Virtual Series II

Mapping the Supply Chain

Strategies, Tools, and Resources for Building a More Resilient Ecosystem

August 17, 2022| 10 – 11:30 a.m.

ABOUT THE SERIES:

With the same spirit that drove EDCC’s 2021 Virtual Series, we will tackle our most perplexing issues by bringing together thought leaders within our industry, to explore concepts, theories and analysis that will help bring consensus around these issues. This work will result in timely thought-leader position reports that can guide professionals through conversations and actions at the local level.

EDCC is committed to leading the effort of engaging our vast community of economic development stakeholders including local, regional, and state leaders. By harnessing the knowledge and expertise of our contingency along with extensive recovery research, EDCC’s goal is to help educate, inform, and advocate for near and long-term resiliency applications to help spur economic recovery.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM:

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.

Moderator: Rob Newbold, Director of Client Services, Mfr Edge

  • Mark Schmit, Manager National Accounts at Manufacturing Extension Partnership
  • Nico Thomas, Performance Analyst at National Institute of Standards and Technology
