An overview of managing multi-tier supply chains

August 29, 2016

As global supply chains become increasingly complex, it is no longer good enough to limit collaboration and visibility in the supply chain process to Tier-1 partners, especially for critical components coming from lower-tier suppliers. 

The benefits of multi-tier visibility and collaboration extends across the entire product life cycle, which is advantageous for manufacturers. Multi-tier connectivity can reduce planning cycle lead times, improve supplier performance, and reduce risk to the supply chain. On the other hand, the downside of multi-tier supply chains is that they can cause increased vulnerability and instability in your supply chain and negatively impact your order fulfillment process.
