Technology “Fixer Upper” for Supply Chain Planning

March 11th, 2016

Today’s “need-it-now” expectations have rendered traditional methods for supply chain planning inefficient. Shipments are still tracked on a point-by-point basis lacking a real-time view of assets, and estimated time of arrivals (ETAs) are calculated using limited information that doesn’t take into account historical patterns of disruption, such as traffic, weather, and poor driver behavior. For

How Analytics Are Changing the Potential of Sensors

February 26th, 2016

Sensors have been used in the supply chain for a long time. There are millions of sensor types designed for narrow, singular purposes, such as sending point-in-time messages regarding position/location, light, temperature, humidity, shock/vibration, pressure, electrical fields, etc. There are no standards and many different data formats and protocols with little interoperability. They have memory

Three Capabilities for a More Resilient Supply Chain

February 18th, 2016

Sensor data and IoT technologies are helping to create more resilient supply chains with real-time monitoring, accurate estimated time of arrivals (ETA), and geofencing capabilities. Through the connectivity that IoT affords, assets equipped with sensors are able to transmit data that can be analyzed and leveraged to make decisions in real-time. The result is a
