One Network and KPMG to Speak at Industry Week Best Plant 2013 Conference

DALLAS, TX. — April 15, 2013 — Richard Dean, One Network’s CMO will join Robert Barrett, Managing Director Advisory of KPMG, to speak at the Industry Week Best Plants 2013 Conference, being held April 22-24, in Greenville, SC. Their session is titled “Demand-Driven Manufacturing Supply Chains”.

During this session, Mr. Dean and Mr. Barrett will discuss how manufacturing supply chains are evolving into demand-driven networks.  These networks provide, among many things, real time visibility into demand signals and inventory positions at all consumption points, global views of all transactions, and the potential to reduce system lead times to near theoretical minimums, all of which are required to take manufacturing supply chains to their next level.

Their presentation will leverage the results of KPMG’s Global Manufacturing Outlook survey of manufacturing supply chains,  and show how companies are increasingly turning to a new generation of cloud-native platforms that enable unlimited numbers of trading partners to plan, execute, monitor, orchestrate and optimize in real time all of the business processes that take place throughout their supply chain ecosystem. The results include dramatic inventory reductions, improved customer responsiveness, and improved OEM/Supplier relationships.

IndustryWeek’s Best Plants conference provides attendees with a wealth of tools, techniques and ideas to help them in their pursuit of manufacturing operational excellence. Keynote speakers and well-targeted sessions, plant tours, networking opportunities and exhibits deliver content in myriad ways during this 2.5 day event.
