How China Is Disrupting Supply Chains in Europe

Chinese President Xi Jinping made a series of trips to Eastern Europe in 2016 as part of his advocacy campaign for the Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (OBOR). The initiative, launched by Xi Jinping in the autumn of 2013, aims to link Asia with Western Europe, CIS countries, and Africa through a network of interconnected infrastructures, especially rail, road, and maritime transport. OBOR is now the largest and most important geostrategic, economic and financial project being implemented globally. China, who has been systematically and intentionally bypassed by the most important regional trade agreements, is now making history by literally building its own way into the Western markets viewing Central Eastern European Countries (CEE) as the best opportunity for an approach.

Disrupting the Dominant Design in Distribution

Disrupting the Dominant Design in Distribution by Chris Caplice, Ph.D., Executive Director, MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics, Silver Family Research Fellow, Sr. Lecturer. Presented at the Supply Chain Forum, Friday, October 21, 2016 by the Center for Operational Excellence, Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University   Caplice asserts that just as there is a dominant design for consumer products, so, too, is there a dominant design for distribution with an accompanying scenario for every design each being susceptible to five potentially “driving” forces for disruption that cannot be controlled or influenced, with each having indirect, ambiguous and unknown effects.  By asking what trends can disrupt the dominant design for distribution in the US, Caplice suggests there are five potential disruptive driving forces. Trend #1—Densification of Products. “This is the process of reducing product size while maintaining or increasing its value. Examples of densification include laundry detergent (shifting […]

Introducing MESH – A One of a Kind Tool

MES is a metrics driven enterprise using data analytics as the basis for all our decision making activities. Market positioning, strategic planning, financial and budgeting processes improvement, associate and client planning, supply chain and inventory management, supplier performance and pricing, and cost reductions are just a few areas where data analytics driven decision making have made MES an industry leader.  MES has made the great leap from commodity analytics to advanced analytics.  From “that which can be done with commonly available tools without any specialized knowledge of data analytics” to “going beyond what happened, when it happened and what the impact was, (to) identify what caused it to happened and what can be done about it in the future.” (Bill Franks in “Taming the Big Data Tidal Wave” ) Trials using several commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) applications only proved we needed customized tools to support MES’s business model, its growing global […]
