    I'm not sure if this would need to be another step our part of 1, however I think having buy-in from executives and all team members is really key. Without this it would be tough to increase trust with suppliers and especially difficult “radical transformation for added value”. Either way this was a great graphic.

    Greg, you've pinpointed what's probably the biggest challenge, right? But I have to believe the “sell” proposition of bringing wireless into new aspects of the supply chain must resonate to some degree with most executives. 

    Now they may not be willing to spring for it, but they have to understand its fundamental value. 

    (Separately, Douglas Alexander had a great piece, if you missed it, on an excellent use ot wireless technology in the logistics end of things). 

    Thanks for commenting!

    I understand the need for managing the who supply chain seamlessly and using a SCM software instead of Excel.

    The Buyer Supplier relationship is normally a one-to-many supply chain link and the buyer can enforce his processes onto each supplier connected to it.

    But in case of the Supplier it is many-to one chain where he is supplying to multiple buyers.

    In such a scenario whose processes the supplier should adopt?

    I agree.

    Excel is not the ideal tool here.

    We need effective SCM tools with good links to a robust Database here.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    I like SAP's Solutions here.
