Supply Chain has traditionally been seen as a linear progression involving: design, plan, source, make and deliver. Recently, there has been a major transformation in this space, encompassing the Industry 4.0 revolution, which allows the supply chain sequence to be more dynamic and act as an interconnected system that can more readily incorporate ecosystem partners and evolve to a more optimal state. This shift from a relatively static inflexible process to an interconnected, open system of supply chain operations, underpins how companies will compete and maintain their relevance.
Procurement & Supply Chain (P&SC) is seen as a critical strategic and commercial partner to the organisation rather than just being a stand-alone support function. The creation of regional hubs which includes shared service centers and regional procurement hubs enhances cost effectiveness and efficiencies. Global centralized teams are ever more frequently being established in Singapore due to its strong infrastructure and increasingly specialised talent pool. Technology continues to play a fundamental role in allowing new businesses to make the most of supply chain effectiveness, in this new landscape of micro logistics. The booming e-commerce startups in Singapore also have considerable appetite for P&SC professionals.
