The current trends in supply chain are showing increased costs in warehousing and logistics as businesses try to meet the immediate demands of their customers. The impact of same day and next day delivery is being felt in all industries and there is no doubt that warehousing costs are increasing as the need for quicker delivery and processing becomes the norm. Transforming the warehouse to be “intelligent” is becoming critical for success. Now is the time to transform your warehouse into an “intelligent” warehouse where robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), 3D printing, machine learning, etc. are deployed to create the “warehouse of the future”. Where are you going to be in 2025?
In this session, expert speaker Dave Malenfant will talk about the trends in warehousing, distribution and transportation (W, D &T) that are leading to the need for transformation. Dave will review some of the options and tools available to make the warehouse “intelligent” through machine learning and the use of artificial intelligence.
This session will look at changes in people, processes and enabling technology to make the warehouse fast, efficient and cost effective. Dave will discuss the integration of AI into the WMS/TMS and ERP. You will learn the need to transform your warehousing into a fully integrated, intelligent operation designed around the demand for immediate delivery. This is not for everyone – but, the transformation of the warehouse will be critical in industries that are consumer driven. You will learn the steps to be taken to assess the need and requirements for transforming the warehouse design and systems.
After attending this session you will be able to know the requirements to implement a cost effective, intelligent warehouse that is responsive to the demand-driven customer. Dave will provide you with some key ideas that can be used to build the business case for warehouse transformation.
