Supply-chain planners can’t make sense of the chaos of data that’s available to them today, without the aid of artificial intelligence.
The amount of information on consumer and market demand continues to increase exponentially, with the rise of big data, the internet of things and social media. How are supply chains supposed to harness all this data, and translate it into effective demand plans? Enter AI, with its ability to process more relevant input than is humanly possible. But the technology isn’t stopping there. Increasingly, AI is evolving from a tool that merely gathers and describes data to one that can diagnose, predict and prescribe the proper action. On this episode, we take a look at the maturation of AI and its implications for human planners, with the help of Karin Bursa, Executive Vice President of Logility. She explains how AI can help companies to approach the ultimate goal of continuous supply-chain planning. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
