Using Analytics to Determine Walmart’s Future DC Operations

Esmaeel Moradi brings a lot of academic firepower to his role as logistics planning manager for Walmart, and that’s a good thing because it’s a pretty demanding job. Since November 2015, Moradi has worked at the company’s headquarters in Bentonville, AR, focusing on distribution network design, forecasting and data analysis for the nation’s largest retailer and private-sector employer.

Moradi is part of the analytics team that helps Walmart determine how many distribution centers it will need in the future, where those distribution centers should be located, which of the company’s stores should be assigned to those distribution centers, how its transportation network can operate most efficiently, how much of each retail item should be ordered and how those items should enter the distribution chain to best meet demand.

Emerging technologies such as IIoT, robotics and artificial intelligence provide exciting opportunities for supply chains. They also mean an exponential growth in the amount of data these supply chains generate. When properly utilized, this data can provide crucial information to improve efficiency, reduce costs, enhance transparency and customer service. But it comes with risk. The more digitized a supply chain becomes, the more it is at risk of cyberattack. Hackers are constantly finding new ways create data breaches they can exploit. The reality that most supply chains require third-party suppliers down the chain only heightens this threat. No matter the scale of your supply chain, it is essential to have solid cybersecurity processes in place to manage and mitigate the growing risk of cyberattack. That’s what this issue of MHI Solutions is all about, from cybersecurity threats in an IIoT world to dark data to the human factor in cybersecurity to blockchain as a potential solution.
