Procurement and Supply Chain Management for Utilities 2018

Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 2018


Procurement and Supply Chain Management (PSCM) has encountered considerable evolution in the past few decades and is now recognized as one of the key departments in any utility’s operations. Utilities continuously keep reviewing the effectiveness of their PSCM and improving its efficiency. Establishing the most efficient and cost-effective supply chain strategies is an enduring effort, but considering the ongoing turbulent environment in which utilities operate, it becomes imperative to continue to re-define excellence. Moreover, the field of supply chains for utilities is not standing still as innovative technologies, digitalization and automation are dramatically impacting the supply chain processes.

While some utility operators and contractors are leading the way on managing lean, efficient, smooth-running PSCM, many others still have substantial savings and efficiencies to seize, particularly when looking at diverse needs for different states/regions in which each utility operates. The event will serve as an excellent platform for experts to share their PSCM challenges & strategies and learn from best practices from the industry peers.
