IDC PlanScape: Supply-Driven Design
This IDC PlanScape highlights technology initiatives that help manufacturers design products that mitigate the inherent risks within supply chains and protect revenue and profits.
“Given the current fragile environment surrounding geopolitical trade, increases in natural disasters, and labor shortages (especially within existing manufacturing regions), supply chain disruptions are anticipated to continue and manufacturers need effective ways to respond to these challenges. By embracing supply-driven design, manufacturers will develop resilient products and processes that can be quickly modified, adapted, and/or reconfigured to address unforeseen supply chain disruptions,” said John Snow, research director, Product Innovation Strategies at IDC.
