How AI & Deep Learning can help in Supply Chain Decision Making

Artificial Intelligence is a buzzword that has taken the market by storm. But what exactly is AI? And how can it help the supply chain industry? This session discusses the use of AI in decision making for supply chain managers, the need for automation in the industry and the key metrics to track while making business decisions.

Supply Chain Innovation, Analytics and Big Data for leveraging technology

New technologies have the potential to create an accelerated business value through a network approach. Mobility, Big Data and Common Platforms are the 3 big trends for the extended Supply Chain for the next 5 years but others will follow soon or will impact individual Supply Chain processes. Companies need to understand the implications on their supply chains and trigger value based innovation.

As manufacturing companies become increasingly complex and begin leveraging more data, the role of advanced analytics in business planning processes is slowly becoming a necessity. Gartner’s 2016 CEO Survey shows that 54% of CEOs claimed that their top strategic priority for the year was business growth. One of the key tools is an efficient supply chain that can ensure decisions are bolstered with advanced analytics which provide and predictive and prescriptive insights.

The future of the future … belongs to intelligent networked companies

Total network orchestration is the highest and most sophisticated state a global supply chain can attain. Networked companies win because they’re agile, fast, and efficient. They’re the first to sense and the first to respond to events, the right way. That’s operational excellence.

The networked supply chain combines advanced and intelligent supply chain planning, execution, and finance capabilities with the global commerce network so companies achieve the velocity and control needed to compete in today’s rapidly-evolving markets. Intelligent supply chain applications automate key processes from planning, through execution, to final settlement. Advanced algorithms, optimization engines, and machine learning turn data, from across the value chain, into actionable insights and prescribe better decisions. Integrated execution allows users to easily turn plans into action.

For anyone who enjoys being scared and excited at the same time, AI is shaping up to be the roller coaster of choice for some years to come. Parsing what is real and what is not—what is cool for the sake of being cool versus what can offer genuine business benefit—will take some time. However, executives will be wise to “watch this space” and look for partners equipped to turn the AI vision into reality. As the saying goes, just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there.

IoT and Mobile applications for enhanced Supply Chain visibility

One of the biggest trends poised to change supply chain management is asset tracking, which gives companies a way to totally overhaul their supply chain and logistics operations by giving them the tools to make better decisions and save time and money. New developments are making the traditional scanners obsolete, as the can only collect data on broad types of items, rather than the location or condition of specific items. Similarly, IoT will impact warehousing, fleet management, inventory operations in significant ways

Panel Discussion : FMCG & Retail - Integrating Supply Chain capabilities - Needs & Challenges

The numerous retail formats pose a challenging integration approach to the FMCG players.

Intense competition and conflicting interests prevent a Win-Win solution to emerge. Identifying common goals and addressing them in the integrated approach is the way for profitability for both sectors.

Operational Excellence in FMCG

Sourcing, Manufacturing and Distribution in FMCG need to work in consonance to provide superior customer satisfaction. Inventory misalignment at any stage impacts the other stages and deteriorates customer experience. Forecasting errors lead to excess and shortages across places and time-lines. The only solution is to get out of Silo-working and have a holistic approach for customer satisfaction and growth.

Panel Discussion: Challenges in implementing pull-based replenishment system

What new tools are available which can help to improve inventory planning and reduce stock availability issues in today’s demand-driven supply chain? Insights into maintaining the right availability for the customer, without simply throwing stock as the problem

Untethered Orchestration of the Digital Supplychain

In a Supply chain landscape where half of the conference topics now pivot on IoT, Digitalization, AI, Machine Learning, Smart Factory, Intelligent Warehousing, and most definitely Blockchain, it is a harsh reality that about half the players still struggle to implement or migrate their ERP systems. It would be remiss not to propose and discuss a fresh approach that could tie all the data points together. Ultimately, the factories, warehouses, robots, computers and people will need to interact (not just interface) harmoniously. In this session, we will review a new approach to leverage the entire digital ecosystem – untethered to any specific technology provider – that will enable the end-to-end orchestration of all Supply Chain activities and events.

Danny Halim, Vice President, Distribution & 3PL Strategy, JDA Software

Panel Discussion: The journey to profitability in Retail Chains : from Red to Green

Given the huge variety of competition in every retail format, the customer is always the ultimate king. First driving the footfalls, and then converting them to consumer buying remains a perpetual challenge. Differentiation, segmentation, service edge, correct pricing, correct format and product mix, inventory pressures, marketing and controlling operating expenses , while eyeing for organic and inorganic growth – achieving the right balance determines whether the business truns to red or goes on the green path of profitability and stability

Leveraging Smart Warehousing to Increase Supply Chain Efficiencies : IoT, Robots and Automation

What is driving the adoption of smart warehousing? Consumer expectations. Today’s consumer expects immediate gratification. They want to point, click and receive their orders in days or sometimes hours.

IoT devices help to reduce the use of manual labor, incidence of errors and increase the speed of processing goods.

Autonomous mobile robots often referred to as AMR can move independently and utilize sensors and cameras for help with navigation. Different from Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), AMR do not operate on a fixed path. AMR sense and perceive their environment, find their specific position within it, analyze and then execute movement. AMR are most frequently used to move or handle product within the warehouse.

Jhordan Gil, Solutions Advisor, JDA Software

Inventory Management & Supply Chain – A Pharma-centric view

The pharmaceutical supply chain is one of the most complex supply chains in the world. That’s no surprise when you consider the global nature of the industry and the size and scope of the companies that dominate the space. But it is also notoriously unwieldy and has historically been resistant to transformation.

With the rise of generics, increasing volume of prescriptions,and with the rise of cold chain logistics alongwith marked slow-down in mergers & acquisitions, the major transformations in this industry expected are : a push into emerging markets for growth, shift towards global inventory management and the unlocking of Ai, Big Data and Cloud tecniques.

Panel Discussion: Indonesia as an emerging exporter in FMCG : leveraging SCM for capturing markets

Most of Indonesia’s success is largely homegrown. Meaning, domestic consumption (roughly 60%) has enabled Indonesia to grow faster than its neighbors, such as Singapore, whose economy is more dependent on import/export trade and therefore more vulnerable to slowing export demand.

Indonesian exports are worth about 25% of the country’s economy. With superior strategies in SCM, Indonesia can become a major exporter of its unique products.
