This IDC Manufacturing Insights Perspective looks at the role visibility can play in supply chain cost management and the specific capabilities that TCS brings to the manufacturing industry.
Excerpt from the report:
“TCS has an interesting perspective on the notion of unanticipated costs, believing that much of the problem manufacturing companies experience is a function of a lack of broad functional input into supply network design and supplier selection. At first blush, this seems like a curious concept. What input, after all, should logisticians have in the selection of suppliers? Yet, if the performance of a particular supplier is driving excessive premium freight, logisticians are precisely the people in the organization who should have a say.”
