California, TechnoBusiness US ● The supply chain model of goods around the world is changing faster than expected due to the impact of the pandemic and the use of technology.
Manufacturing and supply chain modeling expert who is also President of LMA Consulting Group, Inc. Lisa Anderson predicts that the change in the supply chain model of goods will continue, not only until 2024.
“Disruption of the supply chain model is real and will last for quite a while,” he said. “Every supply chain model is a complex set of connections that extends from the supplier to the end-user.”
There are three main reasons why the supply chain model of goods is changing more rapidly. First, labor. The pandemic has limited the number of workers, both due to activity restrictions and requests for early retirement.
Second, shifting demand. According to Lisa Anderson, the pandemic is causing a shift in demand. This shift in demand causes a change in the supply chain model.
He explained that when it was difficult to find genuine goods, customers would turn to “the wrong product in the wrong place at the wrong time”. But, once the original item is available in the market, the demand is gone.
The most expensive is the third reason, namely equipment. Lack of equipment in the distribution process will change the supply chain model. In fact, equipment shortages occur in all industries.
“Basically, the supply chain model will be in a constant state of evolution,” explains Anderson. “Successful manufacturers are adaptive, resilient and forward-thinking in the face of change.”●
