Visualization is a powerful tool that can help businesses gain insight into their supply chain operations. By leveraging the power of data visualizations, companies can optimize processes, reduce costs and increase efficiency in their supply chain network⁵.
There are several ways to visualize your supply chain. One approach is to draw a map to show the geographic flow of your supply chain¹. Another approach is to use a product flow diagram to show how products move through your supply chain¹. You can also use software to create a macro process perspective of your supply chain¹. Another way is to use the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model¹.
Data visualization simplifies complex connected supply chains, reveals patterns, and clarifies large volumes of data into a single unified view². Combined with timeline visualization, supply chain managers and analysts quickly make sense of supply chain activity and get a clear view of what’s happening².
By collecting, curating, and analyzing key supply chain metrics (SCM), you can spot inefficiencies within your ecosystem while capitalizing on your current strengths and establishing goals that will help your supply chain scale with the success of your company³.
In today’s dynamic and competitive business environment, harnessing the power of visualization in the supply chain can be a game-changer for organizations seeking success.
