Illuminate Your Supply Chain: Achieve Predictability in Unpredictable Times

Is your supply chain planning effective? Planners are spending three quarters of their time ‘reacting’. The result is inefficient use of planners’ time and poorer outcomes as more issues become short term. A recent study found that, to tackle planning inadequacies, 62% of CXOs are planning to deploy or pilot artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) while 55% are planning on adopting a digital control tower for more visibility.

Using AI to predict demand during the pandemic

Demand variability is the biggest driver of supply-chain cost and complexity and that sell-out data is a key input to predicting demand better.  Daily POS data from 100s or 1000s of stores represents a veritable avalanche of data that quickly surpasses the ability of most humans to comprehend.  On the other hand, AI loves evaluating complex data sets to find insights that are useful. We’ll discuss the supply chain decisions that can be improved using AI to understand sales patterns better. 

Our supply chain virtual conference is free of charge to qualified invitees. Sessions are focused on the most pressing supply chain challenges manufacturers and retailers are facing today and over the next 18 months. Supply chain leaders should come with questions and stories about how they are using technology like AI and Machine Learning to make their operations more efficient and resilient.
