HOW TECHNOLOGY (AND AI IN PARTICULAR) IS TRANSFORMING S&OP PROCESSES

Part 1: How AI is enabling NOT displacing S&OP professionals

 

 

DESCRIPTION

There’s a fear across almost all knowledge-based industries that AI will disrupt and displace great swathes of the workforce and it’s a threat however, in our experience that’s just not the case. Rather than being a threat AI is turning out to be a great enabler in the world of Supply Chain – giving professionals the information and insights they need to operate in today’s complex retail environments.

In this webinar we’ll explain why S&OP has landed where it has and explain why organisations don’t need to redesign their business processes to take advantage of AI. We’ll talk about the role of AI-powered bottom-up SKU location forecasting and the transformative effect it can have on organisations that let the data underpin their current S&OP processes.
