Advancing Inventory Management & Demand Planning

But just because your forecast will probably never be consistently perfect, doesn't mean that you shouldn't strive to achieve the most accurate forecast possible. Indeed better forecasts lead to better business management. And in these challenging economic times is critical that you have good estimates of what will happen in the future. With this information you will have a better idea of what you will sell or use, what products or material to stock, where the best opportunities for success are located and how to plan what resources will be needed. In the first part of this two day workshop we will lead you through the steps necessary to develop a successful, comprehensive demand forecasting program to meet your organization's specific needs. Instruction will be complemented by actual case studies and discussion involving participants'actual challenges.
