Dr. Jagreet Kaur Gill | 20 May 2024

AI-Driven Supply Chain Innovation


Over the past twenty years, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems have evolved significantly. Initially characterized by manual data entry and high-touch data processes, these systems have gradually embraced automation. Businesses have made considerable progress in automating numerous manual transactions. However, they now find themselves at an automation plateau, where advancing further is becoming increasingly difficult. Despite this, there is an intense desire among the workforce to push the boundaries of automation; a 2023 survey revealed that a staggering 90% of workers are eager to employ Artificial Intelligence (AI) to eliminate the monotonous, repetitive tasks from their jobs, signalling a clear shift towards the integration of AI in the workplace. This transition reflects a growing recognition of AI's potential to enhance efficiency and reshape the future of work.

AI-Driven Transformation in Supply Chain Management

The integration of AI into supply chains is revolutionizing the way businesses operate. By harnessing AI's power, companies can streamline operations, significantly reduce operational costs, and substantially enhance customer satisfaction. The evolution of technology has seen the use of statistical models in areas like inventory management and forecasting; however, the true potential of AI lies in its ability to render supply chain processes more intelligent and self-regulating.

The forthcoming generation of AI is set to transform the supply chain industry further, making it more agile, efficient, and responsive to rapid changes in the market. This transformation is about technology and the synergy between humans and AI. The future envisions a collaborative environment where humans and AI work in tandem, swiftly adapting to changing environments. AI is not a replacement for human innovation; instead, it serves to amplify human impact and capabilities, paving the way for new levels of efficiency and creativity in supply chain management.

Evolution of AI in Supply Chain Management

The evolution of AI in Supply Chain Management (SCM) can be summarized as follows:


1. Early AI Applications: The Inventory Management Assistant (IMA), created in 1986, was the first AI tool in SCM. It aimed to improve the US Air Force's spare parts replenishment and reduce safety stock.

2. AI Growth in the 2000s: The 2010s saw a surge in AI adoption within SCM, fueled by advancements in computing power, more affordable hardware, and the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), which ushered in a significant data era for supply chains.

3. Machine Learning in SCM: Machine learning algorithms have been utilized for various purposes, including demand forecasting, demand sensing, anomaly detection in assets, and inventory optimization, alongside consumer applications like Netflix's recommendation engine.

4. Current AI Landscape: Present-day AI spans image and speech recognition, natural language processing, and autonomous vehicles. Innovations such as Dall-E2 and ChatGPT are opening new avenues for AI applications across different sectors.

5. AI's Untapped Potential: While organizations have begun to leverage AI to create self-learning supply chains and improve algorithms, there is still vast potential in AI's ability to discern complex patterns in big data that are imperceptible to humans.

6. AI in Automation & Interaction: AI's role extends to automating routine SCM decisions and facilitating interactions with systems in ways that are contextually relevant to humans.

7. Integration Imperative: To fully realize AI's benefits in SCM, a platform that connects legacy and modern solutions is essential, unifying the ever-growing supply chain data.
