Today’s supply chains are global networks of manufacturers, suppliers, logistics, and eCommerce/DTC retailers that work together to deliver products to the end customer. As modern supply chains continue to expand, they also are becoming more complex and disparate. They require a unified view of data, as well as the ability to independently verify their transactions, such as production and transport updates. Solutions built using AWS services, such as Amazon Managed Blockchain and Amazon Forecast, provide the end-to-end visibility today’s supply chains need to track and trace their entire production process with unprecedented efficiency.
Featured AWS solutions
Track raw material, completed product, and serialized assets as they move through the value chain in real time.
Sense consumer demand and improve forecast accuracy with machine learning to maintain lean inventory in the value chain.
Optimize buying decisions for both direct and indirect material with AI/ML. Align material needs to support operations, while meeting financial goals and sourcing allocation constraints.
Identify the underlying root causes in missed customer order service levels for quantity and scheduled timelines. Improve the on shelf availability of the product and reduce lost sales.
Improve inventory receipt, pick-pack, and put-away operations in the warehouse by optimizing labor, space and inventory. Automate physical operations with robotics, wearables, and devices to improve overall inventory throughput.
Predict supply chain risk from planning and execution system data, along with risk from external data sources including weather, economic indicators, or capacity disruptions. Provide a decision support platform to mitigate the overall risk in supply chain at scale and speed.
Use forecasts that are up to 50% more accurate with Amazon Forecast. Based on the same technology used at Amazon.com, it automatically discovers how time series data and other variables like product features and store locations affect each other.
Determine how much inventory to purchase and allocate with more accurate customer demand forecasts with Amazon Forecast. This helps you reduce inventory costs, while still ensuring a good customer experience.
Easily integrate more accurate forecasting into your existing business processes to improve capacity utilization. AWS supply chain management services integrate with your existing tools, such as SAP and Oracle Supply Chain.
AWS and Deloitte empower customers to transform their business, innovate faster, and grow ahead of the curve by combining AWS’ industry-leading cloud technologies with Deloitte’s deep industry experience, established customer relationships, and position as advisor to the C-suite.
Smart Factory Fabric is a pre-configured suite of cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications designed to accelerate smart factory transformations for companies with manufacturing operations. The Smart Factory Fabric suite of services helps companies improve their operational performance and reduce costs by increasing visibility, optimizing production, improving quality, and minimizing unplanned downtime associated with running a smart factory.
TensorIoT was founded on the instinct that the majority of 'compute' is moving to the edge and all 'things' are becoming smarter. The company is creating solutions to simplify the way enterprises incorporate Intelligent Edge Computing devices and their data into their day-to day-operations.
“In collaboration with Deloitte and AWS, we're working to quickly implement smart factory solutions into our manufacturing operations that will lead to an increase in production throughput, asset utilization, while reducing inventory.”
