If your demand planning is efficient and predictable, your results are too, from the first step in your supply chain to the customer who buys your product.

But efficient planning and fulfillment require a holistic view of your entire supply chain.

You need an accurate, data-driven forecast, which delivers inventory levels that sell-through and do not come up short.

Efficient, accurate demand planning equals more profit.

SAS Demand Planning Solutions help you keep inventory in the right place, at the right level, at the right time. When business conditions or customer demands change, you can quickly adjust. This helps to reduce logistics costs, enhances customer satisfaction, and improves your competitive edge.

Your demand forecast drives your integrated business planning (IBP) process and is the largest source of uncertainty.

Improving your demand forecast affects the entire supply chain and has a multiplier effect as it travels along the IBP process. That’s why even marginal forecast improvements have a large proportional effect on revenue, costs, profit, and working capital, as well as customer satisfaction. If the demand forecast is accurate, everything else falls into place.
