The 4 C’s of Supply Chain Execution (SCE)

If you want to optimize your operations, you’ll need top supply chain execution to bring your YMS, WMS, and other logistics systems together. A fully featured supply chain execution system uses four Cs to make your logistics and supply chain management more efficient.

Convergence – To get a complete picture of SCE, you need to have visibility across transportation, yard and warehouse management functions.

Collaboration – You have to enable collaboration (based on single-source-of-truth) between the third-parties involved in SCE, including shippers, carriers, drivers and 3PLs.

Consistency – IT systems need to be integrated so you can get a coherent, real-time view across existing planning and scheduling systems. Integration is vital to supply chain execution and the key to connecting the dots between inbound shipments, yard movements, and warehouse activity so you can streamline check-in, assign dock doors or drops, minimize moves, and close out a visit to the warehouse when the outbound shipment departs the facility.

Cloud – Distributed systems create islands of data. The cloud provides unprecedented availability, secure accessibility, and flexible integration to enable the C’s above.

PINC’s Enterprise Visibility Suite delivers on all these fronts by following shipments across facilities (as shown in the image below) and allows enterprises to view multiple facilities side-by-side against criteria such as departure time variance and dwell time. This helps identify the pain points in your Supply Chain Execution, wherever they may be.
