The Future of Supply Chain Transformation—Digitization, Analytics, and Automation to Drive a Customer-centric Supply Chain
Technology adoption within the consumer and retail supply chains has accelerated over the past few years, with a combination of digitization, automation, and analytics infusing traditional supply chain approaches and decision-making processes. In this talk, Manik will explore the deployment of the Internet of Things, the use of Advanced Robotics, and the application of Advanced Analytics and Big Data in supply chain management. The potential to transform operations is significant, from placing sensors to monitor the physical flow of goods, to automating transactional activities, and to leveraging warehousing automation selectively—all with the intent of delighting our customer, while driving total enterprise value.
