As with other industries, the COVID-19 pandemic crippled consumer goods supply chains. Customers became unsettled because common products disappeared off shelves with no promise of a restocking date. From toilet paper, hair dye and meat to exercise equipment, the list of items impacted seemed never ending, and the uncertainty of accessibility drove shoppers to extreme behavior, including hoarding and robbery.

The most recent McKinsey Global Survey on AI shows a 25% increase in use by companies over the prior year, a trend that shows no signs of slowing. At this pace, have we entered the Age of AI? Do we even need supply chain planners, or can we turn out the lights and go home, because we now live in a world of autonomous planning? The short answer is that planners are more important than ever, and not just because the hype may be ahead of the curve. According to the MHI Industry Annual Report, AI and machine learning adoption in supply chains is only 12% today, but the curve is expected to rise rapidly to 60% within five years. More importantly, while AI may promise the world driverless cars, supply chains still need humans in the driver’s seat. Although human hands need to remain on the wheel, it is time for a shift change. We are driving on a different kind of supply chain landscape these days, which calls for a different kind of planner.

The rug has been pulled out from beneath us. Doing things the same way we’ve always done them will no longer serve us, so we can’t simply put it back in its place. In fact, the definition of pulling the rug out from underneath someone is that doing so causes their plans to fail, because they have little recourse or time to respond adequately. It’s a fitting metaphor for the world’s supply chains, which have always had to figure out how to respond rapidly in the face of rug-tugging disruptions, although none at the scope of the current one. We can count on disruption occurring again, in some form, so the only way to respond is to build in the supply chain agility necessary to be able to respond more effectively next time our rug is yanked.
