May 17, 2016 — Gartner, Inc. has announced the winners of the 2016 Supply Chainnovator Awards. The awards recognize innovative and high-impact supply chain initiatives in the high-tech manufacturing sector. The winners are as follows:

High-Tech Manufacturing Supply Chainnovators:

OEM: Cisco— Adaptive Test provides an automated, tailored, real-time test for individual products as they are tested on the manufacturing floor. Adaptive Test leverages production test data from Cisco's internal test processes, coupled with test data from global suppliers to optimize product quality and cost over the product's life cycle.

EMS: Jabil— Jabil InControl can pinpoint areas for concern, risk and opportunity coupled with real-time predictive modeling to improve collaborative decision making, proactively protect against supply chain disruption, optimize the flexibility of their manufacturing and distribution footprint, and minimize total landed cost.

Through the Supply Chainnovator awards program, Gartner recognizes supply chain innovation and impact delivered by supply chain organizations. These innovations must meet the threshold of being impactful, sustainable, unconventional, collaborative and measurable. Participants must be willing to share with the broader supply chain community lessons learned and how results were achieved. The goal is to recognize innovative approaches to supply chain excellence that result in a step change in business performance. The winners were selected by a panel of judges that consisted of Gartner analysts.

"Companies recognized as Chainnovators have been successful with unconventional, innovative and/or high-impact approaches that peer leaders can learn from and emulate," said Mark Atwood, managing vice president at Gartner. "Supply chain leaders should look at the case studies as valuable insight for strategic planning, resource allocation and investment cycles."
