Even though companies are awash with supply chain data, one of the most important sources of information, demand signals, are not fully integrated into operating and decision-making systems. This represents a critical gap in supply chain lines of communication. Yet industry leaders believe that demand signals emanating from key sources such as POS, warehouse withdrawal records, and inventory databases, can be harnessed and integrated into management systems to increase network efficiency.

Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood is promoting Obama's "livability" program,
which includes an emphasis on transit, pedestrian-friendly design, and high-density, mixed-use
