Concept Demonstration Example
Supply chains play an important role for defence. They are networks which coordinate different tiers, from raw material suppliers all the way to the client (defence) to receive products at the right place and the right time. Like other supply chains, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic may create uncertainty and disruptions in defence supply chains, which can impact on the robustness of their performance. Using modern industry 4.0 technology, we can create a decision support system to give us centralised visibility, control and the ability to optimise planning over the defence supply chain and remediate many of the issues that arise.
The following video is a conceptual demonstration of the work of some of our research associates on this topic.
