Demand Management in a Demand Driven Supply Chain
In today’s environment where customers, needs, markets and product portfolios change rapidly; planning the future based on historical data alone is simply not good enough. Demand-driven supply chain management is less likely to be negatively affected by procurement and supply disruptions, demand variability and volatility, short product lifecycle, and frequent new product releases.
Learn how demand-driven supply chains are capable to identify customer needs and use point of sale data; sensing actual demand to provide an adequate response through demand-driven supply chain processes and providing customers with high service levels without holding high inventory levels and incurring in high fulfillment costs.
By the end of this course, that is part of the edX Professional Certificate program to become a Certified Forecaster and Demand Planner (CFDP), you will be able to apply demand-driven supply chain techniques and approaches That include: Demand sensing, demand signal management, data analysis, demand shaping, automated inventory replenishment programs, and Demand Driven Materials Requirement Planning - DDMRP.
CFDP certified professionals are globally preferred by recruiters for decision making positions because they can improve demand planning business processes, implementing collaborative practices that include both providers and retailers to integrate the global supply chain.
