Real estate and supply chain decisions can significantly affect each other. Challenges arise since supply chain demands change rapidly, while real estate decisions require long lead times. A recent TranSystems white paper offers insight into real estate plans that consider supply chain strategies and remain flexible.
TranSystems recommends asking key questions regarding network analysis. These include:
