The forecast is the starting point in the balance between supply and demand in the supply chain. Production is often required to meet demand via overstock, urgent purchasing, production shifts, etc. For sales, forecasts are prepared for sales revenue and profit often causing manufacturing to suffer due to sales centered quality forecasts. Making the forecasting process transparent and information consistent is critical to reducing the negative impact on manufacturing. Join us at this session to learn how to involve manufacturing in the forecasting preparing process, fostering cohesion instead of challenge and confrontation.
