SCRt CIWG - Sales Forecast Planning

SCRt CIWG - Sales Forecast Planning

SIRF Roundtables presents
Supply Chain Roundtable
Common Interest Workgroup
Sales Forecast Planning
Hosted by: Bluescope
SIRF Roundtables in Queensland currently comprises in excess of 40 progressive organisations that are willing to network and share their best practices in a peer to peer learning environment, specialising in Operational Excellence and Industrial Maintenance.

‘Common Interest Work Group’ (CIWG) events are for technical specialists looking to discuss with peers, specific topics they are working on, in and around their field of excellence.
Sales forecasting is one of the hot buttons for Supply Chain management. At our recent inaugural meeting for the SCRt, this came out as the big issue for the group.

There are so many tools available, yet still a large number of organisations still suffer with poor outcomes in this area. Maybe it is time to accept that this is just an impossible task.

However the issue for supply chain managers, is still the same in that they have to give forecasts to their suppliers, and ensure stock availability to meet changing demands.

Key discussions on the day will be:
 - How are companies measuring up in regards to forecast accuracy?
 - Where does the responsibility sit?
 - What mitigation strategies are we utilising?
 - What are we doing to improve accuracy?
 - How are we managing changes?

It should be a great discussion, focused on positive improvement outcomes.

Supply chain managers, Planning & forecasting, Purchasing, Sales & Warehousing professionals
