A lot of new technologies are being introduced to reshape many parts of the world. I want to hear from you – what technology will bring most changes to operations management (OM) and why?
You may choose one (or two) from Big Data, Cloud computing, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, Nano Technology, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Self-driving car, IoT, or any thing you heard of related to the 4th generation industrial revolutions (refer to Link (Links to an external site.)). And then, project them onto the OM topics we have covered (e.g., product design, quality control, forecasting, capacity planning, process design, supply chain management, inventory, layout strategy, location strategy, etc.) to describe anticipated changes. Put your claim with clear focus on What? & Why?
