Learn How the Latest Technologies and Tools Can Help Drive Your Business Operations

Everywhere, customer demands are becoming more exact and challenging, competition is growing and attacking from new directions, profit pressures are becoming more demanding, and resources are seriously challenged. Each new capability and technology adds pressure to short-cut and expands major results from manufacturers, distributors and retailers, with regards to scheduling, production, procurement, maintenance, sales/operations interface, strategy/tactics, returns, segmentation, promotions, seasonal-based demand, and much more. Yet each of the cutting edge technologies provides the environment for operations to justify and achieve mega-responses and resulting improvements.

This session by expert speaker Robert Sabath will discuss the real world operations’ realities of coping with, responding to, and taking advantage of new and popular cutting edge technologies, starting with the internet, the Cloud, Internet of Things, block chain, and their offspring. Robert will highlight the realities but will focus on practical examples, mini case studies, and adaptable examples, and very candid insights.

The real examples and specific actions that Robert will discuss will lead to spectacular results rather than dramatic failures, when cutting edge technologies are applied to operations across every level. The insights from this session will provide you with decision support and priority viewpoints to capture the breakthroughs while jumping clear of the multiple inherent risks of new, exciting technologies.

Robert will help you evaluate the fit and forecast of concepts and processes under consideration. He will help you establish priorities for decision criteria, and identify red flag issues. You will also become more aware of the sensitive points that may be lurking within the plans, suggestions and intentions of applications of cutting edge technologies that often may affect your operations. You don’t have to look far to find the clear winners and, unfortunately, the clear losers of the last few years. Both groups include recognized manufacturers, distributors, retailers and service providers. The lists are volatile, but the tools are available (and accessible) to accelerate as a winner or turn around as a loser.

Session Highlights

  • Learn to adapt tools used elsewhere to support your capabilities (scheduling, production, procurement, maintenance, sales/operations interface, strategy/tactics, returns, segmentation, promotions, seasonal-based demand)
  • Get quick case studies (avoiding the long tail, misreading the technology forecast, avoiding risky outsourcing, using partners’ resources, believing every promise, overdoing your infatuation with new technology)
  • Get an expanded case study (moving from ideas to action --- or missing the opportunity) for a manufacturer/distributor/retailer
  • Explore the good and bad sides of the Internet, Cloud, Internet of Things, Block Chain (plus the willingness to use and the accessibility of info; information challenges; and more)
  • Determine what’s important and where to focus
  • Get candid observations and answers to your questions
