Supply chain control towers

Real-time supply chain end-to-end visibility to drive ‘live’ action management

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, having end-to-end real-time insights into the supply chain is a critical capability. It enables organisations to understand areas of disruption, their magnitude, and improve contingency planning under rapidly evolving circumstances to ensure business continuity. Making informed and fast-paced decisions is key to ensure the flow of products and cash, and the ability to serve customers.

An end-to-end supply chain control tower provides organisations the capability to continuously track specific business issues from symptom to root cause, and drive action management. Including predictive and cognitive capabilities supported by a cross-functional team will help to improve the issue resolution time.

Deloitte offers support in setting up a rapid response control tower in a matter of weeks to provide immediate visibility on supply and demand exceptions at different levels of aggregation and to inform people within the organisation of the state and performance of the supply chain, helping the organisation to respond better in times of crisis, and beyond.
