11:40 AM: Shipment planning Simulator by Mohammed Suhel (Unilever)
It is a continuous effort to reduce the gap between plan shipment vs actual shipment executed. So we in Unilever come up with a custom tool for doing “what-if” scenarios before planning to facilitate No-touch planning ambition. Every region has different expectation from TMS to meet their business requirement. This will empower our planner to take decision based on utilization, cost, number of trucks, route and service time.

11:40 AM: Logistics 4.0 – getting the extra value out of transport logistics by integrating advanced optimization techniques into decision processes by Robert Recknagel (FLEXIS AG)
In the past, the optimization of transport logistics has been highly segmented. Where strategic, tactical, and operational planning have been dealt with as distinct and separate entities, companies have suffered from siloized decision-making and a lack of transparency, leading to decisions made on incomplete information. Decision-makers must realize that these different planning dimensions actually represent parts of the same whole that need to be interlinked in an integrated planning funnel to avoid bottlenecks, decision-making siloes, and inefficiencies. The combination of end-to-end supply chain planning solutions with the operational execution of OTM as strong TMS will allow customers to outperform in their logistics performance.

3:55 PM: BRiSC: Building Resilience in Supply Chain Resilient Supply Chains by Kamal Gupta (Accelalpha)
With a growing call for leaner and agile supply chains, companies are seeking evermore innovative strategies for sourcing and distribution. But these are resulting in expanding networks with increasing number of entities. Though this improves fulfillment and other metrics, it also increases sources of disruption that lead to loss in sales, revenue, market share and even reputation to the detriment of businesses. Most companies are conscious of these risks but are also wary of lack of precision in available solutions since these work on simplified models of real-world business. Here we review Accelalpha's frugal approach to comprehensively measure and address these risks. The configured solution runs simulations in LNM providing accurate results as they run on Prod data and hence work with exact business rules in force. With these we can provide investigations like Expected Monetary Value and Sensitivity Analysis to aid businesses.
