Inventory Planning and Optimization

Demand Works Smoothie helps you optimizing inventory investments by segmenting inventories by their forecast ability, source of supply, and what-if scenarios. Smoothie goes beyond standard deviation and root mean squared error to determine optimal replenishment policies.

Smoothie plans inventories through multi-tiered distribution channels with formulations and bill of materials.

Demand Works can suggest ordering quantities and identify shortages and overstocks.

Capacity Planning and S&OP

Sales and operations planning software will help you create highly personalized forecasts that continuously change with your levels, trends, seasonality, and other external events your company may experience. The software uses baseline forecasts, historic sales, and backlogs to give better signals to the company.

An option module, Finite Capacity Planning, will let you connect material requirements to resources.
