Three reasons why Data Scientists are the superheroes of the supply chain »



I realized I wasn’t really sure what a Data Scientist does. So I asked, Jim Hayden, SVP Data Science this question. He explained how he uses his technology background, Internet of Things platform, and subject matter expertise in supply chains. The more complex our global supply chain networks become, the more we will need to […]

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 […]

Better Supply Chain Planning with ETA »



The current challenge for any supply chain is to be faster and more transparent than ever before, while continuing to remain profitable and productive. True visibility across the supply chain plays a major factor in optimizing performance, namely because true visibility doesn’t just show dots on a map, but it provides insight into less visible […]
