    Supply Chain Innovation and Supply Chain Optimization

      Ulises Pabon elaborates on the differences between supply chain optimization and supply chain innovation. Even though they may complement one another, integrate well together and serve similar goals, there are some conceptual differences between optimization and innovation. Pabon explains that optimization has more to do with eliminating waste through redesigning or reconfiguring the players or components in the supply chain. It can mean negotiating and coming to an agreement with the players to, for example, reduce transactions or eliminate x amount of the packaging from the raw material, so that less resources are used.
