Digitisation of supply chain management processes

The integrated urban water cycle has benefited from the current technological revolution, thanks to the efforts of companies to develop 4.0 solutions and implement them in key processes, such as the supply chain

The current digital transformation has given rise to a process of change not witnessed since the First Industrial Revolution. New solutions and technologies are emerging on a daily basis to facilitate our work and enable interactions and functionalities that could previously only be imagined. Companies and public authorities are also going through this process of change and benefitting from it. The transition to a digital model has enabled an infinite number of processes to be enhanced and paved the way for a new model of efficiency.

Integrated urban water cycle management has also benefited from the optimisation of these processes. As new opportunities and capacities emerge, they bring with them new challenges that require effective, innovative solutions. The integrated urban water cycle is currently facing three great challenges: to guarantee maximum efficiency, to maintain a firm commitment to sustainability, and to assimilate and adapt to the unstoppable digital transformation. The supply chain, a vital part of the integrated urban water cycle, is not isolated from these challenges.

LOGISTIUM is the SUEZ group company in Spain that specialises in the management of the supply of materials and products for the integrated urban water cycle. It is a leader in process digitisation in the sector. LOGISTIUM’s commitment to the digital revolution is based on three key areas: Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and Data Management.

The emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) have broadened and accelerated possibilities for the digitisation and automation of processes. LOGISTIUM has standardised the use of robotics technology for the automation of certain processes, a key first step in the subsequent future implementation of AI for faster and more efficient management of a far wider range of processes. IoT solutions applied to specific restocking projects for materials and products operate in a similar way to make these cycles fully automated.

Digitisation has also enabled advanced data management and optimisation of all elements of managed processes. Efficient data structuring is of great benefit to final clients as it gives them quick and easy access to quality information for decision-making purposes.

The future of the water sector lies in the adoption of digital models that will make it more efficient, secure and sustainable. In this transition, the digital solutions of companies such as LOGISTIUM will play the leading role. Thanks to LOGISTIUM’S firm commitment to digital transformation and innovation, the integrated urban water cycle is now far more secure, efficient and eco-friendly.
