, and persistent cost pressures. These complexities allow only the most critical nodes to be tightly managed and leave significant portions of the supply chain exposed. One only needs to look to the Japan crisis as a glaring example. Learn how Jabil leverages RapidResponse to identify and map critical supply chain characteristics by end product to produce optimal results.
