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.
