Architectural, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) Forum - 181211

The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.

Presentation

Last year the Material Handling Institute (MHI) released The Material Handling & Logistics US Roadmap 2.0. This report, which predicts how supply chains will evolve between now and the year 2030, is the result of a comprehensive, seven-month study involving more than 200 supply chain-industry thought leaders.

Steve Hopper was one of the Roadmap's participants and roundtable leaders, as well as a researcher and a co-author of the final report, which covers four fundamental aspects of supply chains: technology, the consumer, the workforce, and logistics infrastructure.

In this presentation, Steve will summarize the study's findings and offer specific recommendations on how supply chain-dependent businesses can prepare to meet the significant changes and challenges they will face on the road to 2030.
