Precise forecasting and integrated business planning
Retail Excellence Trend #2
Accurate forecasts using historical data and smart analysis algorithms provide a solid foundation for small inventories and lower costs. Integrated business planning unites the strategic, tactical, and operative planning processes in a system environment such as SAP.
Strategic planning includes the business planning: the determination of the network nodes to be planned such as sales locations, warehouses, production plants, and suppliers; the financial and budget planning, and strategic sourcing of production capacities.
Tactical planning consolidates all information relevant for the sales plan and, in the process of comparing demand and supply, creates a feasible plan taking into account goals defined internally. Sales & operations execution includes customer order management, operational scheduling, and production fine planning and processing. As a result, companies can make their entire value chain transparent end-to-end and react quickly and flexibly to changes.
