The Year of the Brownfield Warehouse

Brownfield investment happens when companies invest to improve the performance of existing facilities. Greenfield investments are much bigger capital expenditures. This form of investment allows the latest technology to be employed and for a facility to be built that […]

Getting Started with AI in Supply Chain

2 months 3 weeks ago

Getting started with AI in supply chain might not start where you think. Some try delving into deep learning or a crash course in generative AI (GenAI), but I don’t recommend starting there. Instead start with the foundation of your AI strategy, which should be an understanding of your company’s supply chain and your data. […]

What is Genuinely New in Supply Chain Management?

Trends last for years. But how often do significant new things happen? In most years, there is nothing new in supply chain management. In the past year, we have seen two genuinely new developments.

This was a very interesting week as we saw a number of long-lasting partnerships come to an end. As a New England Patriots fan, this season was certainly disappointing, as everything seemed to go wrong, except for landing a top-3 draft pick in 2024. In a move that was not surprising, but still seems so […]

3 months ago

If You Can’t Access the Truth, How Can You Determine the Truth? Let’s just come right out and say it – without the ability to capture, aggregate, and understand your supply chain data, you have gray area within your organization.

3 months 1 week ago

All countries claim that they have outlawed slavery. But slavery still exists.

Omnichannel Retailers Leverage Optimization for Order-Promising

3 months 2 weeks ago

Historically, omnichannel software solutions were not capable of optimization. This meant that retailers were not maximizing their profitability. That is changing. Omnichannel refers to the ability of a consumer to get products fulfilled to them in various ways. A customer can of course buy goods in a store. They can also order online and have […]
