Gartner Supply Chain Hype Cycle: CognitOps listed for Warehouse Resource Optimization

The CognitOps team is honored to be highlighted in the Gartner Supply Chain Hype Cycles for 2021 and 2023. 

  • Warehouse Resource Planning and Optimization (Emerging)

Gartner’s definition of the category:

Warehouse resource planning and optimization applies the concepts of forward-looking, constraint-based planning and optimization to work activities within a warehouse, distribution center or warehouse campus, leveraging advanced analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning technologies.

Why it’s important:

Warehousing trails manufacturing by decades in adopting sophisticated constraint-based planning capabilities. As warehouse operations become more complex, the need for new sources of productivity gains will drive the demand for constraint-based planning concepts within warehouse management. Because of the maturity of warehouse management systems (WMSs) and functional parity across vendors, warehouse productivity gains have stalled, which is driving the need for new decision support capabilities.

The business impact:

Warehouse resource planning and optimization will help drive higher degrees of warehouse labor and equipment productivity, and help reduce warehouse labor costs. This will come by optimizing work allocation while respecting warehouse physical and human constraints.

Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications. Supply chain leaders use this Hype Cycle to understand the maturity, viability and riskiness of evolving supply chain execution technologies.

We highly recommend checking this research out if you’re a Gartner client with access here.
