Stocks in this article: AVT

No supply chain is invulnerable to disruption, but there are technologies and solutions available to help companies gain the visibility necessary to more proactively manage their supply chain risk and at the same time provide a superior customer service experience. Avnet Electronics Marketing’s Vice President, Global Supply Chain Operations Lalit Wadhwa will explain how OEMs can leverage this visibility to become more competitive and profitable at the Chief Supply Chain Officer Summit on November 29, in Chicago.

The Chief Supply Chain Officer Summit is an invitation-only event catering to senior level supply chain and operations executives focusing on the exchange of innovative ideas and solutions for managing the complexities of today’s globally extended supply chains.

Wadhwa, a 20-year veteran of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), will present “Leveraging Supply Chain Visibility for Improved Response Management – An Avnet Case Study” on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 4:30 p.m. CST at the Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile. The session will address the following:

  • The need for supply chain visibility in globally extended supply chains
  • The multiple benefits supply chain visibility fuels
  • A case study demonstrating how leveraging visibility can drive supply chain segmentation and cost-to-serve analysis

“Visibility throughout the supply chain has always been a challenge for operations executives, but when you add contemporary factors such as globalization and outsourcing to the mix, OEMs can quickly find themselves in the dark about the inner workings of their supply chains. This can be a very dangerous and costly scenario for any business,” said Wadhwa. “However, there are also resources available to organizations today that can help them regain command and control of their extended supply networks and safeguard critical working capital and operating expenses.”
