We are helping our customers in becoming more agile, a term which has been in the scenario for past two decades.”

When asked about how supply chain agility can be measured, Sidhu told Gilmore that forecast accuracy is a way of measuring variability and agility is a company’s way of responding to rate of change demands in market. Any company’s ways of utilizing assets to meet the market demand and the return which they get on those assets plays a great role in deciding how agile a company is. So a company’s return on assets and their speed of planning is a great measure of company’s agility.

During the interview with Dan Gilmore, Sidhu told him about the companies he is currently working with. “We are working with a leading tire company and their supply chain is always constrained. Even with a ton of inventory, they were missing customer demands. We are trying to understand what their assortment should be in Texas v/s California. So we are working on their connected supply chain to cache changing customer demand and make them more agile.”
