How to design a supply chain for a volatile market

The semiconductor market has seen significant volatility over the past few years, and getting the supply chain right to deal with such conditions is critical to the success of the enterprise.

Infineon Technologies has an award-winning supply chain that has helped the company grow despite market volatility.

Kurt Gruber, Infineon’s corporate vice president, corporate supply chain, will look at how the company’s supply chain has developed over the past 30 years, which he speaks at ESC Brussels in November.

He will look at why forecasts do not predict the future and how flexibility can be the answer to uncertainty.

Other programme highlights include:

* Horizontal collaboration with Procter & Gamble, and Cranfield

* Case study on Kellogg’s and Pringles’ integration

* Emerging markets case study from British American Tobacco

* Streamlining S&OP with Diversey and Logility

* Henkel’s case study on social responsibility

* Economic outlook by ING

* Interactive debate on adapting your supply chain with Nokia and UPC

* Panel discussion with Goodyear, Logility, and Telenet on the future of supply chain

ESC Brussels takes place at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Brusels on 20th and 21st November.
