Our previous discussion on augmented reality revealed a new trend in supply chain management, the use of computer-simulated imagery to enhance production and efficiency. However, the supply chain tends to forget how augmented reality will naturally transform the entire supply chain, and supply chain artificial intelligence is one of the key driving forces behind supply chain augmented reality.
Augmented……what? Reality? Augmented Reality Supply Chain? As Will Ferrell says, “You’re crazy man. I love you, but…you’re crazy.” Not so fast. The Augmented Reality Supply Chain is here…..and well…..it’s going to be effective.
Supply chain innovation and change are the driving forces behind today’s modern supply chain, and, according to Nye Longman of Supply Chain Management, the rate of change isn’t going too slow. However, new trends in technology, process automation, and better customer-relationship management tools are essential in responding to innovation and change.

The industries of manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, and transportation management, like much of the modern world, are seeing substantial change as new technologies come on board.
A traditional viewpoint of manufacturers reveals many flaws in the efficiencies of standard shipping, transportation, and other logistics processes. Inherently, manufacturing and logistics go hand in hand. Manufacturers must receive raw material inbound and send out product to customers outbound.
How often do you hear the term, “productivity in manufacturing?” This term is often tossed about and misunderstood to mean making more than anyone else. Today we will talk about how supply chain mobility will aid in this pursuit, but first let’s take a look at what it means to manufacturers.According to Merriam-Webster, productivity is defined as:1. The quality or state of being productive.
Editor’s Note: As we see the transition to digital manufacturing and the use of the cloud and other web-based systems, manufacturing and cyber security continue to collide. Further, as a provider of a web-based transportation management system, Cerasis has our own documentation on how we protect our customer shippers. You can view our document as a helpful guide for your company here.
Effective transportation management can be a hassle. Transportation managers must keep up with the ship dates of inventory, where inventory is currently located in the transportation process, what insurance information is being used and appropriated for each shipment, and many more factors.
