The supply chain has changed dramatically since the recession, making the same old way of doing things no longer good enough. It’s no secret that in the past few years, many builders have been pushed to take a hard look at themselves, and those examinations have led to new efficiencies that are helping them cope with today's realities.

In this special report, BIG BUILDER presents five thought leaders who are on the cutting edge of a new way of thinking about how products are ordered, tracked, delivered, and installed in homes across the country. From purchasing directors at some of the biggest builders in the country to a computer science expert focused on the supply chain’s worst pain points, these innovators have come up with new ways to solve some of the industry’s most pressing issues. Their ideas could work for your company, too.
