Arena’s Wenxiang Ma Named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 2017 ‘Pros to Know’

Now in its 16th year, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies’ supply chains for the significant challenges of today’s business climate.

Ma was named a 2017 Provider Pros to Know which recognizes individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia who have helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges.

Ma has been developing manufacturing supply chain solutions for nearly 20 years. He leads Arena’s engineering and security teams, and also defines Arena’s technology and architectural roadmap. Ma oversees and is responsible for the development and delivery of Arena’ cloud-based, outsourced manufacturing supply chain software that helps companies capture, control, collaborate and improve their product designs to ensure their global supply chains are making and delivering the right version of their product. He has created dozens of products that help manufacturers work with their supply chain, ranging from supplier build packages, collaboration, sourcing demand analysis, supplier quality and audits, business analytics and comprehensive quality closed-loop processes such as supplier non-conformance and corrective action/preventative action (CAPA).

“Supply chain management is an absolutely critical component in today’s fast-paced manufacturing market,” said Ma. “Our goal is and always has been to provide our customers with cutting-edge technologies that solve supply chain issues and enable transparency and collaboration between engineers, suppliers and even suppliers’ suppliers. We are very grateful to the editors of Supply & Demand Chain Executive for recognizing the impact our solutions have on supply chain management.”
