Demand Planning

Delivers advanced statistical analysis and collaborative demand management that coordinate forecasts across products, customers, groups, and multiple units of measure. Smart Demand Planner automatically selects the right forecast model for each item, accounting for trend, seasonality, and promotion/event-driven demand. Dozens of forecast models are available including user-defined approaches. Collaborative forecasting functionality supports consensus forecasting, allowing users to access their forecasts and apply forecast overrides. Forecasts can be reviewed by the lead demand planners for consensus planning; forecasting errors and bias are tracked, helping to identify how each step in the process influences performance.

Demand Planning

Automatic Statistical Forecasting

  • Account for trends, seasonality, and intermittency out of the box without configuration.

Consensus Planning

  • Compare statistical, customer, and sales forecasts so you can easily agree on the consensus plan.

Multi-level Hierarchies

  • Forecast items, product groups, families, and customers. Apply changes to one level and forecasts are automatically reconciled throughout all levels of the hierarchy.

Accuracy Reporting

  • Track forecast errors and bias across all forecasts that were considered. Identify whether business overrides are adding value.

Inventory Optimization

Automatically identify the targeted service levels and inventory policy that minimizes holding, ordering, and stock-out costs. Smart Inventory Optimization (SIO™) is available on Smart’s Inventory Planning and Optimization Platform, Smart IP&O. It delivers inventory policy decision support and the means to share, collaborate, and track the impact of your inventory planning policy. The optimization engine evaluates projected performance and costs, identifying overstocking and understocking. Users can adjust parameters or rely on SIO's recommendations. Proposed policies are shareable and comparable. The agreed plan integrates into Sage for replenishment.
