Human supply-chain problems? AI might have the answer

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to push the world into uncharted territory, an automation boom is either already happening or ready to start, reports SourceToday.

“The automation that’s been under development for years—and the connected systems that bring everything onto a single network—are in hot demand right now. With 2020 bringing with it a global pandemic that’s driven new social distancing rules, the push to get work done with fewer human employees (at least until the danger passes and things return to normal) is growing.”

Artificial intelligence (AI) is at the forefront of automation discussions, heralded as the solution to mitigating risk against future problems – like a pandemic-type scenario.

This article appearing in JDSupra.com makes the case for AI-based supply chain risk management, saying that AI tools can help businesses anticipate potential risks and create reactive plans. “An AI-based assessment of suppliers can help companies seek alternative, reliable partners and reroute deliveries during crises. A company with a deeper insight into its supply chain mechanisms may be better equipped to manage potential risks and opportunities than companies without such insight,” it says.
