FORECASTING 101
Event ID: 101421
Desciption:
How many times have you heard someone say “Forecasting is a great idea but you just can’t forecast our business”? The problem with this statement is that it is just not true. While you may not have a formal forecasting process in place someone, probably several someone’s are busy forecasting (guesstimating) just so they can do their job. Do you have a budget? That is a forecast. Do you buy material? That is based on a forecast. Hire new people, enter into transportation contracts, buy new machinery … All based on a forecast. If not a formal forecast then an informal one. Forecasting is like breathing- we all do it but rarely think about it. So what is forecasting? According to the APICS dictionary it is “An estimate of future demand…” In other words it is someone’s best guess of what is going to happen. The companies that do this best, survive and grow, while their competition does not. The purpose of this presentation is to talk about the basics of formal forecasting. What is it, why do it, how to do it, and most importantly, how complicated does the process need to be? The good news is that a forecasting process does not need to be complicated. Indeed, most companies have a far more complicated process than they really need to. So whether you currently forecast or not, this discussion is for you. Join us for the April 01 PDM and see how to help improve your companies efficiency, effectiveness, profitability and potential future.

What Drives Inventory in Your Supply Chain
Event ID: 101420
Desciption:
Inventory ‘the life blood’ of the supply chain is a ‘necessary evil’ to support the imbalance between supply and demand- inventory drivers are the root cause of this imbalance. The goal of inventory management is to ensure the consistent delivery of the right part, in the right quantity, to the right place at the right time. The objective is to do this without carrying excess and obsolete inventory or lowering customer service levels. Is your organization guilty of setting inventory levels using simple math, rules of thumb, or SWAG without a full understanding of the factors that drive inventory levels or whether they are consistent with your existing inventory policies? The reality is that the drivers of inventory are not apparent and planners may have no understanding of why inventory is at certain levels or which driver’s increase or decrease inventory and to what extent.

SALES INVENTORY AND OPERATIONS PLANNING (SIOP)
Event ID: 101411
Desciption:
Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) is an integrated business process developed in the 1980s by Oliver Wight and described by Tom Wallace as a set of decision-making processes to balance demand and supply. The output of this process includes an updated forecast that leads to a sales plan, production plan, and inventory plan. rnrnNext generation S&OP is about optimizing the inventory plan and making it Sales Inventory and Operations Planning (SIOP), a process for planning inventory based on service level goals instead of traditional inventory planning which leaves the planner to develop simple spreadsheets and rules of thumb such as weeks of supply.rnrnPlanners will define the service level (fill rate) for each stock keeping unit (SKU) and location. SIOP logic determines appropriate algorithms to set safety stocks, reorder points and quantities that will meet user defined service levels at lowest cost.rnrnThis presentation reviews the evolution of S&OP to SIOP and explains the relationship between safety stock and service levels, the steps in the SIOP process for balancing demand and supply, and integration with S&OP process flow.
