Cyber attacks on supply chains are a constant threat to organizations. News media are regularly reporting cyber attacks to supply chains that result in data theft or denial of service. Examples abound, such as the theft of credit card data for 70 million customers from Target in 2013, and a sophisticated distributed attack that blocked the websites of major companies in the east-US such as Amazon, Starbucks and PayPal, during most the 21st of October 2016. Although relevant, this coverage often overshadows cyber-attacks that affect supply chain operations, which continue to occur without media attention.

Over-stocking and under-stocking spare parts have become the norm, especially for companies who do review-and-stock inventory planning. Because this traditional planning approach doesn’t account for variabilities from product failures, it’s even more challenging  plan spare parts inventory and service demand. But it no longer has to be this way.

Companies have invested substantial amounts of money and valuable managerial time in developing omni-channel supply chains. Although they have achieved some success, the vision of a seamless service that enables customers to shop via any channel or device and receive purchases on time at their chosen locations, has yet to be fully realized. The challenges of adding new capabilities, and connecting or modifying existing systems, have proved more formidable than generally anticipated.
