Supply Chain Management in the Age of Information and Automation

The world fast-changing. Information systems, automation and robotics are infiltrating every sector of the supply
chain in our “information world”. There is a movement to increase the value of services by increasing their
efficiency and effectiveness. The supply chain professionals must adapt to the new age of information and
automation. Dr. Dean proposes the only way for the “Supply Chain Professional of the Future” to do this is by
identifying and utilizing expertise to cut cost and dominantly increase performance. The new way is called the Best
Value Approach. He proposes that experts think less and make minimal decisions, resulting in cost and schedule
savings. They can see from beginning to end, and assist those stakeholders who cannot see upfront, to see into the
future which results in the minimization of risk.

The “Supply Chain Professional of the Future” is a different paradigm from the traditional supply chain
professional. They affect the entire supply chain by bringing efficiency, simplicity and transparency to an
organization. The Supply Chain Professional of the Future must learn the new paradigm, vocabulary and actions to
adapt to the future.
