You may think AI is only involved in big exciting areas such as space exploration, robotics, manufacturing, healthcare and green energy initiatives. Of course, AI does play a big and important part in all these things but AI is also embedded in every day processes. In this short course we are going to look at how AI is used in the supply chain and one of the most consumed items in the western world, milk.

Skip to 0 minutes and 42 secondsToday, in a world with an ever growing population how can be satisfy the high volume demand of the consumer so that they can enjoy a nice cup of tea every morning and not have to think about all the steps involved in getting that bottle into their fridge.

There are a lot of people involved in the many stages of the supply chain of milk, farms, bottling plants, distribution centres, supermarkets, local shops. In this short course you will explore how artificial intelligence can support business leaders to implement data driven decision making and planning.

Skip to 1 minute and 30 secondsWe will look at the example of AI in the supply chain exploring what analysis each step might need and what type of data is required to run such analysis.

AI technologies and the supply chain: an overview

To illustrate the concepts discussed in this course, we’re going to look at the role Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays in the supply chain of one of the most popular consumer products in the western world – milk.

In this section, we’ll examine what type of analysis the different contributors to the supply chain might need. We’ll also look at what needs to be done to make data suitable for analysis and how the analysis of ‘big data’ can be automated.
