Supply Chain of the Future Lab announced

Exciting news from the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and the Distribution Business Management Associations (DBMA)… gotta love those names… anyway, they have announced a 100,000 square foot educational lab at CSCMP’s conference in San Diego next year.

In a joint announcement, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and the Distribution Business Management Association (DBMA) unveiled plans at the CSCMP annual conference in Chicago for a new 100,000 square foot educational lab at CSCMP’s conference in San Diego next year. Called the Supply Chain of the Future, it will be a real-time, fully-integrated, functional supply chain lab that will take attendees into a world of automated innovation and new technologies in several areas, including product design and development, sourcing and procurement, demand planning and inventory management, manufacturing and materials handling, transportation and fulfillment, and reverse logistics.

According to Rick Blasgen, CSCMP president and CEO, “The exhibit will give attendees a first-hand look at the technologies, processes, and solutions provided by high-performing supply chains and a revealing look into future enhancements. This is no movie but a hands-on, real-time operating supply chain,” said Blasgen. “This new initiative will take our attendees’ educational experience to the next level,” he added.

I wonder if they will demo any Augmented Reality technology?
