Companies adopting an intelligent operations strategy to manage their supply chains will be in the best position to succeed in the future — if they have the right talent.
After a wild week in global financial markets, stock prices struggled at times on Friday to get a firm footing. Analysts suggest that we might be in for more volatility than we have become accustomed to, and we have certainly seen that in recent trading days. Still, one could easily make the case that a correction was overdue.

The goal of these X-ray studies is to find ways to improve 3D-printed metal parts for the aerospace, aircraft, automotive and healthcare industries.
When 3D printing first became commercially available in the 1980s, it's unlikely that its early adopters could have imagined the scope and scale of what this technology can accomplish today. The 3D printing industry reportedly will be worth nearly $33 billion USD by 2023, and the possibilities are seemingly endless.
U.S. defense contractor General Dynamics said on Monday it would buy smaller rival CSRA for about $6.8 billion to expand its information technology unit, which provides services to the U.S. Department of Defense.
