  14. 14. 14© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Demand Streams • Breaking out demand streams allows better management of the demand plan • Statistical forecast where applicable • Intelligent schedules where applicable • CRM based project forecasts where applicable • Breaking out demand streams allows you to assign accountability • It won’t improve unless a specific person is responsible and accountable • Measure accuracy at this level in the demand cycle of S&OP
  15. 15. 15© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Holding Accountability to Demand Plan
  16. 16. 16© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. A Common Organizational Challenge! In Order to improve Demand Planning, I need to hold someone accountable for the demand plan! Why is this so difficult?
  17. 17. 17© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Accountability • Need to measure demand plan on something that is not a shared result: • Bookings - Output of Sales/Marketing(Demand Side) • Shipments – Result of demand (orders) and supply (inventory, production) • Need to measure at a level of responsibility • Region • Customer • Distribution/Direct • Breaking out demand streams allows you to assign accountability • It won’t improve unless a specific person is responsible and accountable • Measure accuracy at this level in the demand cycle of S&OP
  18. 18. 18© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Accountability Includes Measurement of Change • Need ability to see change in plan (month over month) • Drill down as required to see what caused change: • product/customer/demand planning role • Accountability not only includes accuracy but net change • Tie measurement back to supply capability What is the impact of downturn in demand one month out?
  19. 19. 19© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Example Customer: Program Objectives and Deliverables

  21. 21. 21© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Use Statistical Forecast to Improve Demand
  22. 22. 22© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Normal Vs. Abnormal Demand • Normal Demand – past performance (mix and volume) is a good indicator of Future Forecast - FLOW • Statistical forecast based on history • Modified by future plans – promotion, price change, new markets • Abnormal Demand – a single transaction drives a significant portion of business - PROJECT • Past sales are not an indication of future sales – lumpy demand – Forecast on a case by case basis – Use an Opportunity ManagementProcess - CRM • Historical mix ratios will not apply • May include more than one product family “Manage” the Projects - “Forecast” the Flow.
  23. 23. 23© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Normal Vs. Abnormal Demand • Types: • Flow vs. Project • MRO vs. Project • Flow vs. New Distribution Center • Domestic vs. Large Export • Regular vs. Lumpy • Trying to statistically forecast the right hand side is extremely difficult and may give misleading results • Break the demand planning into the different inputs and run forecast against items on the left Keep in Mind: You will most likely have different fulfillment strategies based on the type of demand.
  24. 24. 24© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Identifying Abnormal Demand • Determine the “size” of opportunity that is abnormal • Evaluate historical bookings to determine order size relative to volume • Find the balance between: – Number of opportunities – Large opportunities that upset the normal supply flow If in doubt, pick a lower number of opportunities to manage.
  25. 25. 25© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Statistical Forecast Analysis • Understandthe quality of the demand data, i.e. active periods, sparse, etc. • Generatemultiple hierarchy level forecasts and analyze results • Understandthe forecast error by levels, i.e. MAPE and Weighted MAPE • Assess the forecast growth and inflation • Recommend the optimal forecast level
  26. 26. 26© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Product Segmentation Analysis – Demand Policy Take the efficient approach - Understand complexity and its impacts Volatility Impact Statistical Forecast Collab & Exception Stocking Strategy: Min/Max, Safety Stock, etc

  28. 28. 28© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Collaboration
  29. 29. 29© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Why Collaboration? Demand Planning is an Integral Part of S&OP. S&OP is a collaborative process to arrive at a balanced demand and supply plan. Using collaboration to arrive at Demand Planning provides a better signal to the S&OP/IBP process S&OP Strategic Plan Master Schedule Demand Plan Production and Material Plan Three to five year strategic plan for the family. Typically updated annually 12 month or more, rolling plan from the family. Updated monthly 12 month or more, rolling demand plan for the family. Updated monthly Detailed schedule for specific items in the family. Authorized by the S&OP production plan. Typically updated daily or weekly. Detailed production and material plans linked directly to the master schedule. S&OP
  30. 30. 30© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Why Collaboration is important? • Demand Planning is about predicting future results. • Because we are dealing with the future, by definition we will be wrong! • You want to use the best information possible to develop the demand plan – pull in from multiple sources. • Examples of Collaboration • Customer Collaboration • Partner Collaboration • Internal Collaboration – Multi-level demand plan – Vertical integration

  37. 37. 37© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Real Time Visibility Across the Business • Demand Planning is one key input to S&OP Process. • Needs to support an S&OP process that is: • Run on a regular monthly cadence • Establishing clear accountability for all plans (demand and supply) • Looking at business by product family – across demand and supply • Link demand plans and supply constraints • A learning process – monthly feedback and continuous improvement • Include Key Business Levers – Bookings,Backlog, Shipments, Inventory,Supply (Production) • Supported by common definitions across the business
  38. 38. 38© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Best Practice Enabled by Technology • Single version of the Truth – from across multiple systems • CRM, Orders, Forecast, Collaborative Demand view • Integration to Finance (Monthly Financial Plan) • Visibility of Budget in process • Measurementof gap to Budget • Use S&OP process to inform budget • Ability to convert between units and dollars – will tell two different stories • Earn and report in dollars – make and sell in units • Ability to analyze data to determine RCA on out of tolerance plans and recognize bias • Capabilityto drill down below family to lower level drivers/issues • Linked to system of record – aligned to execution plan
  39. 39. 39© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential. Holistic View – Supported by Collaborative Process • Need to view Demand Planning as an input to the overall demand and supply balancing process • Tools need to support integration and timely data access • Eliminate the time required to consolidate and manage data – Utilize this time for analysis
  40. 40. 40© 2014Steelwedge Software, Inc. Confidential.
