SC Planning Moves Beyond the 'Black Box'

New supply chain planning and optimization solutions use more real-time data and more flexible simulation capabilities to go beyond traditional "black box" optimization engines, says Noha Tohamy, research director at AMR Research. This enables shorter planning cycles and better response to variable demand. Companies also are using this optimization technology to improve planning in the areas of network design, risk management and sustainability. [Run Time (Min): 8:49]
