Supply Chain Collaboration; A Panasonic Success Story

Being the second division from the bottom of the list for poor ’on-time’ delivery performance of over 200 Panasonic divisions world wide, John describes the challenges, the solutions, and the quality tools used. A story of bringing the supply chain together, breaking down the silo walls of management, opening up communications, re-building processes, along with utilizing existing technology to increase visibility, velocity and communications, and most importantly recognizing the people and their effort to make change.
