Author Keynote: Harnessing the power of the Digital Supply Network (DSN) in Pharma to drive performance and mitigate risk (On-Demand)
Thorsten Wuest - Author of 'Digital Supply Networks' & Assistant Professor for Smart Manufacturing, West Virginia University
Amit Sinha - Author of 'Digital Supply Networks' & Specialist Leader, Deloitte Consulting
Tinglong Dai - Associate Professor of Operations Management and Business Analytics, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School
In this session, we're joined by some of the authors of the new groundbreaking 'Digital Supply Networks' bestseller that challenges the traditional 'linear' view of the supply chain. The digital supply network's underlying concept is the notion of building a 'digital thread' that runs from and to each inter and intra-organizational entity, replacing silos with a holistic ecosystem that encompasses all internal and external stakeholders in a business.
Drawing on modern-day disruptions, trends, and case studies, authors Amit Sinha and Professor Thorsten Wuest, address the six dimension model of the Digital Supply Network, which includes digital development, synchronized planning, intelligent supply, smart factory (smart manufacturing), dynamic fulfillment, and connected customer - all powered by a robust digital core powered by AI, ML, cloud, additive manufacturing, IoT & analytics, digital reality, robots, cobots, and drones, blockchain and cognitive automation, making the proactive management of end-to-end supply networks in real-time a reality even for the largest, most complex supply chains.

Keynote: Digitalize Your Supplier Network to Achieve Agility and Resilience in Your Supply Chain (On-Demand)
As the pharmaceutical supply chain continues to bear extreme duress, the strategic importance of supplier relationship management has become more critical than ever. As key players on the forefront of building more agile, responsive and resilient supply chains, supplier management teams can digitalize their supplier relationships to gain competitive advantage, maximize value, reduce risks, and continually improve business processes.
In this session, Shabbir Dahod, CEO of TraceLink will cover how supplier management teams can digitalize their processes with a network-based approach to:
The supply chain framework and linear communication channels (email, fax, phone) are no longer effective in today’s world. Supplier management teams must implement new digital processes - beginning with the ability for suppliers and manufacturers to interact, communicate and collaborate on a centralized digital network - connecting teams across different functions and companies within their own unique ecosystem.
Join this session to see how digitalization can help you achieve agility and resilience in your supply chain, gain a competitive advantage in your market and ensure your products reach their intended patients.
