Disruptive technology in the supply chain
At the start of the show, Adams introduced Supply Chain Digital’s poll of the week, ‘Which techs do you feel are the most disruptive in supply chain?’. The four choices for the Supply Chain Digital Show audience included artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (Iot), additive manufacturing (3D printing), and drones.

Is old technology still relevant in today’s supply chains? And what is 3D printing?
Following on from the poll, Ashcroft discussed the latest news in the Supply Chain industry focusing on a recent interview with SAP Supply Chain Centre Of Excellence VP Andy Hancock, on the relevance of 80s computing in industry 4.0 technology.
Tying in nicely, Ashcroft shifted his focus to modern technology breaking down additive manufacturing’s (3D printing) use in the supply chain and how such technologies will change the industry forever.
Could a Russia, Ukraine invasion impact procurement and supply? And why are procurement employees feeling burnt out?
Following on from Ashcroft’s latest news, Wilson discusses the significant amount of trade conducted between both Russia and Ukraine and, in particular, the US and Europe. Reflecting on a recent Interos article, she highlights four major risks for suppliers should the conflict come to fruition.
Wilson also looks at the recent figures highlighting significant employee burnout among procurement professionals. The rising issues of the last two years have been taking their toll. CIPS, a professional body for procurement and supply, identifies two ways organisations can reduce employee burnout.
