Event Type : Webinar
Event Code : 019B
The NDIA Manufacturing Division's DoD Supply Chain Network Committee and Logistics Management Division presents its July Webinar, "Thoughts of Future Supply Chains – Breaking with the Past in a Post-COVID-19 Environment." Moderated by Irv Varkonyi (President, Supply Chain Operations Preparedness Education, LLC), this webinar will include a panel exploring the question, "What is the DoD concerned with in future supply chain networks?"
During this 60-minute panel, attendees will learn about topics such as:
- Demand-Driven Material Requirements Planning
- Supply Chain Risk Prioritization Assessments
- Risk Appetite Assessments
Supply Chain Management, at the end of 2019, appeared to be running full speed ahead on all cylinders. However, within 60 days, COVID-19 peeled off the layers to reveal processes that were extremely vulnerable. It exposed deep concerns with the DoD supply chain on the reliability of current and future suppliers and vendors. While most did not see these vulnerabilities before COVID-19, two supply chain gurus did: Carol Ptak, Partner, Demand Driven Institute LLC, and Greg Schlegel, Founder, The Supply Chain Risk Management Consortium. They developed tools that optimize operational performance while minimizing operational vulnerabilities. These tools will impact DoD contractors both large and small as future supply chain networks alter the balance among optimization, risk, and resilience.
*Please note: This webinar is closed to the press.
Attendees can expect introductory remarks, followed by a 30-minute discussion by our moderator and panelists before twenty minutes are reserved for questions at the end. More information can be found on the Agenda tab.
