Date & Time
Thursday, October 22, 2020, 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM
Mac McGary

Unexpected events – pandemics, recessions, extreme weather events and more – are inevitable. How can you best protect your organization from supply chain disruptions?

Resilient planning can help by optimizing your supply chain now to better prepare your business for the future. In this session you will learn how to:

  • Create a strong foundation for modeling the unexpected, including using a Digital Twin to consider the impact of changes on business goals and customer service levels before you take action
  • Make the best decisions quickly when the worst-case scenario occurs, and anticipate spikes or drops in demand using machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) that includes robust demand sensing. You will also hear real-world examples of how companies are doing these things now to prepare and strengthen their supply chains for future disruptions.
