The Promise of AI in Orthopedic Supply Chain Decisions

About Video

Orthopedic supply chain professionals are forced to execute with extreme flexibility and resiliency as they respond to forecast changes, product shortages, capacity limitations and logistic hurdles. This session covers the broad overview of artificial intelligence (AI) and its evolution and new set of applications.

AI can offer teams greater agility by accurately streamlining processes and providing data-driven insight for problematic decisions. Specifically, sourcing, procurement, operations and supply chain functions can apply AI for supplier evaluation and negotiation preparation to dynamic supply chain simulation and optimization.

The session leverages use cases of AI in medtech and other industries to demonstrate how AI can create value and help companies develop a strategic advantage in the orthopedic market.
