New-Supply Chain Special Session: The Next Generation Of Supply Chain Innovation–A New Business Road Map for the Supply Chain, Domestic and International

Tuesday, June 11

Part I – Panel Discussion, 1:30-3:40 pm
Part II – Workshop,  3:55-5:30 pm

This joint ANS-United Nuclear Industry Alliance session will discuss the need for U.S. suppliers to be more competitive, and outright successful, as the nuclear industry transitions into the next decade of new nuclear projects.

A modern business road map must be integrated into the “Next-Generation U.S. Supply Chain Process” for it to be successful.  This is imperative domestically with Utilities/Operators and emerging reactor technologies, and internationally as they compete to provide goods and services to global nuclear projects.

Engaged industry executives will share their perspectives on what is needed to improve collaboration and integration between Suppliers and Utilities/Operators.

Special focus will be dedicated to attendee and panelist interaction with a workshop to identify issues needing attention along with developing corresponding actions for a 2019-2020 Supply Chain Strategic and Tactical Working Plan.

Panel Topics

  • UNI: Who Are We, How Are We Different, and What’s Our End Objective and Plans to Improve U.S. Supplier Business Domestically and Internationally
  • International U.S. Supply Chain Challenges – First Hand Experience
  • U.S. Supply Chain Enhancement for Domestic and International Opportunities
