Optimize the performance of your supply chain through harmonized planning
More than ever, optimized planning is a key factor for your company’s success. Requirements to be met by supply chain planning are substantial and steadily rising: Complex value chain networks have to be managed, maximum quality and uncompromising delivery quality are expected – in increasingly dynamic markets
In order to hold your own amongst the global competition, you need to guarantee the most efficient possible provision of services. However, inaccurate and out-of-date demand, production and procurement planning in the supply chain result in a less than optimum performance in terms of capacity use, level of service and capital formation.
Central areas for improvement:
- Harmonizing and integrating each planning level with an integrated planning approach
- Improving demand planning and forecasting by integrating point-of-sale data and actively influencing demand (revenue management/demand shaping)
- Linking the push and pull principles as part of LEAN Planning & Scheduling
- Choosing the right planning procedure
- Establishing sensible parameters for stock sizing
