Keynote Address: Understanding high value, complex supply chains
The global environment for manufacturing is being driven by a number of structural and cyclical changes that are changing the outlook and basis of competition. Prof Roos is leading the development of South Australia’s manufacturing strategy that will emphasise high value adding and innovation as key attributes companies need to embrace to be competitive. Professor Roos has highlighted the need to grow the manufacturing and resources sectors together but warns to do this successfully will require companies to examine their business models and competitive positions.

Stream 2: Understanding the requirements of the supply chain
A challenge for South Australia and for individual companies is knowing how supply chains work and what is required to successfully break into them. The panellists in this session will provide practical information on business models and approaches to effectively participate. It is also essential for any company no matter what tier to consider Australian Cultural Heritage issues when designing their solution. ACHM will share best practice in this area.
