Webinar: An AI Guide: From Demand Planner to Supply Chain Hero in 1 Day

By Garvis - Apr 29, 2021 4:37:33 PM

The turn towards the new digital economy, boosted by COVID-19 and changing customer expectations, results in new complexities for downstream channel strategy, accelerated international expansion, shorter lead times and a broadened product portfolio. These pressures cause demand spikes, an increased longtail and a chronic bullwhip effect, making it increasingly challenging to accurately plan for the future.
Demand planners have the insights and experience to overcome these hurdles but are restricted by time and the limitations of their current tools and planning environments.
Piet Buyck, CEO at Garvis, will demonstrate how the latest technology and AI evolution can help planners overcome these challenges and become true supply chain heroes.

  4. Why the role of the planner in this transformation is crucial.
  5. How to make a simple, one-day transition to AI-supported planning without disrupting any current environments.
