Manufacturing imperative: A green supply chain

IT can transform high-technology companies into green enterprises by enhancing the economic and ecological impact of operations. In a white paper published at Supplychainbrain.com, experts from Infosys identify focus areas for a sustainable supply chain.

Our experts discuss how green IT can accelerate product innovation, minimize costs and mitigate risks, while reducing the carbon footprint. This can be done with:

  • Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) tools and Agile PLM products – to help manage product schedules, collaborate with suppliers and customers, and implement changes rapidly
  • Applications for transportation management and network optimization – to rationalize the supply chain, facilitate consolidation of loads and reuse of components, and enable planning for disruptions in the network
  • Lean manufacturing and advanced procurement solutions – to synchronize production with product demand and supplies, automate the procurement cycle, and enhance the responsiveness of the supply chain
  • Packages for sustainability reporting – to track environmental performance, streamline socio-environment reporting, and identify process areas for improvement
