Why Manual Supply Chain Modeling in Excel is Outdated

Once upon a time, Microsoft Excel was a minor miracle of useful software functions, and it continues to be a viable option for small businesses. But an article at BizCommunity says Excel just will not do anymore for supply chains that want to stay competitive. Human error, both in data input and formula creation, can find itself into Excel and wreck your models. Software is available that removes much of that risk while providing more advanced tools than are available in Excel, and it can help simulate viable scenarios that would be difficult to project manually. The article believes the major reason why supply chains do not upgrade to these new options sooner is due to a worry that they will not add enough value for the cost, but rest assured that the value will become apparent as reports are simplified and streamlined into easily digested implementation plans. Do some fishing and consider all the solutions available to you.
