Everyone knows that a manufacturing and distribution plan is obsolete almost as soon as it’s created. That’s why supply chain managers for years have looked for a way to align the two in order to optimize their supply chains for improved execution and financial health. The problem? Technology was not fast enough to meet daily operational requirements.

The good news is that Moore’s Law has increased computing speeds to effectively use model-based optimization and simulation and new sources of data for machine learning that enables process control for integrating planning and execution. The bad news is that very few companies are leveraging the technology for competitive advantage.

In this webinar you’ll learn how leading organizations are using the Big Data collected from the Internet of Things, machine learning, business intelligence, cognitive analytics and massive computing power to re-plan and optimize their supply chains in near real time.
