About the Event

Conexus Indiana’s Emerging Technology Showcase Series featured “Creating Next Gen Supply Chains Leveraging Amazon Web Services Technology” in an interactive webinar on Thursday, June 24, 2021.

AWS Professional Services (industry experts and technology specialists providing consulting and system integration services) is offering a complimentary consulting discovery workshop to Conexus Indiana partners/members that attended the event.  In this assessment, you will work with AWS to dive deep into your specific manufacturing and supply chain operations to determine critical KPIs that need improvement and determine specific business use cases that will drive the highest impact of KPI improvement within the 4 walls of your plant and in your supply chain ecosystem. Please reach out to Christopher Pagano, Enterprise Account Executive of Indiana, Amazon Web Services to learn more (cppga@amazon.com).

Event Summary

AI and ML, advanced analytics, and other cloud technologies are helping manufacturers integrate supply chain data silos, gain new real-time insights for data-driven business decisions, and driving supply chain reinvention. To overcome new challenges and disruptions, supply chains need the capability to evolve with speed and agility, now more than ever. Creating Next Gen Supply Chains are required to remain competitive and improve profitability, growth and innovation.

During the event, Mike Brown, Supply Chain Leader for Global and Strategic Accounts at Amazon Web Services, covered how companies can leverage AWS technology to launch business agility strategies and build resiliency into plant operations and supply chain ecosystems to prepare for any new challenges and disruption in the future.

Mike provided a detailed overview of ‘core manufacturing challenges’ as they relate to supply chains, including navigating disruption (supply chain visibility), digital investment (digital twin), supply chain resilience (trade exposure and disruption), sustainability, and workforce challenges and the labor skills gap. This overview was followed by a rundown of actionable steps and use cases for advanced manufacturing, such as automated planning, visibility and control towers, Industry 4.0 and smart factories, as well as a case study from the Volkswagen Group.

  • Learn how dynamic automation and real-time data insights are created with cloud infrastructure and services like AI/ML, IoT, data analytics, digital twins, and blockchain
