Setting the Foundation for Supply Chain Success
Are you frustrated with creating supply chain plans that are divorced from reality? Join the club. At Orchestr8 our solution helps companies condition their supply chain by analyzing demand profiles and setting inventory targets that lead to more realistic Sales & Operations Plans. And that sound foundation means the execution process runs within the plan – creating a much simpler, self-managing process.
Continuous Improvement across the Full Product Lifecycle
As with any conditioning, it’s an ongoing process with monthly and annual reviews. Conditioning allows the supply chain to autonomously respond to demand at each inventory level through demand profile analysis and replenishment technique selection, as well as calculation of rate and stock targets.
Customers benefit from supply chain conditioning since it:
- Promotes continuous improvement by Identifying and managing operational actions to address service or cost drivers
- Improves capacity planning and visibility
- Increases awareness of product life cycle by reducing obsolescence and improving focus on new product introduction process
Extending S&OP to include inventory buffers and the selection of the correct planning rules ensures the daily operation is more tightly linked to the plan. And that results in greater efficiencies and reduced inventory. Contact us to learn more about optimizing your inventory planning rules and targets.
