Recent AWS Supply Chain Releases and Commitment to Customers

We’re preparing for the future of supply chain with innovation on AWS Supply Chain. We innovate by working backwards from our customers, where we listen to you, understand your challenges, and gather your feedback. This approach ensures that our innovations are aligned with your evolving needs. AWS Supply Chain is a cloud-based application that helps supply chain leaders mitigate risks and lower costs to increase supply chain resilience. AWS Supply Chain unifies supply chain data, provides machine learning (ML)–powered connectors and actionable insights, and offers built-in contextual collaboration. It is designed to help you increase customer service levels by reducing stock outs and help you lower costs from overstock.

This blog post summarizes the recent AWS Supply Chain releases. These features and capabilities are based on your feedback.

Forecasting using Product Lineage in Demand Planning

AWS Supply Chain Demand Planning now allows you to link products with their predecessor versions or alternates, referred to as product lineage, to enhance forecast accuracy. By establishing links between products and their previous versions or alternate products, planners can utilize historical sales data of prior models or similar products to inform forecasts. This ‘surrogate history’ forms the basis for more accurate demand predictions, ensuring that forecasts generated through product lineage are inherently precise, thereby minimizing the need for manual adjustments.

Enhancing Demand Planning

Demand forecasting is at the heart of an efficient supply chain so we’ve introduced multiple features to enhance this process:

  • The ability to apply multiple overrides on a demand forecast, allowing for simultaneous adjustments across products.
  • An intuitive and revamped user interface for AWS Supply Chain Demand Planning, simplifying forecast settings and streamlining workflows.
  • Automated retention of manual forecast overrides across planning cycles, ensuring consistent and efficient forecasting.

Boosting User Experience and Compliance

We’re committed to providing a seamless user experience. We’ve integrated AWS CloudTrail with AWS Supply Chain Demand Planning, enabling you to always monitor and ensure governance to improve transparency and compliance.

Extending Availability to New Regions

Regional interest in AWS Supply Chain continues to increase so we’re extending regional availability. AWS Supply Chain is now available in Australia (Sydney), Europe (Ireland), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Frankfurt).


We’ll be unveiling additional exciting updates in the coming months. These enhancements are driven by our focus on innovation and based on our commitment to delivering value to our customers.
