Avoid disruptions

87% of CSCOs say it is extremely difficult to predict and manage disruptions.* AI helps uncover insights in massive amounts of untapped data from various existing systems and data sources, including weather and transportation.

IBM solutions help bring disparate data together, applying AI to predict disruptions and recommend solutions so you can respond quickly. As issues are resolved, AI learns, helping you manage future disruptions by offering better solutions.

Build with blockchain

Growing manufacturing supply chain complexity due to increasing regulations, ethical sourcing considerations, counterfeit parts, and more, make the tracking and communicating of large volumes of varied types of data crucial. Blockchain offers the solution that can improve your supply chain visibility.IBM Blockchain helps build efficiency, transparency, and trust -providing a shared, permissioned record of ownership, location and movement of parts and goods. The versatility of these records makes them perfect for keeping up with innovative new business models.

Respond quickly

B2B networks continue to grow in size and complexity, requiring a frictionless space to connect and collaborate within. Digital manufacturing supply chains provide that space. You can save time searching EDI data with AI document correlation technologies and accessing data in easy to read formats helps you respond quickly to supply chain disruptions.

Supply chain planning and optimization

Tap into hidden data so that service level, cost, and inventory are perpetually balanced. A cognitive strategy provides the blueprint for a new generation operating model for planning and operations which considers workforce, processes, and technology. Our garage method helps you with rapid ideation, prototyping, and testing to think differently about manufacturing supply chain functions and see results quickly.
