Today’s supply chains are undergoing a digital transformation into more data-driven, cloud-based processes. Yet, many familiar obstacles remain: Improving visibility across siloed systems, leveraging better fulfillment and delivery processes for meeting customer demands, and creating a more sustainable supply chain—from reducing waste or using materials better, to ethically sourcing goods and services. Addressing these supply chain challenges begins with having the proper visibility and partner connectivity to digitize your network, integrate your systems, and break down silos.
Technology has evolved to where it can facilitate enhanced information sharing between members of the supply chain ecosystem, as well as allow organizations to effectively synthesize and interpret that information for improved decision-making. Modern platforms, such as the cloud—as well as modern tools, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT)—empower supply chain organizations to evaluate and implement decisions that drive the best possible outcomes. A digitally transformed supply chain is one that has not only adopted modern technology tools but is also data-driven – leveraging predictive and prescriptive analytics for optimal decision-making.
The MDTC is ready to help your organization begin their digital transformation with tools that can intelligently sense and respond to changing supply chain needs in competitive marketplaces, while also integrating data, processes, systems, and visibility across sourcing, warehouse, and distribution operations— from end to end.

Defense Cyber Manufacturing
Defense contractors are aware of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), which mandates that Department of Defense (DoD) contractors adopt cybersecurity standards that follow the NIST SP 800-171 cybersecurity framework. Due to slow adoption of the standards, the DoD has released the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to ensure that the standards are being assessed properly and are adequate for addressing security requirements throughout the defense supply chain.
This means that CMMC will be a requirement for any company doing business with the DoD, as a prime contractor or lower-tier subcontractor. The key difference is that while DFARS 7012 allowed contractors to self-attest to NIST SP 800-171 compliance after winning a contract, CMMC requires them to be certified before the contract is awarded. With CMMC, contractors must be audited and certified before they can bid on RFPs. With five possible maturity levels, the CMMC is intended to safeguard Federal Contract Information (FCI) at Level 1, progress to protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) at Level 3 and reduce the risk of Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) to national security at Level 5.
