The Future of Planning

It is 2030.

Cradling his coffee i his lap, Russ turns on his computer and says,  "Good morning May. How did we do last night?" The voice activated planning system replies, "Russ, we did well. I was able to resolve 52 discrepancies and expedite 77 shipments. I noted forty-one possible shortages next week and updated the production schedules in 11 facilities. Product 2008 is selling briskly. We face two additional days of out-of-stocks. I am printing the discrepancies that I need for you to look at today. Let me know when you are ready to get started."
