Practical Steps to Getting Started with Supply Chain AI

Practical Steps to Getting Started with Supply Chain AI
April 25, 2018 @ 2:00 p.m. EDT (11:00 a.m. PDT)

As more and more companies explore what AI brings to their supply chain processes, firms in pharmaceuticals, consumer packaged goods, manufacturing and other industries are looking to move beyond relatively simplistic tools built on static business rules that inhibit the ability to optimize and scale. Innovative organizations are applying artificial intelligence and machine learning against vast data sets of supply chain data to unearth insights into problems and performance that are effectively beyond the reach of even the most skilled planning professionals. A common question we hear: “How do we get started?”
In this webinar, we’ll outline 3 practical steps on how you can:

    • Identify and target a specific problem within your supply chain
    • Build up your organizations’ AI readiness
    • Partner internally and externally with vendors

Learn how to use blockchain today in your supply chain

Learn How to Use Blockchain Today in Your Supply Chain
May 2, 2018 @ 1:00 p.m. EDT

You’ve no doubt read the excitement about blockchain in supply chain, but what can you do now? Today’s supply chain is increasingly dependent on a decentralized model for its information exchanges. Whether its inter-enterprise order management, multi-tier supplier interactions, or intra-company exchanges, most companies struggle with getting access to and effectively using enterprise information resulting in a lack of visibility, trust, and misalignment which means business performance suffers. Leading blockchain application environments focus on enabling secure, access controlled, collaborative exchanges between multiple parties in a secure, trusted environment. During this webinar, you will learn about the requirements for an effective supply chain blockchain application environment which can digitally transform intra- and inter-enterprise data exchanges making them trusted, verified, and irrefutable enabling more reliable and confident data exchanges, faster business cycles, and lower costs.

Supplier Performance-The Journey of Becoming First

Supplier Performance: The Journey of Becoming First
Using Supplier Insights to Improve Performance
May 3, 2018 @ 1:00 p.m. EDT

While MRP (Manufacturing Resource Planning) is necessary for procurement transactional management, alone, it is not sufficient. Problems that manufacturers are facing today include:

  • Sorting through heaps of data provided by ERP and BI systems, throttling the ability for managers to make decisions about their area of the business
  • Inability to identify specific and actionable insights despite large-scale ERP implementations
  • Difficulty tracking progress on actions taken, in real time, that directly impact the performance of a specific site, or group of manufacturing sites
  • Overflow of ERP system-generated alerts, which overwhelm those tasked with making improvements, and bog down prioritization
  • Labor-intensive work invested in creation of insufficient reports which get stale quickly, lack visibility among stakeholders, and are not the single point of truth across the supply chain

Join this webinar and hear how Scott Spencer from Safron-Zodiac Aerospace leverages advanced data analytics from LeanDNA to transform their supply chain, including:

  • Prioritization of the most valuable inventory opportunities and assigning tasks to the team that are simple to action and track
  • Standardization of best practice dashboards deployed across the company in a consistent manner
  • Collaborating between buyers, analysts, and suppliers to reduce shortages
  • Optimizing order policies to help reduce inventory and improve on-time delivery performance
  • Driving accountability using daily supply chain metrics
  • Accurately setting inventory targets, predict future inventory levels, diagnose key inventory drivers that will reduce excess inventory, and trigger prioritized improvement actions for buyers and planners
