Supply chain operations and services have undergone a sea of change in the 21st century. Operators are now incorporating innovative products and processes in supply chain management to manage customer demands as they shape according to market changes. But, it is the advent and adoption of the latest technologies that are proving to be highly beneficial in the supply chain services. Drones, robotic process automation, and artificial intelligence (AI) are gradually transforming the warehousing and transportation facilities, thereby improving the way products are stored and delivered to consumers.
Today, supply chain services are majorly driven by data and information. Firms that lack the ability to accurately track data and extract valuable insight from that information often get trapped in the conventional manners of managing supply chain operations. Adopting data management techniques, analyzing and structuring that data to capture the right information would help supply chain operators in minimizing redundancy and inconsistency in handling inventory, warehouse, and product delivery.
Inventory management and control is another aspect of a supply chain that is demanding automation and integrations. With omnichannel retailing reserved at the top of the game, brands are now incorporating solid inventory control plans for sales that are coming through multiple channels.
Along the path of innovative practices, the future will see organizations leveraging a slew of newly available solutions to “turn on” their supply chains—making them business-aware and able to predict outcomes and prescribe actions autonomously. In the coming years, these advancements will continue to evolve to make the entire supply chain autonomous.
