A Story About a Man and a Dog.......


A Supply Chain Planning and Machine Learning white paper from DynaSys

Over 100 years ago Mark Twain was quoted as saying "A lie will travel half way around the world while the truth is still putting its shoes on". Fast forward to the current world of social-media-connected citizens and this statement sounds blatantly obvious; but it would not have been as apparent a century ago.

The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment." Fast forward to today and this is reality.
