To develop larger savings opportunities, supply chain must expand the use of supply utilization analysis and alignment. This requires effectively and collaboratively using real-time, granular usage data, acquired through electronic technology such as barcode and Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID). Understanding and engaging Millennials’ unique attitudes and capabilities, especially their technology orientation, and successfully integrating these with Baby Boomer attributes, will enable supply chain to leverage the new workforce culture through the increased use of electronic technology to shift the cost savings paradigm to supply utilization alignment. Through this synergy, supply chain can drive significant savings to help their facilities weather the perfect storm of declining revenues and increasing costs.
