All enterprises and their customers are interconnected in a fast-changing world. Covid measures and climate change have made it clear that local situations can have a direct, global impact on this value chain.
Demand Planners have the insights and experience to deal with change, but they don’t have the time and are restricted by the limitations of their tools and planning environment. Their systems are unable to use external information and understand the rapid changes. Current statistical methods to predict the future lack data and sophistication.
Transparent AI, where the planner stays in control of both the implementation and the actual AI decision process, can help. But what is the business case? And why is ‘Bionication’ the answer, to trigger a paradigm shift in how planners and companies manage their inventory?
In this 30min webinar, Garvis' CEO Piet Buyck will talk about the different ways in which AI can bring value to the planning process backed with real-life examples from different organizations.
