ETA Supply Chain

Technology “Fixer Upper” for Supply Chain Planning

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

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…
