The COVID-19 pandemic caught most consumer goods organizations by surprise, offering very little opportunity to prepare and respond to the massive global supply chain disruptions. They struggled to adjust to massive demand shifts, volatile supply and limited visibility throughout their operations which were coupled with a lack of simulation capability to evaluate all scenarios in order to respond faster and avoid further. This pandemic has exposed the underlying vulnerabilities of the global supply chains chaos. The last 18 months have illustrated the importance of a well-functioning planning ecosystem.
The world has already weathered numerous waves of the pandemic with varying degrees of success. The world economy and supply chains have been battered and tested. However, the question still remains – Are companies truly prepared to face further adversity head on?
