In both the healthcare and food industries, billions are lost annually due to waste caused by supply chain inefficiencies.
Waste comes down to four primary challenge areas
These challenges can be traced to a primary root cause; ERP data not being connected to Customer Data. Equipped with the power of AI, we’re out to change that through a never-seen-before layer of smartness bridging that disconnect.
Seeloz’ Operational Optimization System (OOS) is an AI-Driven software solution that minimizes inefficiencies.
The OOS builds a layer of smartness into the gap between Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and customer data.
With AI driven workflows, day-to- day operations are empowered with the intelligent understanding of current and forecasted needs.
The Decision Support System empowers decision makers with actionable insights derived from 360 data views.
Performance Monitoring:Proactively address the future with Big Data KPIs detailing the next best actions based on past/current/forecasted performance.
Root Cause Analysis:Our AI-driven Correlation Engine brings together a cross-enterprise visibility to deliver insights into the causes that determines operational performance.
Smart Alerts:An AI Engine that automatically detects anomalies/irregularities, notifies users, determines roots cause, and proactively recommends corrective actions.
Process Automation leverages AI to inject Automation into daily workflows across the supply chain.
The Process Automation solution has four modules that can work together or independently:
Autonomous Procurement:Sets (or recommends) the optimal amount to procure from each item to optimize customer satisfaction and minimize all sorts of waste.
Autonomous Inventory:Sets (or recommends) the optimal amount to keep from every item at each warehouse.
Proactive Salesman:recommends to the sales representative what to sell to each customer, at each location, at what price with recommended discounts applies. Totally takes the guesswork out of sales.
Autonomous Delivery Scheduler:Optimizes delivery schedules to ensure customer satisfaction and minimize supply chain inefficiencies.
With AI driven Process Automation, we can forecast needs, determine target inventory levels, and optimize re-ordering at the warehouse level to reduce supply waste by 50-80%.
Pharmaceutical waste is a worldwide problem. Expired drugs account for $100B+ in annual loss in the US alone.
OOS helps hospital operators minimize inefficiencies and waste across the hospital departments & the IDN supply chain, particularly at the pharmacy, surgery and materials management departments.
With Autonomous Procurement & Autonomous Inventory driving supply chain decisions through a deep understanding of patient needs, pharmaceutical waste resulting from expired supply, overstocking, stock outs, and cross-warehouse movement of supply items is reduced across the board.
Not only OOS automates overall supply procurement and stocking for any IDN at the warehouse and hospital location levels, but it also automates the movement and stocking of supply across hospital departments and substores to minimize all forms of supply waste within every hospital.
The OOS Ecosystem includes a beneficial value proposition to each of the major players in the healthcare ecosystem, including tailored OOS versions for hospitals, distributors and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
According to the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), waste across the food supply chain ranges between 20% and 30% in developed countries.
OOS empowers food distributors and wholesalers to minimize inefficiencies and waste across the supply chain through injecting AI-driven smartness into the different daily supply management workflows including sales, procurement, inventory management and delivery. Similarly, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) manufacturers who run their own direct-store-delivery supply chains can benefit from OOS to optimize their supply chain performance in the same way.
With OOS driving supply chain decisions through a deep understanding of per-retail-location shopper needs, food waste resulting from expired supply, overstocking, stock outs, and cross-warehouse movement of supply items is reduced across the board.
FMCG retailers can benefit from OOS to automate their supply procurement, stocking and display activities and make them fully driven by shopper interests”.
OOS is built on a solid Data Warehouse represented by a proprietary packaging of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).
HDFS is built to support applications with large data sets, including individual files that reach into the terabytes.
Apache Spark is a powerful open-source processing engine built around speed, ease of use, and sophisticated analytics.
It was originally developed at UC Berkeley in 2009. Since its release, Apache Spark has seen rapid adoption by enterprises across a wide range of industries.
Internet powerhouses such as Netflix, Yahoo, and eBay have deployed Spark at massive scale, collectively processing multiple petabytes of data on clusters of over 8,000 nodes..
OOS’ built-in smartness layer is designed to analyze and correlate data, present actionable information to help executives, managers and other corporate end users make informed business decision, and ultimately inject automation into daily workflows.
To ensure the real-time high scalability of this AI layer, the OOS incorporates an In-Memory Database (IMDB) running seamlessly on top of HDFS.
