AI for Global Manufacturers

Dramatically increase manufacturing throughput, supply chain efficiencies, and services revenue using AI at enterprise scale.

Global manufacturers today must build a digital transformation strategy while facing a combination of business forces

Lack of end-to-end supply network visibility

High inventory costs and low service levels

Need to transform to service business models

Slow and manual data analysis processes

These market complexities put pressure on profit margins and growth. Manufacturers are looking to overcome these challenges via digital transformation strategies that utilize IoT and AI. To date, such efforts have faced significant integration challenges and proven hard to operationalize at enterprise scale, and therefore seldom evolve beyond a pilot. This has led to long delays, mixed results, elusive ROI, and haphazard progress.


The C3 AI Suite enables manufacturers to rapidly deliver enterprise AI applications that leverage existing applications and data

The C3 AI Suite provides the necessary, comprehensive services for organizations to build enterprise-scale AI applications 25x to 100x faster than alternative approaches. The C3 AI Suite enables manufacturers to rapidly integrate data from any/all enterprise systems, operational sources, sensor networks, and external providers to power machine learning models that generate predictive insights and solve previously unsolvable problems. Many large, global manufacturers are already using the C3 AI Suite to drive their digital transformation efforts, generating results such as: reducing inventory stocks by as much as 35%, lowering waste due to quality defects by over 20%, and generating $100’s of millions in economic value annually.

C3.ai Applications for Manufacturing

Inventory Optimization

Reduce inventory holding costs, improve cash flow and supply chain visibility, and increase the productivity of inventory analysts. C3 Inventory Optimization applies advanced machine learning to analyze variability in demand, supplier delivery times, quality issues, and product line disruptions to build real-time recommendations and monitoring, so users can set optimization by confidence level and receive real-time notifications and root cause analysis. Global manufacturers have deployed C3 Inventory Optimization to decrease inventory levels by 35%.
