I am sorry but I cannot attend the call but it sure would be good to get the views of  augh and hopefully someone can ask about the increased investment cost of training people in the new technology.

@hospice: I think mistakes are okay as long as they are not being repeated again and again. If so those are not mistakes.

@Eldredge: Mistakes are avoidable with the right expertise. In times of budget constraints, a minor investment error can be disastrous to the companies.

The best organizations carefully match their investment in tech to the needs of the organization. THere's a wealth of capabilties and options available to the supply chain and it's a matter of finding the right fit. Has anyone gone through that process? Who was involved? What process did you use?

I would be willing to bet that their investment in technology also results in fewer mistakes, shortages, scheduling errors, and unnecesary inventort as well.
