Can Standardization and Customization Co-exist?

When selecting enabling software for supply chain scheduling and planning there are typically two competing forces:  On one hand there is a strong push for standardization, typically driven by the IT organization. On the other hand there is an equally strong need for flexibility and targeted solutions that capture the unique aspects and requirements of your business and manufacturing environment.  Can you have your cake and eat it too?  In the attached presentation I discuss Profit Point’s approach to implementing and supporting supply chain technology.  This is a presentation I delivered at Aspen Optimize 2017 conference so it specifically includes how to  use Aspen Supply Chain Suite (SCM) to leverage the unique capabilities of Aspen SCM to provide enabling tools for scheduling (and planning) that find a good balance  between standardization and customization and have enabled large manufacturers to roll out and support dozens of models over 20 years.
