Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Supply chain forecasting is an important aspect of business operations that can be optimized with machine learning approaches. Machine learning can handle a large amount of data in real time, learn and adapt over time, and improve accuracy, efficiency, and profitability. Various machine learning approaches, such as neural networks, decision trees, random forests, support vector machines, and Bayesian networks, can be applied depending on the requirements of the supply chain and available data. Machine learning has the potential to help businesses make more informed decisions, respond more quickly to changes in demand, and achieve long-term success. Given this context, the Special Issue aims to disseminate insights and encourage a more critical discussion and perspective on practical applications of AI and machine learning in supply chain forecasting, as well as recent advancements in utilizing these emerging technologies. To this end, authors are invited to submit original research articles that address significant issues and contribute to the development of new concepts, methodologies, applications, trends, and knowledge in the field. Additionally, review articles that present the current state-of-the-art are also highly encouraged.
