The top 8 supply chain technology trends for 2019 include Artifical Intelligence (AI) which can be semi-automated, fully-automated or a mix of both. Artificial Intelligence (AI) are self-learning and use natural language and automate processes such as demand forecasting, production planning, or predictive maintenance. Advanced Analytics are given in real-time or near-real-time and determine dynamic pricing, product quality testing and dynamic replenishment. It better understands future scenarios and makes profitable recommendations. IoT uses sensors to track assets or containers and improves asset utilization and higher uptime. IoT improves customer service, end-to-end supply chain performance and supply availability, supply chain visibility & reliability. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) cuts cost, eliminates keying errors, speeds up processes, links applications, and is very effective in simple use cases.  Autonomous Things enable new business scenarios and optimize existing ones. Robots carry out jobs to create a seamless and connected process. They use drones for inventory quality assurance and take images with the drone’s camera to reduce the time for inventory checks. Digital Supply Chain Twin is the digital representation of the relationships between all the relevant entities of an end-to-end supply chain. It creates end-to-end visibility by being in sync with the real-world supply chain. It also greatly enhances situational awareness and increases the quality and speed of decisions. Immersive Experiences save time improves safety and makes mundane tasks easier.  It provides the renderings of equipment to visualize the footprint of a defined space and voice-controlled personal assistants to remotely check product features or appointments. Finally, Blockchain provides automation, traceability, and security.  Blockchain is unregulated, ungoverned verification of successful transactions, as well as immutability.
