Programme outline

With demand volatility on the rise and customer expectations continually evolving due to globalisation, the risks of fragmented business processes and legacy operation management systems are far too great to ignore. Organisations must find ways to continuously plan in real time and leverage new sources of data. This is especially true in supply chain planning. Changes to demand impacts revenue forecasts, inventory plans and working capital. For organisations to thrive, they need the ability to anticipate changes in demand and easily adjust demand and supply plans to avoid shortages, stockouts and excess inventory.

What will you learn?

  • Why legacy supply chain planning tools can’t keep up with today’s constantly changing demands
  • How to create an agile and responsive supply chain organization that can respond quickly to changing market conditions
  • How to more accurately forecast demand, adjust supply, and bring together your S&OP planning with single source of truth
