Following the work we did last year looking at developments in demand forecasting, the Association has invited De Montfort University to present at the next Technical Forum meeting.
At the meeting they will be reporting on a UK Government funded research project called AIDMT which they have been involved with which aims to develop an Autonomous & Intelligent Demand Management approach by structuring the causal and planning relationships between retail demand forecasts, production schedules and capacity plans as autonomous control networks primarily for the food sector.
It is anticipated that work in this area will have implications for both manufacturing and retailing.
The meeting, which takes place at Fresh-Pak, Barnsley, Yorkshire at 10.30am on 8th June, 2017
There will also be an opportunity to visit a local Fareshare operation to see how they distribute waste food to the needy.
As space is limited, it is advisable to book early if you wish to attend.
Attendance is free for members (£75 + VAT) non-members.
