Speaker: Jacomine Grobler, visiting professor from Stellenbosch University (South Africa) 

Thursday, 21 September at 10:30 am at Sala de Juntes FIB (Building B6, first floor)


Effective supply chain management is one of the most important enablers for the operational success of a company. Customers expect to receive the right product, at the right time, at the right place, and in perfect condition. This goal is, however, challenging to achieve in an ever-changing business and technology environment. Fortunately, more and more data is being created every day that can be used to improve decision-making in a supply chain. This webinar will introduce supply chain data science and touch on various case studies from the logistics, manufacturing and agricultural industries. These case studies will be used to show the value that data science can add to the process of converting raw data to effective business decision-making.
