Expertise Session: Digital Supply Chain
Date and time
Tue, 28 May 19 17:30
A unique inspiration session while sharing a bite of well-deserved pizza in our own TMC pub and exchanging ideas on a specific field of technological expertise.
LET’S TALK ABOUT YOUR EXPERTISE
"The importance of big data, total visibility, connectedness in the value chain & security and trust"
Hein Boersma (ICT Manager & innovator at Borgesius) strives for ‘exactly enough’. At Borgesius they use self-learning AI systems for store-sales prediction. They now have the means for perfect store replenishment, using less supply chain resources. They are faced with serious raw materials- and product-waste reduction in the supply chain. How does that work for the country's largest industrial baker? On a daily basis, Borgesius bakes and supplies more than one million daily fresh breads and pastries. The production is done on 75 production lines, divided over 20 modern industrial bakeries in The Netherlands.
Certainly with fast moving fresh consumer products, it is becoming increasingly important that we predict the fluctuating consumer demand, which also depends on promotions, weather, holidays, vacations, and local events. Forecasting is increasingly done on the basis of large amounts of continuously enriched historical sales data and intelligent decision systems that learn to improve every day. In addition, we must structure and connect the entire ICT supply chain in such a way that we can respond flexibly and efficiently to disruptions in operations and the strongly fluctuating demand.
