Inventory & Supply optimization

In a market with growing complexity and pressure you need to keep product availability high and inventories low. This requires a high forecast accuracy but also properly tuned inventory settings, as a forecast will never be perfect.

Actionable inventory insights and optimization techniques allow you to offer a high level of customer service with lower inventory levels. Breakdowns give full transparency on types of inventory and concrete improvement opportunities. Safety stock optimization techniques should include all important factors, like supply uncertainty, replenishment lead times and demand volatility.
