AI and Robotics Automation In Consumer-Driven Supply Chains
The linear models of many consumer goods supply chains are now shifting towards consumer-led, data-driven, highly complex supply networks. The consumer increasingly drives innovation from the heart of the network, demanding mass product customization, more accurate synchronization, and faster multichannel retail responsiveness.
Going far beyond the abilities of the typical workforce and infrastructure, these shifts require instant visibility, quick decision making and increased flexibility. Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics automation have the potential to overcome these challenges and revolutionize consumer goods supply chains. For organizations willing to embrace this inevitable evolution, AI and robotics automation will enable innovation, ensure optimum service levels, and deliver growth at low cost. It will become a major source of competitive advantage.
