Recently Smart Industry, an information resource on the digital transformation of manufacturing and related industries, interviewed Rosemary Coates and Sarah Rathke on technology’s impact on supply chain disputes. Rosemary and Sarah provide insight into how technology can provide support, transparency, and traceability of data but can also be used against companies in data breaches and legal disputes. Manufacturers need to be aware of what data is being recorded as any information collected has the potential to become fair game in litigation. The interview also discusses some of the common causes of supply chain disputes and the technological developments that are impacting it.
Rosemary Coates and Sarah Rathke are co-authors of “Legal Blacksmith: How to Avoid and Defend Supply Chain Disputes.”
