In this Keynote Session on November 16th, Joe Barnes, Daniel Paddon, Tom Shea and Dominic Wigmore-Shepherd from Gousto will discuss The Data-driven Supply Chain.

Session abstract: Gousto is a large meal-kit company which is scaling rapidly. Our objective is to become the UK’s most-loved way to eat dinner. In order to do this we have to grow a state-of-the-art supply chain including forecasting, planning, factories, operations and logistics. Data scientists at Gousto accomplish this in three key ways: by using simulation and experimentation to add evidence to our decision making, and quickly improve our algorithms; by building data products with huge scalability and long-term maintenance as central considerations; and by considering the big picture as well as low-level details to discover low-hanging fruit for optimisation.

Join us for four lightning talks across the hour with an interactive Q and A with our panel of speakers

Talk 1 (Tom Shea): Effective data science at scale, using evidence-based product design, backtesting, and parallel systems - all in the context of building a multi-objective optimisation system for routing orders to fulfilment centres.

Talk 2 (Dominic Wigmore-Shepherd): How Gousto Supply DS plans to move from optimising purely for capacity, to optimising for a wider range of operational objectives to better serve our customers and the business.

Talk 3 (Daniel Paddon): How we simulate the weekly operation of our supply chain in order to investigate future scenarios that we are expecting to find ourselves in.

Talk 4 (Joe Barnes): How we use simulation to model the inner workings of our factories, and how that allows us to embed data into our operational decision making even when we aren’t able to run physical experiments.
