Comments Off

We want to alert our Supply Chain Matters subscribers, consulting clients and readers that the Q4 2013 Year-End edition of our quarterly newsletter was distributed this morning.  Please check your inbox and/or spam mail folders to insure that you received your copy.

The current newsletter features our complete review of 2013 global supply chain activity indices including an updated set of figures. The data points to a noticeable surge in supply chain and manufacturing activity both in the United States and Taiwan. This week, economists have raised concerns regarding the January contraction of China’s supply chain activity which comes during the traditional two month slowdown brought about by the celebration of the Lunar New Year holiday. The year has begun on a positive footing for the globe’s epicenter of manufacturing.

In addition to a synopsis of Q4-2013 supply chain developments, the newsletter features updates on transformation across the U.S. auto parts industry, adoption of supply chain vertical strategy frameworks and continued disruption of the supply chain and B2B focused industry analyst model.

Our tracking of global production and supply chain related activity now points to a discernible resurgence of breakout activity in the United States.

In addition to a review of global supply chain indices and summarization of Q3 developments, we have also included an article outlining the unique demand planning challenges for the aerospace industry where 20 year planning horizons are the norm, and where the interplay of current market dynamics can make planning rather interesting.
