Demand Planning and Inventory Management
Setting inventory levels that meet customer demand is a key challenge that organizations face today. A key concern for manufacturers and retailers is reducing inventory and the costs associated with it. Demand Planning and Inventory Optimization help businesses control inventory driven costs and address demand volatility and supply chain complexity.
Many businesses in India are reaching a size and level of complexity (number of SKUs, product introductions, promotions, demand volatility, multiple trade channels, multi site and multi echelon networks) where demand planning and inventory management cannot be an MS Excel based operation or based on gut feels an assumptions.
The challenge these businesses face is that using Technology to support this process is full of risk because cost of projects is large, internal talent and process maturity to use the technology is low, payback on investments can take several years, and ongoing changes in business mean that Tools have to be recalibrated on an ongoing business which in the end makes the system less efficient.
