Implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) in your supply chain or manufacturing operations can bring numerous benefits to your business. By leveraging AI tools, you can streamline your operations, improve efficiency, and reduce costs. But where do you start?
Dean Hettenbach, GaMEP project manager, believes one of the simplest ways for manufacturers to implement artificial intelligence is by starting with sales and operations planning. In his recent article in IndustryWeek, he shares how you can achieve many of the benefits of AI in supply chain, by using tools you may already have available.
Many customer relationship management (CRM) providers and other software programs already offer AI tools that can seamlessly integrate with your existing systems. Additionally, your current ERP or MRP systems provider might have AI functionality that you can tap into.
The good news is that technology costs are decreasing, making it more accessible for manufacturers of all sizes and in all industries. By embracing AI in supply chain optimization, you can overcome various challenges that you may face in the coming years, including replacing institutional knowledge of key personnel, as the Baby Boomers exit the workforce. This way, you can enhance your competitive abilities and stay ahead in the market.
