Demand Planning Optimizing Operations Across The Supply Chain

Demand planning software packages can help manufacturers to:

  1. Establish baseline sales forecasts, incorporating multiple inputs;
  2. Perform sophisticated analysis that improves their use of human and capital resources;
  3. Optimize pricing capabilities; and
  4. Better understand their markets and customers.

Yet to get the most out of these function-rich tools, manufacturers must be willing to reorganize their planning processes—and to share the resulting insights with supply-chain partners and customers.
