Traditional supply chains based on demand forecasts can limit a company’s ability to respond quickly and effectively to new and unforeseen developments. vectors which previously affected only corporate IT systems. However, a demand-driven, pull approach focused on real-time updates on customer demand and backed by deep visibility across the supply chain can help companies keep pace with change in today’s chemical industry.
