Today Ali Raza, founder and CEO at Throughput Inc., joins me to chat all about exactly what Throughput does, the importance of visibility, harnessing the power of AI and the future of effective supply chains.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
[07.25] Ali’s background and his journey across industries and countries to eventually found Throughput.
“We can prepare better, by having a more global perspective.”
[10.13] A closer look at Throughput: its foundations, what it does and how it helps its customers.
“Why don’t we have technologies today that help us get into the analytics on the operations side to make the right decisions, and scale it?”
[18.26] Ali’s reflections on visibility and what it means to Throughput, and to supply chain as a whole.
“Everyone’s connecting all the data and saying ‘look at the visibility, now you can see everything’ – but visibility isn’t the same thing as flow.”
[24.09] How Throughput software ‘puts global industrial operations on autopilot.’
“Most businesses make or move stuff so ultimately there’s an output problem, a demand problem and a financial problem. And if you can tie all three of those together and run it in synchrony, you have an autopilot system.”
