Supply Chain Management Symposium 2017

Supply Chain Management Symposium 2017On October 26, 2017, element61 and Moore Belgium Strategy & Operations will organize their annual event on Supply Chain Management Symposium 2017.

The event will kick-off with a keynote on views and directions for value and supply chains in the coming years – and how to make Industry 4.0 happen in your company. Organizations are chased to manage rapid changes in a globalized world, expecting new levels of Supply Chain excellence. The empowered and ever more demanding consumer, supported by ubiquitous data, requires new and innovative technologies, processes and systems.

After the keynote speech, there will be three tracks: one on Supply Chain Management, a second one on Business Analytics in the context of supply chain management and one in Engineering Management. Also some real-life cases will be presented. People registered can switch between the three tracks. 

It is our firm conviction that Agile supply chains need Agile Business Analytics solutions. Some of you provided feedback after the September 13, 2016 event ‘Operational Excellence supported by Qlik Business Intelligence’. This feedback was very encouraging and we tried to implement these remarks into our agenda below. 

In the Business Analytics track, we will focus on actionable business insights. We will present different data analytics use cases, product presentations, software demos, and customer success stories.

The Supply Chain Management Symposium 2017 is an event oriented at the Business User. Learn from best practices and network with your local peers.

The location has a limitation of 140 participants, so registrations are made on a "first come, first served" basis.
