Planning for Complexity and the Predictability of Demand | 2014 IBF Supply Chain Planning Conference

545

Published on

Presented by Ben YoKell, Principal of the Demand Planning Intelligence Consortium at Chainalytics and Sridhar Bashyam, Director of Supply Chain Planning at Frito Lay North America, on 25 February 2014 during IBF's Supply Chain Planning Conference in Scottsdale, AZ.

Product life cycles are growing shorter, and consumers continue to ask for more choices. For many organizations, the increased number of SKUs and item locations means more complex demand planning. Conventional wisdom says that increased complexity means lower forecast accuracy and larger bias, yet Frito-Lay Inc. has demonstrated otherwise. Taking a closer look at the behavior of demand signals yields a new understanding of demand planning performance expectation and potential. In this session, the presenters will highlight practices they’ve used to build a high-performing demand planning environment, including the use of a data-based analytics service from Chainalytics, which measures portfolio forecastability and quantifies improvement opportunity for specific demand segments.

Attendees will learn:
- How Frito-Lay’s direct-to-store model affects demand planning
- A practical framework for demand segmentation
- Why advanced analytics are key to measuring, understanding, and improving demand planning performance

  15. 15. Demand Planning Benchmarking Benefits of Benchmarking  Accuracy and bias benchmarking vs. relevant demand  Use of demand segmentation and forecastability concepts – Region accuracy target setting – Assessing opportunities for accuracy improvements “How am I doing overall?” “How difficult is my portfolio to plan to for?” “How well should I be doing for my level of portfolio difficulty?” “How well could I be doing for my level of portfolio difficulty?” “Where should I focus my energy and attention?” 15

  19. 19. How difficult is my environment to forecast? Segmentation provides an understanding of each portfolio, which drives demand planning performance potential as much (or more) as complexity. 19
  20. 20. How am I doing? Forecastability-Based Intelligence Forecast Accuracy Forecast Accuracy Conventional DPIC Forecastability Index™ Forecastability yields a very different conclusion! 20
  21. 21. How well could I be doing? Targets can be set with more realism by customizing for the specific demand portfolio, and should be differentiated: “One Size Does Not Fit All.” 21
  22. 22. Some Frito-Lay DPIC Findings  Frito-Lay is a top performer, both overall and in segmented analytics results  This is in contrast to assumptions around high complexity  Top performance results stems from good process, great execution, and relatively high demand forecastability Forecastability + Process Design & Execution > Complexity  Room still exists for improvement; even a top overall performer has segments of the business with opportunity 22
  23. 23. What’s Next for Frito-Lay Demand Planning  Continue our membership in the consortium – Work on opportunity areas presented by survey results  Add new causals to our SAS models  Leverage point of sale data  Continue to explore new technologies such as demand sensing  Grow our modeling team into a Forecasting Center of Excellence (COE) 23
