The Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform is a great example of the impact that a digital platform can have on business operations in the CPGR industry, helping companies deal with challenges and capitalize on opportunities. The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, coupled with supply chain planning and optimization solutions, promises significant value across the entire value chain.

But how to develop an efficient and effective digital platform approach? It begins with focusing on five key areas fundamental for creating an optimal supply chain:

  1. Building resilience: Recognizing the industry's limited capacity to respond to disruptions, the companies must build resilience within the supply chain. Labor shortages, factory closures, and logistical delays, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, highlight the importance of agility, visibility, and adaptability.
  2. Mastering complexities: CPGR companies must navigate a landscape fraught with complexities, from fluctuating demand patterns to evolving regulatory requirements. By leveraging digitalization and advanced technologies, organizations can streamline operations and enhance decision-making processes.
  3. Driving efficiency: Digitalization offers unparalleled opportunities to drive efficiency within the supply chain. Moving beyond manual Excel spreadsheet planning, leaders can harness the speed, precision, and scalability of digital platforms to optimize processes and maximize productivity.
  4. Preserving profits and the environment: Balancing profitability with sustainability is paramount in today's environmentally conscious market. CPGR companies must be aware of the importance of incorporating low-carbon designs, eco-friendly materials, and renewable energy sources into supply chain strategies to mitigate environmental impact while safeguarding profitability.
  5. Delivering on customer promises: Meeting and exceeding customer expectations is crucial for maintaining a competitive edge. By enhancing visibility across the supply chain and optimizing inventory management, organizations can ensure timely delivery and superior customer satisfaction.
