    Augmented Intelligence in SCM

    Augmented intelligence is a continuing human intelligence with Artificial intelligence, organizations which serves time, reduces 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 planner are not available in 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 real-time, position, and estimated time of arrival of goods based on satellite data.

    Augmented intelligence predictive alerts can include predicting time, 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 supply chain.

    In supply chain, the system helps the optimization of empty container logistics in Augmented intelligence by giving know how of many empty container 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 supply chain. Refer containers which use the advance Remote Container management, technology, leverages the Remote Container management in cold management technology provide full visibility into conditions of the refrigerated cargo during transit.

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

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

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

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

    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 supply chain. To develop disruption of combined wave of utilization of Internet of Things, computers, manned by operations which are part of the decision system, which substitute management as an automation steps in supply chain.
    In supply chain augmented intelligence will provide benefits in warehouse in picking optimization, as each digital picking list will help to display the efficient path, through warehouse, guide person pick the correct packages.

    Most of the trucks are equipped with Global Positioning System, navigation systems, as this will allow efficient route of shipments without causing any significant distraction to drivers. Block in block chain is a record of 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 signature in it, the augmented intelligence provided in the block, are exceptionally good, as they provide as 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 transaction the technology verifies the bank account connect with the banks and process the transaction.

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

    Identification of variable factors in augmented intelligence is to identify variable 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 organization has been complex, with ERP clinical data to some of the data in existence, with the package 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 get 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 number of possibilities causes an order to function) cluster analysis (analysis of task of a group to set an objective.) in 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 better performance, rather than being obsolete. It works with existing humans and reduces the risk of decisions error, and minimizes the handling of the customer engagement in order to adjust and improve the conditions in 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 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 sector of financial, health care, and digital e-commerce in supply chain.

    Blockchain Technology for Supply Chain

    Blockchain is the revolutionary technology which empowered Bitcoin very successfully and with its unique features like security, reliability, automation, decetralized, temper-proof and highly customizabiliity, it can be successfully implemented for Supply Chain Industry as well.
