Mapping the Supply Chain

Mapping the Supply Chain

Thanks to disruptions and shortages, the term supply chain has become an everyday topic of conversation. But what exactly is the supply chain? How do you define it, conceptualize it, respond to it, and what resources are available to assist you in the process?

In this virtual session, experts from NIST-MEP, Manufacturer’s Edge, and Sustainment will discuss trends and best practices from across the country as companies strive to strengthen their supply chains by adopting strategies like reshoring and clustering as well as technological solutions like mapping and matchmaking to help them meet customer demand, maintain production, and stay afloat.

The goal of this event is to arm economic development professionals with the background, context, data, and resources you can leverage in order to help attract, retain, and expand your manufacturing base.
