Demand Chain Optimization

Managing the demand chain, from manufacturers through wholesalers, distributors and retailers and onto consumers, is a daunting task.

The numbers of Stock Keeping Units, outlets, supply sources, seasons and product characteristics are huge, and the degree of complexity in the supply chain is challenging. Creating efficiency in the demand chain requires a combination of art and science.

We need sound, scientifically-based replenishment methodologies, which incorporate statistical and operations research techniques, to analyze the richness of contemporary databases and to deduce patterns, trends, variabilities and the dynamics of customer demands. Such scientific techniques enable us to balance the various costs—inventory, transportation, handling, warehousing and other direct and indirect labor—while simultaneously providing optimal services for customers.

This balancing act requires timely and accurate data coupled with the appropriate analytical techniques. At the same time, we must consider the delicate industrial practices associated with specific cultures and organizational behaviors, the constraints created by environmental factors, the impact of external factors and the influence of specific individuals in different industry sectors.

In this white paper, you will learn how to avoid the common pitfalls and how to reap the benefits of demand chain management. The principles described will profoundly impact your demand chain. It is gratifying to see that companies that have  mastered demand chain excellence, avoiding the pitfalls and implementing the principles described in this paper, are widening their margin of market leadership and shareholder returns vis-à-vis their competitors. The principles in this paper form the foundation on which they have built their success.

If you are interested in exploring demand chain optimization in greater depth,review the list of additional resources on page 15 of this white paper. Download full white paper below.
