How ChatGPT changes all rules of Supply Chain Planning

Speaker: Piet Buyck

Many people are fascinated by the capabilities of ChatGPT. It allows us to interact naturally with huge amounts of information and provides answers that are easily understood and readily applicable. It’s the iPhone moment all over again. Now imagine the possibilities if we combine this ease of interaction of ChatGPT with AI-driven insights that represent the relationships between the outside world and the impact on your supply chain. All information, relationships, and strategies would become available the moment they happen, all just a question away.

Piet will show real examples of how this approach will work. The journey starts with translating what is happening (customer behavior, market dynamics, and other events) and the insights of the knowledge worker into digital components and their relationships so that these can be understood by the organization.

Once these components & their relationships are captured, every person in the organization can understand these as they happen through the interaction with a ChatGPT interface, which translates the information in the form and function that are needed at the moment of the question. This interaction will be a transformational change comparable to the invention of the iPhone. All information will be readily available, and no training will be needed to interact with the application.

This is the closing piece of creating the digital enterprise, where the whole ecosystem becomes accessible and transparent, with an enhanced capability for interaction.

The importance of Collaborative Supply Chain Planning

Speaker: Sandeep Walia, Chief Transformation Officer

Whilst it sounds simple, product availability is often overlooked. And yet it plays a critical role in driving positive NPS scores, enhancing CX and enabling businesses to deliver a truly omnichannel experience.

Surprisingly, businesses across the board struggle to increase availability without increasing inventory, which is both costly and inefficient.

Join this session, where Slimstock’s Sandeep Walia will share road-tested, cutting-edge tactics that will enable you to

  • Leverage data to align your product portfolio with your customers’ needs
  • Optimise inventory levels to minimize unnecessary working capital expenditure
  • Drive sales by making the right product available at the right time via the right channels

Why Antifragile Supply Chains Love Disruption

Speaker: Ludovic Lezenven, Business Consultant

The presentation titled "Why Antifragile Supply Chains Love Disruption" will explore the concept of antifragility and how it can be applied to supply chain management. Participants will learn about the difference between robustness, resilience, and antifragility and how organizations can leverage disruption to their advantage by turning it into a competitive differentiator. By embracing multiple scenarios and testing approaches, supply chain organizations can not only survive but thrive in times of uncertainty and change.

As supply chain visibility is essential for achieving supply chain agility, running scenarios and automating operations enable organizations to respond quickly to disruptions and changes in demand. By monitoring operations in real-time and making informed decisions, organizations can optimize their supply chain processes and build a more antifragile organization.

We will also delve into specific solutions that can help organizations build efficiency and sustainability in their supply chains, including Digital Supply Chain Planning (DSCP), external collaboration with customers and suppliers through Supplier Relationship Management (SRM), Demand and Distribution (D&D), and Digital Commerce (DC), as well as Global Trade and Transportation Execution (GTTE). By adopting an antifragile approach and implementing these solutions, attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to create a competitive advantage from disruption and build a more resilient and agile supply chain organization.

Top 5 real-life Machine Learning use cases

Speaker: Sami Salminen, Director Integrated Demand Supply Planning

AI/Machine Learning has been in the hype curve for some time now. In the larger population, outside of SCM, novel use cases like generative AI/ML solutions ChatGPT for text and Midjourney for visuals have truly rocketed ML to daily discussions and media cycles, both in personal tiktoks and in professional life. 

Either of them is not very practical in SCM, but behind the hype scene, Machine Learning has become almost a must-have or at least something to always consider when doing Supply Chain Planning or any prediction-oriented supply chain analytics process. It could be as simple as predicting if this CRM opportunity will convert into an order (and thus I need to prepare materials and capacity for it), or it’s likely this delivery will be late and I need to react now and in longer term I need to have higher safety stock, or more complex cases like promotion forecasting or using unsupervised machine learning for pricing/costing planning. With modern tools, ML has become a "business analyst" tool similar to Excel, it is not a domain of IT or PhD Data Scientists anymore. Chainalytics can provide continuous Machine Learning - as - a - Service, one-time Studies and general consulting around AI/ML with a wide variety of proven use cases. Top-5 cases we have delivered are:

  1. Will this CRM opportunity convert into an order? (binary classification)
  2. Where do I need to have my rescue department resources located at any time (traditional statistics together with predictive ML models to understand the features driving house burns)
  3. What is the sales lift for this promotion next fall? (regression)
  4. Is this quality ok, are there scratches we should identify and stop from sending to customers? (multi classification)
  5. What should be today's pricing in this convenience store in this location for this new never-sold-before chocolate bar (unsupervised clustering)
