Supporting learning at CSCMP

Two sessions at CSCMP are worth watching:
 
Session 1:  Meshing Deployment Planning and Execution – Unilever’s Path to Contain Costs.  Giovanni Dal Bon, Head of NA logistics for Unilever, will be talking about the benefits of optimized load building.  Unilever is one of our customers.
 
Session 2:  Panel Discussion – Data Replicas, Digital Twins, and AI (oh my!): Creating a Prescriptive Warehouse.  The panel will discuss the value of using data replicas for data query-ability, digital twins of the warehouse environment to identify constraints, and bottlenecks.  Steve Banker even commented  about this session – “Prescriptive Warehouse.  Nice Phrase”.  You will be able to learn from Jake Barr, a retired P&G supply-chain leader, that AutoScheduler really does prescribe what to do and when to do it to be efficient and get stuff out on time – far more than just a nice phrase!
 
In other news:  Higher supply-chain costs and rising theft and other merchandise “shrink” accounted for half the decline in quarterly profit at supermarket chain Kroger.
