How a Manufacturer Deals with the Supply Chain Issues that ‎ Impact you and Tries to Make Your Life Easier
A system integrator and manufacturer panel discussion.

‎“We can’t deliver the project if we can’t get the parts!”‎

Disruption has been a recurring theme over the past few years, and if you are a part of the ‎industrial automation project delivery ecosystem, the global supply chain has likely caused ‎some disruption for you. ‎

Material scarcity, port congestion, shipping delays, increased freight costs, and demand ‎peaks have become common conversational topics. ‎

But disruption isn’t always a bad thing – digital transformation is disruptive too! ‎

And in the midst of the challenges that 2022 brought, Schneider Electric climbed from #4 to ‎‎#2 on Gartner’s Global Supply Chain Top 25 and was the winner of the award for Process or ‎Technology Innovation, based on its “self-healing” supply chain platform.‎

Join key leaders from Schneider Electric (SE) to hear how digital transformation helped them ‎respond to the disruptive challenges – and how these challenges and responses affect your ‎business. ‎

‎(You might even get some ideas on solutions to help your customers be more adaptive or ‎increase their efficiency!) ‎

In this session, you will:‎
‎• Hear about the factors that impact manufacturer supply and how SE managed them.‎
‎• Learn how to most effectively interact with a global manufacturer on supply chain issues. ‎
‎• Discover ways to pursue projects when product is scarce. ‎
There will be time for Q&A, so bring your questions!‎

Know someone who would be interested in attending this session? Invite them! This session ‎is open to all.‎
