About this Event
Supply chains grow in complexity every year. But modern supply chains aren’t just complex – they are also subject to a high degree of uncertainty. Customer demand can shift rapidly; facility throughput or transport capacity can be impacted by unexpected events; supply side disruptions are commonplace. Planning and operating these supply chains is not for the faint of heart.
Increasingly, operators are looking to algorithms and artificial intelligence to drive lower costs across different segments of the supply chain. But how do these algorithms behave in a highly uncertain environment? How should they be applied to balance cost reduction with overall supply chain resilience?
To put it more broadly: what are the opportunities and challenges associated with leveraging algorithms in our supply chains?
