From http://saffrontech.com/: On the battlefield the challenges the military faces change very, very quickly. During the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan there was a push from the Pentagon to digitize the battlefield, including using real time analytics. Dr. Noel Greis, Director at the Center for Logistics and Digital Strategy at University of North Carolina, explains how an innovative collaboration involving Saffron was able to help Boeing manage the battlefield supply chain using real time data analytics.

Boeing has a very large, defense systems division, and works with the Department of Defense. Boeing contacted Dr Greis at the Center to see if she could help them develop some new tools that will enable them to manage the battlefield supply chain, in real time. A collaboration was put together including a company that did battlefield sensors, and the idea was to sensor up the supply chain.

The key learning from this case study is that anything which currently relies on human judgement for determining when something is needed could be supported by real time analytics, which would verify when materials, goods, and assets are actually required.
