A Thought Leadership White Paper By Howard W. Coleman, MCA Associates

You know your supply chain management needs to be updated when…well, it actually can be a little bit different for every company. But, if you have not examined your inventory and supply chain "drivers", in some time, and have not fully recognized the value of new "business intelligence" applications, then maybe it's time to take a look at how some new innovations can impact profit, service level and working capital improvement.
