Modern supply chains represent complex systems of organizations, people, activities, information, and resources involved in moving a product or service from supplier to customer. Supply Chain Management (SCM) solutions are typically manifest in software architecture and systems that facilitate the flow of information among different functions within and between enterprise organizations.

Leading SCM solutions catalyze information sharing across organizational units and geographical locations, enabling decision-makers to have an enterprise-wide view of the information needed in a timely, reliable and consistent fashion. Various forms of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are being integrated into SCM solutions to improve everything from process automation to overall decision-making. This includes greater data visibility (static and real-time data) as well as related management information system effectiveness.

In addition to fully automated decision-making, AI systems are also leveraging various forms of cognitive computing to optimize the combined efforts of artificial and human intelligence. For example, AI in SCM is enabling improved supply chain automation through the use of virtual assistants, which are used both internally (within a given enterprise) as well as between supply chain members (e.g. customer-supplier chains). It is anticipated that virtual assistants in SCM will leverage an industry-specific knowledge database as well as company, department, and production-specific learning.

AI-enabled improvements in supply chain member satisfaction causes a positive feedback loop, leading to better overall SCM performance. One of the primary goals is to leverage AI to make supply chain improvements from production to consumption within product-related industries as well as create opportunities for supporting "servitization" of products in a cloud-based "as a service" model. AI will identify opportunities for supply chain members to have greater ownership of "outcomes as a service" and control of overall product/service experience and profitability.

With Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and solutions taking an ever-increasing role in SCM, the inclusion of AI algorithms and software-driven processes with IoT represents a very important opportunity to leverage the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) in supply chains. More specifically, AIoT solutions leverage the connectivity and communications power of IoT, along with the machine learning and decision-making capabilities of AI, as a means of optimizing SCM by way of data-driven managed services.
