Opportunities of Native Supply Chain Automation
The industry likes to adorn itself with terms like digitization and automation. Digitization, in particular, is often praised as a miracle cure that simply wipes away all the problems of outdated processes – virtually automatically.The problem here is that companies tend to do some kind of pretended digitization. In many companies, it is much more a case of pretended digitization for marketing purposes than of genuine digitization, which helps the company to make the leap into 2019. In general, many myths rank around the subject of digitization and not always the built-up hype is justified. Bain & Company has broken down 4 of the biggest myths around this topic. How do you recognize such a pretended digitization? Have you ever walked through a warehouse where employees manually entered the results of their last work steps into the digital system? Yes? Then you now know that these processes were not fully digitized. If digitization does not completely replace manual processes, then digitization is actually just throwing money out of the window. On the one hand, the changes actually carried out cost a lot of money, and on the other hand, the resulting increase in efficiency is kept within limits by the manual intermediate steps. Do not rely on partial digitization. Instead, create a clear roadmap to a complete automation of work processes. Think about logical steps to gradually adapt your outdated system to current technical conditions.
