Forecast & Plan Demand with Increased Accuracy

In the dynamic world of supply chain management, accurate demand planning is crucial to meet customer expectations, minimize inventory costs, and drive operational efficiency. DELMIA Demand Planning analyzes historical demand and market intelligence to help accurately forecast and determine how to profit from it. Through improved statistical forecasting, users can collaborate more effectively with internal sales teams and external customers and explore demand scenarios to increase sales and organizational efficiency. In addition, demand-sensing provides the ability to revise forecasts immediately whenever market conditions change or new intelligence becomes available. DELMIA Demand Planning statistical forecasting automatically calculates the optimal forecast by analyzing events, trends, and seasonal changes. This process leads to improved collaboration by creating a demand forecast with input across the enterprise - sales, finance, marketing, and other key areas - for simultaneous access to the most up-to-date plan.
