May 24, 2022
Explore how supply chain management and sourcing in manufacturing is changing; capture compiled, real-world experiences; and make practical and useful suggestions for the manufacturing technology supply chain.

Suppliers will also have to make sure they satisfy the competitive expectations of the new normal: being agile, resilient, and customer-centric.
