Supply chains need to get smarter.
It has always taken smart people to run supply chains, but given the complexities and disruptions of the modern-day world, are they smart enough?
There’s a pressing need today for automation, in the form of “decision intelligence.” Helping us understand the meaning of that term is Fred Laluyaux, president and chief executive officer of Aera Technology. He explains why it’s so crucial to “augment and automate” the decision-making process, so that supply chains can react “better, faster and smarter” to unanticipated crises and market shifts. Companies can even make decisions and connections between functions that weren’t possible before. Humans, meanwhile, can cede “dull work” to machines, concentrating on higher-level tasks. Hosted by Bob Bowman, editor-in-chief of SupplyChainBrain.
