Forecasting…what’s the secret?

Which forecasting technique will produce the most appropriate forecast results for a given demand profile? Deciding the right balance and assortment of stock-keeping units across multiple warehouses can be a bewildering task. Regularly monitoring and forecasting the correct level of inventory across tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of items without the right tool is enough to make even the best of supply managers capitulate.

 

Demand Classification

Demand Classification is a systematic, logically founded method of ascertaining and clustering the characteristics of sales history into groups, before applying the most appropriate forecasting techniques automatically. Classification enables a significant improvement in forecast accuracy with less effort and light-years ahead of the traditional ‘pick best’ approach.

RESEARCH: 20% Online Christmas Sales Being Lost to Rivals Due to Stock Outs and Delivery Time Constraints (JDA - Centiro Christmas Customer Pulse 2017)
 

Increasingly savvy Christmas shoppers are looking to use the channels that best suit their budget and lifestyle. Consequently, findings from a new JDA/Centiro study have revealed that consumers will quickly take their custom elsewhere if faced with stock outs and unsuitable delivery times.
 
Report Highlights
- 12% of UK adults online said they used an alternative retailer because their preferred retailer did not have items available online.
- 7% shopped with an alternative retailer because delivery times failed to meet their requirements.
- Overall, Click & Collect issues have decreased slightly compared with previous year.
- Of those consumers who experienced issues, over 1 in 5 consumers received a damaged item.
- Click & Collect usage plateaus, but the gap narrows between cost and convenience.

3D printing and the future of Supply Chains
 

DHL released its latest DHL Trend Report today - 3D Printing and the Future of Supply Chains. DHL has been testing a variety of both 3D printing hardware and techniques for several years and has identified applications that have potential to redefine manufacturing and supply chain strategies. While the 3D printing market is estimated to grow between US$180 billion and US$490 billion by 20251, the report however finds it will not become a substitute for mass-production but a complementary process.

RESEARCH: JDA & WMG, University of Warwick Study Reveals Most European Manufacturers
 

European manufacturers are failing to effectively use data and analytics when it comes to supply chain planning and segmentation, according to a new report from JDA Software Group, Inc., and WMG, at the University of Warwick. The ‘Supply Chain Segmentation: A Window of Opportunity for European Manufacturing’ report surveyed 100 manufacturing organisations across Europe to benchmark their supply chain segmentation practices. The report revealed that only 18 per cent of respondents considered historic, present and future data in the supply chain planning process, while only 39 per cent of respondents stated that their segmentation models were data-driven. In fact, nearly a quarter (23 per cent) of organisations stated they simply utilise ‘rules of thumb’ over any kind of data-driven methodology.
