 Strategic challenges of operations management

Operations managers are exposed to instability of demand (67%) and risks of supply disruption (61%). With the massive evolution of consumers’ needs, robust and dynamic tools are required for every organization dealing with complex resources assignment issues.

Among the main goals of operations management, increase in service level (52%) and productivity optimization (44%) reflect the necessity of meeting growing demand while reducing costs. To reach these goals, some projects are priority such as reconfiguration of logistic network and planning process (39%) and creation of new supply chain services (31%).

Digitalization and data collection is a first step, but automation of decision-making based on these data is the ultimate aim. Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics are key drivers to support better decision-making for operations management (check our blog article « How to level up your decision-making with prescriptive analytics?»).
