Central Jersey APICS  Presents:

"The Lean Demand Forecasting Process - Really!"

Speaker:  Janice Gullo, CPFIM, CSCP,SCOR-P, CPF 

Matching demand with supply depends on the coordination of plans from Marketing & Sales with those in Operations. Better known as Demand Management, the robustness of the process sets the pace of the entire supply chain. When the forecast is always wrong how can we make it less wrong? Inaccuracy in the demand forecast is the leading cause for excess inventory. Stock outs due to inaccurate forecasts cause waste throughout the supply chain. The elimination of defects and waste are opportunities for continuous improvement.

3 Things you will learn:

  • A brief overview – Lean Six Sigma

  • How using Lean and Six Sigma methodologies can reduce the waste in the demand management process to improve forecast accuracy

  • Learn how to make the forecast less wrong!

 

3 Take-aways:

  • Understanding of Demand Management

  • How to recover from inaccurate forecasts

  • Continuous improvement within your organization
