About the Conference

DMSCA2017 National Education and Training Conference

Procurement Transformation and Innovation in Digital Supply Chains

"Within just 5 short years, major corporations expect dramatic improvement in their supply chain processes, from automation to better collaboration, all enabled by technologies like supply chain visibility, big data, robotics, and the cloud." Never before has Supplier Development for Manufacturing, Logistics and Distribution Suppliers been more important for their competitiveness and positioning for business development in strategically sourced Supply Chains. The digitization of the Supply Chain is rapidly changing how Suppliers must compete and how Customers and Suppliers Collaborate to foster Innovation.

PARTICIPATE - Participate in a live and interactive Supply Chain simulation exercise to solve a real business problem and gain more understanding of Supplier and Customer collaboration and performance alignment challenges.

GAIN - Gain insights into how Manufacturing, Logistics, and Distribution Suppliers' value performance and Continuous Improvement will be impacted by Supply Chain digitization from Corporate Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs), Supply Chain Management and Innovation Executives, and Subject Matter Experts.

HEAR -Hear about "DMSCA Direct "and "DMSCA Vertical Events" and how they connect Suppliers with the CPO driven Sourcing and Buying Organization (SBO) to drive business development  for performance-certified Suppliers and value for Customers.

LEARN - Learn about how the Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP) and how CMP Performance Certification can position Suppliers for strategic competitiveness and  new mandates for Advanced Manufacturing workforce training.

As the only organization in the U.S. that leverages the globally recognized APICS  Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model to catalyze Supplier Development and their achievement of Supply Chain Excellence, DMSCA2017 is not an event that Customers and Suppliers leadership should miss..
