Supply Chain Design Strategies

Forward-thinking businesses are continuously redesigning and improving their supply chains by using modelling technology to examine how their supply chains will perform under a wide range of market conditions and assumptions and analysing the trade-offs of cost, service and risk. Needless to say, it is the “design” of a supply chain that brings the maximum benefit across key metrics like cost, service, sustainability and risk.

1155 – 1220

Supply Chain Optimization: Planning and Maximising Segmented Supply Chains

Parametric supply chains (ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL!) are becoming a necessity in today’s rapidly changing retail climate, but what usually gets overlooked is the immense effort required to operationalize these segmented supply chains, including differentiated sourcing models. Many companies miss the end to end impact of trying to move to a differentiated or segmented supply chain model. What is the best practice in developing multi product, multi geography supply chains.

1220 – 1245

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. Asset tracking is not new by any means. Freight and shipping companies have used barcode scanners to track and manage their inventory. But new developments are making these scanners obsolete, as they 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.

1625 – 1650

Transport Spend Optimization

Transportation and shipping costs represent one of the largest spend categories for companies. Sourcing and managing this category is very complex for many reasons, including effectively managing various modes of transportation, inbound shipments from suppliers, outbound to customers, ongoing volatility in fuel costs and a dynamic supplier base, to name a few.

How To Slash Inventory Using Signal Processing & Machine Learning

Forecasting the number of items in inventory is an important factor in reducing direct and indirect inventory carrying cost and reducing stockouts. This problem can be considered as a time series forecasting problem and as such many of us try to solve it using time series techniques. But due to the complexity and number of parameters, neither time series modelling nor deep learning models are able to provide decent forecast accuracy. An elegant approach to this complex problem is the use of signal processing, specifically wavelet transformations.
