Retail Supply Chain at Target Scale
Monday, December 3, 2018 - 9:00am - 10:00am
Target is a unique retailer with a large and complex supply chain network supporting a diverse set of SKUs that it offers in store across the US and online. Making this network efficient entails solving multiple interconnected optimization problems using techniques in stochastic modeling and optimization, algorithm development and scaling, and artificial intelligence. This talk will give an overview of our approach as well as some examples in inventory management optimization, space planning and transportation, and software design using functional programming.
