Supply chain Companies have struggled to gain detailed and real time view of what happens in their network, both within the organization and externally. Efficiency of many aspects of the Supply Chain, like Inbound Logistics, Flow Management and Labour Management are highly influenced by the amount and type of information available. Material and Capital are the two primary pillars of every Supply Chain. Equally important are the links of the chain formed by the various branch offices, distributors, warehouses, stockists, dealers, resellers and retailers etc. However, the data, facts and figures which capture the micro-level details of the functioning of the entire Supply Chain form another critical aspect i.e. information. The need for greater visibility into the supply chain has many starting points. With supply networks often having footprints in different countries, factors including distance, time zone and even language comes in. Wide and diverse supply chains also mean diverse distributor systems where data gets isolated, leading to issues of comprehension and access. When businesses fall back on manual processes to correct this, it usually results in poor decision-making. In other words, resorting to human intervention to collect data from internal systems and external partners increases the likelihood of risk while simultaneously destroying efficiency.
Supply Chain Visibility is the traceability of goods as they move through the supply chain to ensure availability of the right product, in the right quantity, at the right time, in the right place. The Supply Chain Visibility process essentially sums up as the collection of distributed data across various stages, making this information mobile so it can be transferred and consolidated in a sensible manner for display and usage. Adapting and succeeding in a volatile market environment requires not just continuous flow of data from the bottom to the top, but also an automated system which is essentially self-sufficient dependable and scalable.
