CONGRATULATIONS TO CATERPILLAR, WINNER OF THE 2016 ANNY!

Caterpillar’s Global Supply Network team won the award for its supply network optimization project – the Assurance of Supply Center (ASC), a platform developed internally by the company and first launched four years ago. The data analytics and visualization platform solves issues of outdated processes, data unavailability and network complexity. It collects supply network data and transforms it into powerful tools used to drive decisions.

"Caterpillar’s supply network optimization project is a shining example of how analytics can provide critical insights and make processes more efficient. Congratulations to Caterpillar for creating such an innovative and successful analytics strategy."

Jack Phillips, IIA CEO and Co-Founder
