Clearly, we are living in a mobile world. At the 2015 Oracle Value Chain Summit last week, if you looked in any session room or in the hallways, you could see people on their mobile devices doing things like checking email, tweeting, taking pictures and arranging their schedules. During the sessions, there were some fascinating presentations and demos across all Value Chain solution areas on using mobile technology to perform critical business tasks such as managing and maintaining remote assets, reporting equipment issues and providing status reports on inventory.
During one of the Manufacturing solution area keynotes, Mobility in Manufacturing, LNS Research President and Principal Analyst Matthew Littlefield presented on industry trends. He closed out the session with a few recommendations that companies might want to consider as they develop their mobile strategies:[Read More]

Wow, it’s hard to believe another Oracle Value Chain Summit has
come and gone. What a whirlwind of a
week! From Oracle’s Glenn Seninger’s Welcome
on Monday afternoon to yesterday’s final track sessions, the San Jose
Convention Center was thrumming with everything product and supply chain. And it doesn't have to end here...
The entire Oracle team is thrilled and humbled by the outpouring of customer, sponsor, analyst, staff, and speaker support. We were delighted to see so many attendees this year, especially given the harsh weather conditions elsewhere making travel difficult. This community is clearly dedicated to forging new connections, sharing best practices, and exploring the future of value chain excellence.
Oracle’s CEO Mark Hurd perhaps said it best in his keynote
on Tuesday morning: “I have incredible respect for people who actually run
supply chains.” And for good reason. Supply
chain leaders are at the forefront of...

May 31, 2014 was the official deadline for U.S.-listed companies to disclose use of conflict minerals to the SEC. Of the estimated 6,000 companies that were required to file audits of their tin, gold, tungsten or tantalum in their products, only 1,300 filed reports, and these results have revealed the ongoing challenges that many manufacturers are having complying with this legislation.
An article authored by IDC analyst Heather Ashton,"Conflict Minerals Reporting Passes a Notable Milestone" notes that many leading companies such as Intel, Apple and HP filed their reports ahead of the deadline, but other companies are struggling with trying to trace their supply chain back to raw materials, especially as many non-U.S. based suppliers have no legal requirement to comply with the law since they are not U.S.-listed companies. This has resulted in widely varying levels of reporting from company to company. Check out the full article here. Are your customers experiencing the same pains?

Manufacturing, across most verticals, is once again at a crossroads. Offshoring, nearshoring and outsourcing are all strategies that manufacturers adopted over the past decade or so, in order to increase the bottom line. However, we are starting to see the proverbial pendulum swing the other way. While profits have grown, there has been a cost, which includes the decline of the once mighty manufacturing center of Detroit. "Built in Detroit," an article published in a March 2014 issue of Time, features Shinola--a Detroit-based company established in 2012 to bring the art of watchmaking to the U.S., and is hoping to revive Detroit as a leading manufacturing center.
Read on and join the conversation! What do you think of what Shinola is doing? Is it practical? Will it work to revive Detroit? Let us know what you think in the comments section.[Read More]
