Is Onshoring The Road to Sustainable Supply Chains?

Companies can now relocalize their production more sustainably and efficiently with smarter supply chain planning on an integrated platform.

Onshoring can be a sustainable step in times of much-needed supply chain decarbonization, frequent disruptions and increasing social pushback from offshored employees. However, some companies are also considering friend-shoring so they are not limited to only domestic production. Whichever relocalization route they choose, one thing is clear: All roads to more sustainable supply chains start with smarter planning.

Delivering the right relocalization strategy requires preparation, yet not all companies are equipped to do so. More than 60% of them do not have the right tools1 to optimize their workflow assignment and supplier relationship management (SRM). 

To address this gap and begin their onshoring journey, companies can turn to smart supply chain solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.

Optimized Onshoring in Three Smart Ways

With DELMIA’s smart supply chain planning solutions, companies can optimize their entire network in the three steps shown below.

1. Effective planning

Smarter, integrated planning on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform centralizes the data repository to speed up supply chain planning and optimization via two parts:

Onshoring for Sustainable Supply Chains > Female Supply Chain Planner > Dassault Systèmes®

Data-backed actions

With all critical data points in one place, companies have full supply chain visibility. This way, they can accurately model and simulate the outcomes of any planning scenario – and quickly respond to changes, risks and disruptions.

Onshoring for Sustainable Supply Chains > Virtual Lines on Warehouse > Dassault Systèmes®

Integrated planning processes

A virtual twin of the supply chain comes with advanced scenario planning capability, which enables accurate predictive analysis. With it, companies can test different contingency plans and implement data-backed enterprise-wide changes.

2. Integrated collaboration

Collaborating in the platform’s secure collaborative environment results in better teamwork, improved workforce performance and greater enterprise-wide productivity. Check out our customer story for a real-life example of how it worked for them.
