Supply Chain Special Session: The Next Generation Of Supply Chain Innovation–A New Business Road Map for the Supply Chain, Domestic and International
Tuesday, June 11:
Part I – Panel Discussion, 1:30-3:40 pm CT
Part II – Workshop, 3:55-5:30 pm CT
A modern business road map must be integrated into the “Next-Generation U.S. Supply Chain Process” for it to be successful. This is imperative domestically with Utilities/Operators and emerging reactor technologies, and internationally as they compete to provide goods and services to global nuclear projects.
Engaged industry executives will share their perspectives on what is needed to improve collaboration and integration between Suppliers and Utilities/Operators.
Special focus will be dedicated to attendee and panelist interaction with a workshop to identify issues needing attention along with developing corresponding actions for a 2019-2020 Supply Chain Strategic and Tactical Working Plan.
