Top Story
Attracting and recruiting the talent needed to run the digital supply chain has become one of the top priorities of many chief executives and chief supply chain officers (CSCOs). With the most heavily recruited of that talent being Millennials (and the subsequent Gen Z following close behind), supply chain organizations find themselves competing for the best and brightest—particularly among data scientists and analysts—against big-name tech companies. The question is, how can companies with less cachet—and hiring in a field not widely perceived as being as “tech-y” or “cool” as it actually is—win the recruiting war for these highly desirable staffers?

As part of MHI view's ongoing video program, this new episode focuses on 4D Printing.

3D printing has now become a feasible option for manufacturing replacement parts in-house and customizing mass-manufactured goods. But what is the next step? For the past several years, a new application has been researched and has the potential to revolutionize the manufacturing industry again.—At the 2019 MHI Annual Conference in Palm Springs, CA, MHI Industry Groups appointed new chairs and vice chairs. The new Chairs and Vice Chairs were elected by members of each Industry Group by way of vote during their groups’ Annual Membership Meetings. The new Chair and Vice Chair terms will kick off with Chair Training in January 2020, followed by a Strategic Planning Meeting, led by MHI’s Industry Group staff.
