Automated supply chains deliver enhanced visibility, more accurate demand planning, and improved resilience. These are the characteristics needed to get more products from the factory floor to the customer door without delays or damage. They are “self-driving,” which means that most decisions are automatic and do not require human intervention. By enabling information to flow more freely, they help manufacturers avoid and address major disruptions from natural disasters, blocked shipping lanes, or a global pandemic. Their key attributes are real-time inventory control, end-to-end visibility, an actionable ecosystem, and “links” that consist of optimized microservices.
