Session 1: Meshing Deployment Planning and Execution – Unilever’s Path to Contain Costs featuring Tom Moore of AutoScheduler and Giovanni Dal Bon from Unilever. Tuesday, September 21 10:00 AM
Unilever will discuss the tools and processes the company uses to drive efficiency in supply planning and the importance of aligning objectives for key stakeholders (Customer Service, Transportation, and Planning) who often have conflicting goals. With deployment costs representing more than 30% of total supply chain costs, supply planners need to work within real-world constraints to maximize equipment utilization while ensuring that the locations have space and staffing to meet and exceed customer service goals.
Session 2: Panel Discussion – Data Replicas, Digital Twins, and AI (oh my!): Creating a Prescriptive Warehouse. Tuesday, Sept. 21 3:30 PM
- Keith Moore – AutoScheduler.AI – Chief Product Officer
- Craig Weiss – Conagra – SVP Supply Chain
- Daniel Vasseur – Racetrac – Director
- Jake Barr – Blueworld Consulting – CEO/Former P&G Supply Chain Executive
This panel brings together industry experts from major consumer goods companies, 3PLs, and key software vendors to discuss how leading companies gain a competitive advantage by successfully leveraging technology in distribution centers. The panel will discuss the value of using data replicas for data query-ability, digital twins of the warehouse environment to identify constraints and bottlenecks, and AI/machine learning to create prescriptive plans for future activities. Core organizational strategies necessary to drive efficiency in DCs and develop realistic roadmaps for success will be shared. The panel will also discuss why it is critical to converge data across disparate campus systems to inform staff of when an item will be out-of-stock and how to eliminate or mitigate problems before they happen.
