Data-driven Innovation for the Supply Chain and Retail Industry
The project is a partnership between Polytechnique Montréal, HEC Montréal, UQAM and JDA Canada. JDA Labs is investigating new approaches to help incorporate "big data" science and analytics into everyday supply chain decisions. It relies on new approaches that employ sensor technologies, new analytic capabilities and simulation techniques to not just sense and respond, but anticipate and act by making complex decisions while decreasing the risk exposure. The project benefits are strengthening the agility to support the customer, reducing the cost of poor quality and delivering superior customer service while reducing the dependency on inventory to help maintain the competitive edge.
