OTTAWA, March 22 /PRNewswire/ - Kinaxis, provider of the on-demand supply chain management (SCM) and sales and operations planning (S&OP) software service, RapidResponse™, today announced that Trevor Miles, director of thought leadership, will be presenting at the Manufacturing Supply Chain Officer Summit taking place March 31-April 1 in Shanghai, China.

Event Details:
The Manufacturing Supply Chain Officer Summit (MSCO2011) brings together an elite group of supply chain executives from industry-leading companies. This year's theme is how to drive supply chain transformation through alignment and collaboration. 

Trevor Miles will be presenting the session, "Do you trust yourself to collaborate?"

Collaboration can bring tremendous value to outsourced supply chains, such as we see in electronics and apparel. But what is collaboration? All too often collaboration is viewed in the context of exchanging data. Visibility to data is important, but collaboration is ultimately about teams of people working together to achieve a shared objective. The potential value of collaboration in the supply chain is enormous in terms of both reduced inventory and increased supply chain agility, not to mention the reduced cost of "policing" supply chain relationships. Visibility is a start. Collaboration is the goal.
