Production-to-Supply increases the availability of materials while at the same time reducing inventories and minimizing efforts and costs.

It’ s nothing new that considerations of optimization focus on excessive inventories and overly high planning or disposition costs. This is all the more true in tougher economic times.

This is where the new opportunities of digitization come in: the continuous provision of data from supplier production to transport logistics and even in-house intralogistics is no longer a vision of the future. Even minimizing process costs is now a reality thanks to automation. Read more

Matching themes: analytics, data lake, Inbound Supply Chain, SCPM, smart logistics data, Smart Supply Chain

Smart Logistics Data enables a change of perspective to look ahead instead of backwards
Smart Logistics Data enables a change of perspective to look ahead instead of backwards

A supply chain has to be agile, robust and resilient. Capable of anticipating potential risks and responding in advance, detecting problems early on and flexibly circumventing them.

All this requires the intelligent use of data. But how can we really make data “smart”? Read more
