YOUR JOURNEY TO THE WORLD OF DEMAND-DRIVEN ADAPTIVE ENTERPRISES
Discover a world where companies transform their supply chain performance and autonomously respond to demand without the need for high levels of forecast accuracy.
Lead time reduction of 85%
Many companies today say they are demand driven. However, in practice, they manage their supply chains using a process from a bygone era that is totally dependent for its success upon high levels of forecast accuracy.
The process uses forecasts of future demand to tell suppliers and factories what, when and how much to supply, make and move. However, these forecasts are always wrong and for most products by more than 50%. And in today’s ever more volatile markets, serviced by ever more complex supply chains, efforts to improve forecast accuracy are doomed to expensive failure.
50% less inventory
The alternative: Demand-Driven Supply Chain Management (DDSCM) enables companies to become truly demand driven and achieve their planned service levels at lower costs from up to half the average stock and with no requirement for highly accurate forecasts.
The culmination of full implementation of all components of DDSCM is the Demand-Driven Adaptive Enterprise (DDAE). It is the way that successful businesses will work in the 21st Century. CAMELOT guides you on your demand-driven journey from precisely wrong to precisely right. From strategy development to implementation in SAP software (through Camelot ITLab).
