  • (1888PressRelease) May 03, 2013 - This two day workshop will provide you with a clear understanding of how to do demand planning and forecasting well.

    It will demonstrate best practice approaches and assist you in tailoring those approaches to deliver benefits for your business. The key to success in demand planning is collaboration both within and outside the enterprise because no one --individual and/or function-- has all the information needed to make a good forecast and plan. This is why over the last two decades or so the forecasting process has evolved within the enterprise from a silo to consensus process to Sales and Operation Planning (S&OP) and outside the enterprise to Collaborative, Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR).

    In this workshop, we will discuss why collaboration is needed, and what are the key ingredients of successful collaborative processes? We will also describe steps to be followed for implementing a successful collaborative process. Collaborative Planning, particularly CPFR has a unique set of standards and requirements that are necessary for building a sustainable partnership between you and your customer.

    Key Learning:
    - Identifying the best tools and systems that can increase the demand forecast accuracy
    -Boosting up your demand forecast accuracy to improve customer service and achieve better inventory management
    -Discovering the impact of current environment to demand forecasting
    -Achieving consensus in your sales & operations planning through effective two way communication
    -Measuring your current demand forecast performance to support a strategic demand forecast plan
    -Mapping up the most effective demand planning strategy
