All rights reserved. Our Point of View KPMG IBP Process Framework ■ Forecasting: Delivers unconstrained forecasts to Demand Planning from Sales, Marketing, Product Management, et al using a variety of techniques (pipeline management, promotional forecasting, and co-planning/CPFR) ■ Demand Planning: Uses multiple forecast inputs to create a demand plan aligned with financial goals. Demand Planning refines the plan through a rapid meeting cadence and feeds the approved consensus demand plan to Supply Planning 1.0 Collaborate with Customer 2.0 Generate Forecast 3.0 Manage Demand 1.1 Capture customer key data (i.e. POS, forecast, inventory, etc.) 1.2 Conduct analysis to Identify issues, disconnects, promo impacts, and measure performance 1.3 Refine customer forecasts based on analysis and key events 1.4 Collaborate with customer to align forecast, promo, transitions plans, and resolve issues 1.5 Make commitments to customer 1.6 Track KPIs and highlight on-going issues and root-causes 2.1 Review Assumptions Package 2.2 Create statistical baseline forecast (sell-thru preferred) 2.3 Capture sales pipeline, and create forecast, including event / promotional lifts 2.4 Understand TAM and market trends to create top down Marketing forecast input 2.5 Publish unconstrained forecast(s) to Demand Planning 3.1 Publish Assumption Package 3.2 Identify major changes from previous cycle, and convert sell-thru to sell-in 3.3 Investigate inconsistencies between assumptions and forecasts (i.e. Promos, NPI/EOL) 3.4 Compare and identify major gaps between operational plan vs. financial targets 3.5 Create proposals to close gap with financial plan, if feasible (i.e. promos, price) 3.6 Drive consensus demand planning process 3.7 Track KPIs including plan accuracy and highlight ongoing issues and root causes Forecasting vs. Demand Planning Definitions

Selected, critical collaborative demand planning elements for successful IBP Critical Demand Planning Oversights Leading Practices Consensus demand plan not final before IBP meetings leads to limited focus on decision making and waning executive participation Get demand consensus ahead of IBP meeting • Go through the process – Do not skip steps • Ensure critical inputs and data are validated • Assumptions Package and Consensus Rules A Lack of assumptions package impedes fact-based discussion and encourages arguing about the “numbers” Forecast based on published assumptions • Make documented assumptions explicit and available to all early in the IBP process B Lack of consensus demand planning business rules to apply against multiple demand inputs bogs down process Define consensus demand planning business rules • Include exception based ‘guardrails’ • Refine based on continual planning performance analysis C
