Analytics in Supply Change Management: Is There a Dark Side?

Noushin Ashrafi, Jean-Pierre Kuilboer

Abstract

The growing ability to collect real-time data combined with a desire to optimize efficiency and effectiveness have pushed the organizations to realize the value of analytics and intelligent supply chain. This study offers an overview of supply chain management and the critical role of analytics to enhance supply chain processes and, subsequently, performance. While efficiency and effectiveness is the ultimate measure of success for any organization, this study recommends a look at the consequences of such success in the global economy. As the world of commerce increasingly relies on outsourcing and the cheap labor market, the role of technology to expedite the exploitation of that market should be scrutinized. It is time to discuss not only the contributions of analytics to facilitate supply chain management but also its impact on exploitation through fierce competition among suppliers operating in developing countries.
