Presenter: Martin Mirsky, President of Supply Chain Systems, Inc
The presentation will focus on creating supply chain models using Excel and VBA.

The easiest way to distribute this capability to the masses is by extending the power of excel by automating models with VBA.

So how do we derive order from this chaos of information?
How do we align all parts of the supply chain to create customer-focused organizations that can quickly adapt to shifting demand?
In this session, we’ll discuss:
