In the world of supply chains, a transformation is underway. I recently had an intriguing conversation on the Digital Supply Chain podcast with Sanjay Sharma, CEO of Roambee, a company at the forefront of this transformation. Sanjay and his team are harnessing the power of real-time data, AI, and machine learning to reimagine and reshape supply chains, paving the way to a future where supply chains are not just automated, but fully autonomous.
An autonomous supply chain sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, doesn’t it? But the reality is closer than you might think. Autonomous supply chains represent an era where our supply chains can analyze, learn, and make decisions independently. This has massive implications for efficiency, resilience, and agility in our global logistics systems.
During our conversation, Sanjay shared an enlightening example of how an autonomous supply chain could potentially manage disruptions. Remember the Suez Canal incident? That one seemingly small event had an enormous ripple effect on global supply chains. But what if we could model the impact of such micro events and extrapolate them into macro models, allowing us to predict, and more importantly, prepare for their effects? “Can I take that event and start looking at macro models such as would there be an impact on pricing?” Sanjay pondered.
This is exactly where Roambee comes into the picture. They’re working with advanced technologies like graphical neural networks combined with AI, ML, and RPA to build a new generation of network propagation detection systems.
Starting your journey towards digitizing your supply chain might seem daunting, but Sanjay’s advice is surprisingly simple: “Start with the basics of simply lighting up your supply chain and identifying the glitches… That itself will get you 50% of your, towards your ambition of digitizing the supply chain.”
In the end, it all comes down to this: the path to revolutionizing your supply chain starts with understanding and enhancing your current operations. The first step towards an autonomous supply chain is bringing visibility to your existing one.
We’re on the cusp of a new era in supply chain management, with the concept of autonomous supply chains fast transitioning from fiction to reality. Leaders like Sanjay Sharma and companies like Roambee are spearheading this change, taking us closer to a future where our supply chains are smarter, more responsive, and amazingly autonomous.
