Supply chain radar: When demand and supply collide
Here we go
Logistics operators may need to consider Asimov’s three laws of robotics in the near future, as machine-learning becomes increasingly used. This piece from Raconteur suggests companies are already turning to cognitive supply chains. From Maersk to GSK, Jaguar Land Rover and Tesco, there has been more and more deployment of distribution and inventory management systems that are self-learning, predictive, adaptive and intelligent – what this report describes as “cognitive”. From running “what if” scenarios to tailoring solutions, AI is seen as a massive benefit and, it appears, at a smaller cost than expected.
