Attendees will join Chris Wire, Senior Director of Supply Chain Management at Xilinx, and co-presenters Jonathan Colehower, Vice President of Supply Chain Management at Oracle, and Paul Matthews, Vice President for CAP Gemini Ernst & Young, for an in-depth look at how leading companies are lowering costs and reducing risk through supply chain postponement. This presentation will explore the future viability of postponement and its role within the supply chain in addition to implementation challenges.

Over the last decade, postponement has received extensive attention as a strategy to reduce costs and lower risk. Recently, APICS, Oracle, and Cap Gemini Ernst & Young teamed up to jointly launch a study of leading companies implementing postponement to understand successes, challenges, and critical success factors as well as discuss common approaches and practices required to exploit the true potential of postponement. This study also involved interviews of several key thought leaders, executives, and subject matter experts to gain significant insights and perspectives on the topic. This presentation will reveal the key findings from this study and explore whether or not postponement is right for your company.
