The goal was to find a digitally integrated SCM approach that would completely redefine supply chain control. In the future, the supply chain should be in a position to evaluate and decide rapidly changing operational topics based on scenarios and with the support of AI.
The requirements were high: The new SCM tool was to access all relevant data of the company, from personnel deployment plans to supplier data and production costs – supported by data about effects and costs, in order to map valid scenarios for decision making using artificial intelligence.
Additionally, a connection to the supply chains of the customers was desired. A user-friendly, cross-interface control of all data and parameters and the customer-specific optimized design on the basis of data analytics was expected.
