The Orlando Wyndham Group is adding cutting-edge mathematics – embedded into powerful new software – to the business of wine-making in a move to grow its operational capacity and global competitiveness.
The wine company is employing these revolutionary software tools to collect, analyse and process the myriad of information streams that feed into key production decisions.
In effect, working with researchers from CSIRO Mathematical and Information Sciences, it is reinventing the way a supply chain is managed. The approach is to replace the conventional, linear-relationship supply chain with a more collaborative approach.
The intention is to eliminate wastage and delays, and to maximise opportunities by having every facet of the supply chain – from vineyard management through to grape delivery through to wine making – managed holistically and collaboratively.
This should mean that significantly less time and money will be lost through waste, or poor decisions caused by inadequate or incomplete information.
