How Cisco Systems Uses Tableau to Identify Supply Chain Network Opportunities

Working with over 14,000 items Tableau is used in a number of ways at Cisco: to evaluate Product Demand Variability, align distribution centers with customers, evaluate the location and spend within the supply chain and illustrate the flow of goods through the SC network. This session will focus on the Supply Chain department's use of Tableau, particularly in the balancing of a complex network of suppliers to the end customer in order to manage inventory and reduce the order-to-ship cycle.
