Improve Supply Chain Planning

At the core of supply chain planning lie robust demand, supply and inventory planning capabilities. Companies’ planning objectives vary, but for supply chain planning to deliver measurable business value, the function must grow in maturity. Supply chain planning can advance from reporters of unit volume predictions to facilitators of intentional demand shaping and contributors to margin optimization.

  • What are the best inventory planning practices to find optimal balance between inventory investment and customer service?
  • What are the best practices in supply planning and scheduling?
  • What are the best practices in demand planning?
  • What are the best practices in the formation and management of a supply chain planning organization?
