In a market with growing complexity and pressure it is a continuous balancing act to keep product availability high, inventories low and prevent excess & obsolete stock.

Keeping your inventory healthy is not a straightforward task: it requires specific expertise and tools.
In this webinar we introduce the EyeOn Planning Services approach to improve & control inventory health with actionable insights and regularly optimized inventory settings. Illustrated by real-life company cases, you will learn how we create transparency into your current inventory build-up and balance service levels with capital investment.
“Our enrichment process, powered by EyeOn Planning Services, helps us to achieve forecast improvements even in today’s hectic times.” – Tobias Kraft, Customer Demand Manager at AkzoNobel Automotive & Specialty Coatings. Adding market intelligence to a statistical baseline forecast should make the final sales forecast more accurate. However, these ‘enrichments’ often make the forecast worse instead! Best-in-class enrichment processes minimize non-value-adding activities while maximizing the effectiveness of the enrichments being made. In this webinar we highlight how one of our Planning Services customers, AkzoNobel, installed a well-structured and formalized enrichment process to drive true forecast quality, using fit-for-purpose tooling and reporting.
Supply chain processes are changing rapidly. Due to increasing algorithmic possibilities and the use of Advanced planning systems, the role of the human planner changes. But how to design this new planning task, thereby capitalizing on the strengths of both roles, i.e., the planner and the algorithms? Does this mean that we have to take out the human entirely via no-touch planning, or do we still see an added value for the human planner? In this webinar our EyeOn experts provide insights on the role of human planners while executing the planning and forecasting task. Knowledge and experience of human planners provide a valuable contribution in terms of planning accuracy.
Many companies use planning tools that have been implemented several years ago. In current times many companies want to accelerate the use of advanced analytics in their forecasting & planning processes to get grip on the highly evolving environment.

In this webinar we explain how companies can take advantage of advanced analytics instantly, plugged-in to their current APS and ERP tools. Using customer cases we demonstrate how companies buy time to prepare and detail their IT roadmap, while materializing the concrete benefits of advanced analytics as-a-service.
The Covid-19 pandemic has not only impacted businesses and the way we organize our daily activities, also in forecasting & demand management it brought a new challenge: How to generate a meaningful statistical baseline forecast in your planning system, if past demand patterns got heavily disrupted?
In this webinar we introduce the approach EyeOn Planning Services applies to support companies in enhancing their statistical forecasts using “Rubber Duck” and “Tetris correction” logic. Illustrated by a real-life company case, you will learn how to get your forecasts back on track much faster and be better prepared for future demand disruptions.
Demand patterns change over time. The statistical model used for forecasting is only as good as its interpretation of the historical data. When the market is moving fast or your portfolio changes, you need to respond.
Refreshing best-fit statistical forecast models regularly can improve forecast accuracy. But a too frequent change of models results in nervous forecasts over time. The key question is: how often to asses and adapt your statistical forecast models?
