Many possibilities fr AR applications in supply chain
prabhakar_deosthali   11/18/2014 12:53:03 AM

There seems to be N number of possibilities where AR could be replacing the conventional methodology .


I just thought about the inspection process at each point of transfer in the supply chain.

Currently a lot of time and effort is required at every stage of the supply chain in inspection of the goods  - 1, at the factory gate 2. at the check posts on roads, railstations, airports, 3. At customs  4. at the customer and so on.


With AR application such checks would be possible without the need to physically see the goods , without having the hardcopy packing list and so on.


So the good once packed from the originating location need not be opened, unpacked, unloaded, reloaded .. till they reac their final destination.
