Meet the 2013 “SDCE 100” Winners Honored in our Annual Awards Program

Honoring the best projects of today’s complex supply chain

Fort Atkinson, Wis.May 13, 2013Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, this week announced its 11th annual listing of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, highlighting the industry’s “100 Great Supply Chain Projects.”

The world of supply chain is ever-evolving, becoming more complex seemingly by the day. To keep up with the volatility and the demand-driven needs of customers, supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations must be flexible enough to react to change but also visionary enough to prepare for the future.

This year the magazine focused the criteria for its “100” awards on supply chain transformation projects that met these responsibilities and achieved success.

“Our readers count on Supply & Demand Chain Executive for intelligence and decision-making information on solutions and best practices for supply chain transformation,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “With this year's Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, we are featuring ‘100 Great Supply Chain Projects’ that demonstrate the broad spectrum of opportunities for enabling excellence in the supply chain.”

Through an online submission process, Supply & Demand Chain Executive collected information on supply chain transformation projects, including information on the objectives, scope, timeline and results of the project. Its editorial staff evaluated submissions and chose winners primarily based on ambitiousness/scope of the project; creative application of technologies/solutions/services used; extent of the business results/impact; and clarity of submission.

“Our goal with this year's ‘100’ is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain,” added Hochfelder. “The projects featured in the '100' article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.”

After receiving nomination forms, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive editorial staff identified applicants that best fit the stated criteria for the “100.” Final recipients will be featured with more detail in the June 2013 print issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, as well as online at
