OI uses AI to shape resilient optimal end-to-end supply chains, measures impact and improves performance continually in real time whilst tracking benefit. In doing so, it answers questions, such as:
Orchestrated Intelligence finds patterns across the E2E supply chain listening to the data, modelling the right set up and through that automating the business. OI doesn’t replace the need for planners, but it automates complex processes and brings an immediacy to the availability of key information to drive better decision making.
Orchestrated Intelligence ensures that the best supply chain configuration across multiple dimensions is identified and maintained. As variables such as sales patterns, supply lead times and production reliability fluctuate the model continually readjusts identifying and predicting new patterns and trends in the data and modelling the optimal response. This means that the planning process is constantly self learning and fine tuning giving leaders the confidence that the supply chain is always optimal for the current profile of variability. The model monitors both current and future changes acting like a central nervous system as it orchestrates the response to fluctuating activity in the chain.
Orchestrated Intelligence AI/ ML capability models variability and risk across the end to end supply chain and builds proactive response strategies in real-time. Responding continually to new variability ensures that the balance between service and cost is always correct for the business. By ensuring we have the right network design service levels are improved whilst costs are reduced. By monitoring critical data points and trends in the information the capability ensures current and future issues are proactively managed.
Orchestrated Intelligence links supply chain cost to configuration and dynamically simulates all the potential set up options to determine the best mix to meet the service goal. It compares a multitude of potential set ups, their probability and underlying cost implications. In modelling the optimal set up OI sustains peak network performance and enables significant cost reduction. It makes the trade offs transparent and enables a new paradigm of cost management and control.
Orchestrated Intelligence enhances the effectiveness of the planners by providing a foundational capability that ensures the plan is always optimal. With an accurate network that is configured to respond to current and future variability operational issues are minimised. OI enables a transformation of the planner role away from reactive response to analytical process management. The tool enables better execution and improved decision making with less resources.
