Industry 4.0 and "Make in India" – supply chain essentials to help achieve these objectives
The "Make in India" concept will bring new trend in supply chain function. Instead of conventionally plant level production planning it is better to focus on demand driven model, which is more customer centric. This will also have a telling effect on Inventory holding of the company. In the present environment, most impacted area is supply chain.

Implementation of GST will have significant impact and will change the manner in which business is carried out in comparison with the ways of the current tax regime. What are those impact areas and what is the best way to overcome the challenges involved.

Effective Strategies in Bridging the Gap Between PLM Practice and Needs Across Demand-Driven Value Networks
Demand-driven supply chains align their planning, procurement, and replenishment processes to actual consumption and consumer de-mand.Becoming demand-driven allows a company to be more responsive to consumer needs while increasing profitability. Supply chains are becoming increasingly complex as companies expand their geographic footprint, increasingly leverage outsourced manufacturing, and expand their channel partner network. Supply chain executives are looking for ways to obtain real-time, transparent visibility across all tiers in the supply chain so as to better align supply with actual demand to help reduce supply disruptions and capital expenses.

Benefits of Free Trade Agreements in developing a Global Supply Chain
Companies need to factor into their sourcing decisions the opportunities provided by free trade agreements if they are to truly reduce lead times and take advantage of cost savings available throughout their supply chain. By incorporating trade agreements into their sourcing strategy, companies are able to analyze the savings opportunities that exist when sourcing from countries both local and afar, and determine where preferential duty rates may impact the traditional landed cost of their purchased goods by delivering better tariff outcomes. Companies that can effectively integrate trade agreements in this way will gain a competitive edge in the marketplace; however, given the dynamic nature of trade and with new agreements signed every other day, for most this is easier said than done.

Building Excellence in Multichannel Customer Experience: Online, Retail, B2C and B2B
In today's maturing consumer markets, emphasis is shifting from straightforward sales to a more holistic approach to customer life-cycle management. Effectively managing these different marketing, sales, and service channels poses a significant challenge. Companies need new strategies, structures, processes, and tools to deliver customer value across all channels. A multi-channel, integrative customer model that delivers customer value and signicant return on investment (ROI) requires both a strong understanding of customer preferences and behaviors and a robust IT architecture that supports the overarching customer relationship management (CRM) strategy.
