CSCMP welcomes Cisco to discuss demand forecasting using causal AI
The last 4 years have exposed inherent biases and limitations in expert-driven and statistical/ML-based forecasting approaches. Cisco wasn’t immune from these challenges, and experienced broad-based shortages during the semiconductor crisis driving significant increases in product lead-time and constraining growth, only to be followed by inventory accumulation as the demand cycle inverted. We have operationalized an effective, efficient, comprehensive, and transparent 2-year forecasting capability using Causal-AI that addresses these limitations and enables powerful prescriptive capabilities. This system possesses the capability to identify causal factors influencing demand and forecast points of inflection in demand, as opposed to merely extrapolating trends.
Please join the SF Bay / Silicon Valley RoundTable for dinner and a presentation from Cisco by Adam Plumpton, VP, Supply Chain Operations and Gaurav Bhutani, Director, Supply Chain Operations. Do not miss this dynamic and very relevant event. We’re allowing plenty of time to catch up with colleagues and make new contacts during the networking hour. Then we’ll gather for dinner in this amazing venue.
Tuesday, March 12th – 5:30PM – 8:00PM
