When Elementis Specialties started looking to expand its global footprint, it was clear that global demand planning tools would be necessary to connect disparate systems across the chemical supply chain. Gustavo Araujo, Supply Chain Director, had to guide his team through the challenges that come with implementing a new global system. The company is still transitioning into this platform and learning how to align the supply chain so that all parts of the process are optimized. For every process, the company now sits down and does a map of the "as is" model, or how the company handles it now, and then maps a "to be" model, or how it will be adjusted. Listen to him here as he discusses in detail how Elementis is working toward better alignment across the supply chain. He will speak further on this topic at the SCMchem conference, which you can learn more about here
