One of the challenges the armed forces and defense industries face is the need to combine cost efficiency with minimum risk exposure. Defense budgets are being cut around the world, but the need for armed forces has not abated.
What can help? Strategic planning of your defense supply chain. If you are based in Europe, you have the opportunity to join a group of industry experts next month to learn how others in the industry are using outsourcing, strategic partnerships, and supply chain management to meet the challenge.
Senior level decision-makers from an international array of armed forces will meet with defense industry suppliers and sub-suppliers next month to discuss defense supply chains at the Defence Support Strategies Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, 18-20 April. Key speakers from the defense and armed forces industries will gather to discuss topics including:
Financial Sustainability: Partnering solutions that stabilize and reduce the cost for Ministries of Defense (MOD)
Simplifying the PPP Process: Efficiently contract with the industry for equipment & services
Practitioners´ Views: Problems and possibilities in launching a PPP-creating win-win partnerships
Multinational Cooperation in Supply Chain Matters: Cooperating for common service and supply solutions
Crisis Management Operations: Responding to rapid events using a flexible supply chain and reliable delivery mechanisms
In addition, panel debates are planned for outsourcing, PPP, and SCM within defense.
