Managing Unplanned Disruptions in the Medical Product Supply Chain

Managing Unplanned Disruptions in the Medical Product Supply Chain


There is no question that unprecedented measures are being taken to manage the global supply chain pressures.


Global powerhouse PWC has suggested that medical business supply chains must manage their inventory during the crisis to recover properly: “[Prepare] to set up a temporary inventory recovery and evaluation process, where applicable, and pursue alternative sourcing strategies.”


But many companies, especially in the critical medical device and supply industries, do not have proper systems in place to manage disruptions, stockouts and drastic changes in demand for their product. In fact, many mid-size and large medical supply distributors and manufacturers are lacking visibility across the entirety of inventory and have limited visibility into how these changes may affect the bottom line.

According to a recent GEODIS supply chain survey, only 6% of the companies believed that they have achieved a complete view of their supply chain. As supply chains become more complex and expectations continue to drive innovation, it is imperative to have the proper flexibility and control across the business. Cloud ERP is influencing thousands of global business operations with the ability to access important data within a single integrated system, from anywhere, at any time.


So, what’s next and how do supply distributors and manufacturers navigate the stresses of global supply chain issues? Medical product companies are rapidly adopting ERP systems to help fuel growth, plan for recovery, evaluate business structures, supply costs, and minimize any type of future business interruption with real-time data accuracy.
