Supply chain management has changed a lot. Now the SCM system is fully automated and a new term has been added 'reverse logistic'. Welcome back @Hailey. I think you will enjoy like before in the industry.

@SP, all good points. It never ceases to amaze me that smart phones have revolutionized just about everything we do. That technology seems to have "reached out and touched" more than we could have imagined.

@prabhakar, I think you are right... a couple of decades ago i don't remember reverse logistics being a concept that anyone talked about. I'm glad that we're talking about it now, and thinking creatively. It's going to be a critical thing going forward, both for the good of organizations and more importantly the world.

Homecoming is mostly peaceful and gives one a satisfaction that is much needed in the changing times. Supply chain has gone through lots of technology changes. The whole world is coming together. Use of RFID is one thing thats amazing. The cloud technology has done wonders. And of course Fedex, UPS and other logistics supppliers have also reinvented with time. The advancement in internet surfing, information availability is awesome. And the way common man uses internet and how easily and fastly one has access to internet is revolutionary. And last but not the least Smartphones.

The new paradigm of supply chain

One of the major transformation of the Supply chain that was say 25 years ago, is , in my opinion, that the supply chain is no more a one way operation as was earlier.

With so many regulations coming into force from various governments - the reverse logistics is becoming an integral part of the supply chain where the huge inventory of the fast becoming obsolete products and components has to flow back to their origination and get recycled in the environment friendly way.

This in my opinion is the supply chain challenge of this generation.

Welcome aboard!

Technology development accelerates component obsolescence, which gives opportunities to counterfeit and brings more challenges, which poses requirements for analysis of global supply chain.

@elctrnx_lyf: I agree, and it's good news to me. In the 80s, it was all about cool technology for the sake of cool technology. Now we are firmly planted in an era when technology is closely tied to business outcomes and goals. That's nothing but good news for the supply chain.

Hailey,

Welcome back to EBN!

I am sure you also will notice that as Supply Chains has gone more Spread out ;The World of Supply Chain's as we know it has become more and more uncertain.

Seemingly Innocous Issues in far corners of the world have the potential to Swing the Supply Chain entirely in Ways we can't even imagine today.

Right now,I am tracking the Mess in Egypt-They look Set to Shut the Suez Canal as well as in Syria with the Greatest of Interest.

Regards

Ashish.
