Service Optimization & Demand Planning
Service and Inventory analysis
An analysis within forecasting and inventory aims at showing the potential of raising service and/or reducing capital tied up in stock through a new process and a new application. Based on actual customer data (demand statistics, inventory levels etc.) and given market strategies we use optimization to find the right solution where capital is used optimally. This means that the service level is optimized and the capital tied up in stock is minimized whilst taking into account given planning rules for the company. Part of the delivery is also calculation of forecasts based on the right forecasting method.
Implementation of Forecasting and Demand Planning process
In many cases a good demand planning is all about combining quantitative, statistical calculations of forecasts with a good process for collecting market intelligence. This is both concerning trade promotions and demand adjustments. Optilon works with standard applications within these areas. Thanks to these market leading tools and our competence we develop and implement processes that meet our customer's demand's and wishes.
Implementation of Service Optimization and Replenishment process
To reduce capital tied up in stock through cutting inventory is a goal for almost all companies. Optilon works with a standard application that can optimize the service for an entire assortment and based on that define service, and inventory levels for each SKU. To achieve the best possible output from the optimization, replenishment of the warehouse should also be optimized. Optilon carries out project where calculation of inventory levels and replenishment orders are carried out in a market leading inventory optimization tool and exported to the BE to control the inventory levels of the company.
