Supply Chain Management

How Is External Data Used in Supply Chain Management?

AI in supply chain management depends on road quality, distribution centers, weather, and the capabilities of suppliers and third parties. Monitoring and updating these data sources is therefore crucial for any operation.

Additional data includes foot and store traffic, future events, and competitor analysis. Competitor analysis, in particular, impacts product demand, forecasting, and new technologies that a company may consider utilizing themselves.

How are Machine Learning Models Used in Supply Chain Management?

Machine learning models can develop and run algorithms that predict product needs by individual stores and the best traffic routes. However, they do not limit themselves to making predictions; they can also analyze spending and vehicle status in order to reduce fuel and repair costs.
