Following the success of its first hackathon, “Unlock the future of luxury”, French luxkury goods maker Louis Vuitton organized a second hackathon, this one centered on the supply chain. The event took place from June 17-19 at Ecole 42, a free computer programming school in Paris that does not require a previous degree for admission.

LVMH's hackathon was dubbed “Unlock Supply Chain”. This major challenge immersed participants into LVMH's supply chain. Cross-disciplinary teams of students and recent graduates had 48 hours to meet the challenge set by Louis Vuitton: invent groundbreaking applications to improve management of its supply chain, LVMH said on its website.

Some fifty participants, both model architects and data analysts, applied their expertise to develop ingenious solutions working from raw data and an existing planning platform. The goal was to create a connected, collaborative and dynamic tool that spans distribution, planning and procurement.

After two intensive days that included workshops and input from coaches, the coders presented their work to a jury. Louis Vuitton awarded the winning PLAN!T team a trip and an opportunity to work on a pilot project to put their solution to a real-world test. (SH)
