Our offer > Demand & Supply Planning

Planning is a vital tool to meet clients’ requirements, while controlling production and inventory costs. Planning is especially essential to give the adequate visibility to long time suppliers. Symptoms associated to a discrepancy or even a lack in the planning process are usually very costly for the company: bad service rate (something leading to losing the business of unsatisfied customers), inadequate capacity compared to the demand, late raw material or components reception, high-level of stock to mitigate the lack of coordination…

In light of this, companies often come up with the following questions:  

  • How to improve visibility on future activity?
  • On what basis and how far ahead should the forecasts be estimated?
  •  What should be the commitment on delivery ensuring that I will be able to hold the date?
  • What type of planning process implement and at what level?
