Cognitive supply networks to support healthcare resilience [SDG 11] Global Talent Week 2023
Building resilient and sustainable local communities is crucial in today’s world, where geopolitical, climate, and black swan events can disrupt supplies and services.
To tackle these challenges, establishing manufacturing resilience is key, especially in the healthcare sector, which plays a critical role in ensuring the health of communities. With the rise of personalized healthcare, it is important to ensure the stability and continuity of supplies to sustain society.
To achieve this, a self-X cognitive supply chain network is proposed to enhance existing healthcare supply chains. The proposed self-X cognitive supply chain network leverages industrial knowledge graphs to organize multi-source heterogeneous data and enhance knowledge utilization capabilities, thus achieving disruption management.
The self-x paradigm is designed to support stakeholders in overcoming a wide range of prevailing challenges ranging from supplier selection to last-mile delivery. Recent studies on advanced computational techniques such as multi-agent deep reinforcement learning can be used to control complex resource systems cognitively as well.
Based on a modular architecture, relevant paradigms such as smart product-services systems, human-centricity, and solution family reconfiguration/ redesign can be used to ensure next-generation product and service satisfaction.
This network is structured as a system of systems and comprises of three core components: self-configuration, self-optimization, and self-adaptation. Self-configuration refers to automating the reconfiguration of supply chain resources to perform on-demand manufacturing services. Self-optimization aims to achieve optimal supply chain performance by reorganizing supply and production nodes within the network. Self-adaptation actively monitors supply chain processes to identify variations and deal with potential disruptions via a human-in-the-loop approach.
The self-X cognitive supply chain network enables the mass customization of healthcare goods and services based on individual context, alternative product sourcing in the event of global disruptions, as well as responsible consumption through dynamic pricing techniques. With an emphasis on minimizing carbon emissions through optimal network routing and promoting sustainability, this network aims to establish manufacturing resilience for supply continuity and contribute to a resilient society.
In conclusion, the self-X cognitive supply chain network is proposed to enhance existing healthcare supply chains aimed at establishing manufacturing resilience for supply continuity and influencing responsible consumption for a resilient society.
