Supply and Demand Planning
As markets fragment and supply chains become more complex, effective demand and supply planning is more challenging and more business critical. It is central to effective Integrated Business Planning and the profitable delivery of all your customer commitments.
Iter uses AI based modelling to segment demand and define demand and supply planning strategies that deliver your customer commitment and optimise the efficiency of manufacturing and distribution through existing or new operating models.
Effective supply and demand planning optimises the service to all customers and the use of available manufacturing capacity, delivering the following benefits:
|Working Capital||Service||Operating Costs|
|Inventory minimised to deliver customer commitment whilst enabling efficient production.||Supply plans focused on delivering or exceeding all customer commitments||Planning strategies, and operating models maximising efficiency and cost of manufacture and distribution|
