Welcome to “Supply Chain Planning 2020” [QPS]

Manufacturing companies today are operating in a new world dealing with challenges of constant changes in geopolitics, exponential speed of innovation and the digitization of everything, more demanding and less committed customers, and ever changing supply chains that are no longer chains but a network of opportunistic demand, supply, and capacity entities. How does a company make their supply chain ready for 2020? In this presentation we will discuss current major events impacting global supply networks and the strategies and technologies that may be adopted to not just survive, but thrive in 2020.

The Next Generation of Demand Planning: Intelligent and Real-Time [QPS]

Modern day planners are bombarded with large volumes of both historical and real time data. Planning systems must rapidly identify trends, exclude outliers, and turn data exceptions into actionable insights, which is why Supply Chain Planning is a natural candidate for machine learning. Thanks to the IoT there is more real-time data providing visibility of the short-term horizon. In this presentation we will discuss how machine learning and demand sensing change the demand planning game.
