Supply chains were already challenged before COVID-19, then suddenly issues like flexibility, resiliency and transparency were taken to new levels as manufacturers dealt with the reality of significant disruptions.
For many manufacturers the speed and magnitude of the disruptions exposed their supply chain planning and operations. New suppliers, new manufacturing models, and new demands. Suddenly, manufacturers had to source, certify and onboard new suppliers, seek greater supplier transparency, and manage fluctuating demand and supply in real time.
