During this hour, we will use the powerful “what if” planning capabilities of IBP to demonstrate forecast changes impact inventory and overall supply capacity. Our hosts will review the key inputs to Inventory Optimization, showing the results of an inventory optimization. A simulated forecast change will then be passed to Supply Planning where an unconstrained supply plan will show the weekly resource impacts on capacity. Numerous inventory and supply related analytics, and Excel-based supply alerts will also be demonstrated.
IBP is a fully integrated and complete tool for business planning, and with the Inventory and Supply modules, planners can effectively set target stock levels based on demand.
