Augmented Intelligence in SCM

Augmented intelligence is continuing human intelligence with Artificial intelligence, organizations that serve time, reduce operating expenses, eliminating manual error, while human employees can focus more on many of the factual functions, and complex duties.

Augmented intelligence combines inputs from human planners, their experience, responsibility, customer service, flexibility, common service rendered during the course of supply chain activities, as it is found that Artificial intelligence is found to do the repetitive, and tedious work, using the available data, updating providing all back-up decisions if the planner is not available in the supply chain.

Augmented intelligence systems are feedback-driven, self-learning, self-assuring system, that emulate and extend human cognitive abilities.

Augmented intelligence helps planners in real logistic programs, operations, by using intelligence, altering based on predictive analysis, as it gets information about the real-time, position, and the estimated time of arrival of goods based on satellite data.

Augmented intelligence predictive alerts can include predicting time, the arrival of trucks based on traffic conditions predicting repairs based on Global Positioning Systems, detection of goods damages, insurance claim based on temperature sensors, and predicting future supply-demand based on multiple variables, predicting warehouse opinions on weather in the supply chain.

In the supply chain, the system helps the optimization of empty container logistics in Augmented intelligence by giving know-how of many empty containers to load, unload, at each destination, allocation of optimal containers to each customer booking, taking back container at right time, at the right location in the right conditions, in order to give them to the next customer plan proactive maintenance high in grading in the supply chain. Refer containers that use the advanced Remote Container management, technology, leverages the Remote Container management in cold management technology provides full visibility into conditions of the refrigerated cargo during transit.

Augmented intelligence on the controlled atmosphere container helps extend the shelf life of groceries, fruits, by slowing down the aging process.

Augmented intelligence is a powerful source than humans or machines, alone and the approach in the supply chain, for logistic planning, empowered by expert planners will be valuable in the supply chain.

In the supply chain, the augmented intelligence solutions are that it helps to monitor supplier performance automatically identify issues, risk, and also monitor with the automated resources the assignment to help to identify automated corrective plans, risk mitigation, strategies, and the real-time monitoring resources alignment before the start of the augmented intelligence, and as they become useful.

In the supply chain the expectation of the suppliers to adopt certain capabilities on market-based supplier intelligence relationship monitoring risk, mitigation, strategy identification optimization of real-time resources alignment.

In the supply chain augmented intelligence has been benefitted the segments of the organization, and among the supply chain management geographically has given importance by the disappearance of the physical border with it comes to the transaction.

In the supply chain internet as a communication medium is used to send instant messages, and the use of chatbots, which has automated the conversation to streamline procurement, related tasks through automation. The many purposes of the chatbots are to help the initial step in procurement in the supply chain, chatbots are to automate with a customer communicating direct calls and exchanges.

The supply chain of what is today is impacted from augmented reality, in material handling, but is empowered from the entire, new generation of technology, from robots to augmented intelligence to Big Data, along with all available information decision, and governed by automation to do forecasting and planning in the supply chain. To develop disruption of a combined wave of the utilization of Internet of Things, computers, manned by operations which are part of the decision system, which substitute management as an automation step in supply chain.


In the supply chain augmented intelligence will provide benefits in a warehouse in picking optimization, as each digital picking list will help to display the efficient path, through a warehouse, guide person pick the correct packages.

Most of the trucks are equipped with Global Positioning System, navigation systems, as this will allow the efficient route of shipments without causing any significant distraction to drivers. Block in the blockchain is a record of a transaction, and the more of the latter, the longer is the supply chain. It is like a worthless paper that transforms into valuable currency, with a signature in it, the augmented intelligence provided in the block, is exceptionally good, as they provide an unalterable document of the transaction.

In this context of currency, it stores the place, time; value i.e. currency, and the location of purchase. There is minimal identifying information, and the augmented intelligence is linked to every block and to a unique digital signature of the transaction of the participations, and every block is distinguished from one another through a unique code, which bears a string of numbers. With the use of the Debit or Credit card to make transactions the technology verifies the bank account connect with the banks and process the transaction.

In a supply chain organization that has large supply chains with a number of orders, procurement in process, handling invoicing, purchase, the process can be significant.

Augmented intelligence plays a role in inventory management, by using image recognition to perform inventory analysis, and constraints the audit inventory in the supply chain.

Identification of variable factors in augmented intelligence is to identify variables that influence the process, which may hold a key the problem like the categorized variable of time, of the day, either day time or night time, size of the batch, size of stock-keeping units.

Collecting data in augmented intelligence in most organizations has been complex, with ERP clinical data to some of the data in existence, with the packaging process being rectified in conjunction with MIS.

In supply chain solution of data analysis, the augmented intelligence is to decide the data analysis that can be applied to the problem that gets to the insight of the process like multiple regression,(predict the value if variable based on the value) factor analysis,( a process in which value of observed data are expressed as a function of a number of possibilities causes an order to function) cluster analysis (analysis of the task of a group to set an objective) in the supply chain.

In supply chain augmented intelligence combines the strength of humans in reasoning creativity judgment, flexibility with machines, in perfect, recalling accuracy speed and logic to give an incredible boost to the cognitive performance helping human to take up a better performance, rather than being obsolete. It works with existing humans and reduces the risk of decisions error, and minimizes the handling of customer engagement in order to adjust and improve the conditions in the supply chain.

In supply chain augmented intelligence is considered a solution or a tool, and the application of humans, but rather finding the hidden data with a meaning uncovering the patterns, of realization at a prominent scale in the supply chain, since the new application will come into force, and decisions will improve provided the forced back will bring in continuous improvement.

Augmented intelligence system uses artificial intelligence in processing spatial navigation, machine vision, logistic reason, machine learning, and recognizable of pattern in the sector of financial, health care, and digital e-commerce in the supply chain.
