Supply Chain Roundtable
Common Interest Workgroup
Forecasting - How Good is Your Crystal Ball?
Hosted by Cerebos

SIRF Roundtables in New South Wales currently comprises in excess of 50 progressive organisations that are willing to network and share their best practices in a peer to peer learning environment, specialising in Operational Excellence, Supply Chain 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.

Demand planning is defined as “using forecasts and experience to estimate demand for various items at various points in the supply chain.” It has been said that, “demand planning is the most misunderstood-and most frustrating-of any supply chain planning application.” Understanding the demand for your products is perhaps one of the fundamentals of business success.

Understanding what influences, dictates, affects the demand for products allows for accurate forecasting for future demand.

Who is responsible for the forecasts, what are our products, where are they in their product lifecycle, what is their demand pattern, do we understand the variability/volatility seen in the marketplace, and who is providing the additional information required to ensure an appropriate forecast?

How accurate is your forecasting and ultimately your understanding of product demand? Come along and share your insights with other like minded professionals.

Special presenter Sam Wardill , GRA, Supply Chain Strategy, Planning and Execution Senior Manager, will be presenting insights from his experiences helping organisations like Diageo UK, GSK, Kimberly Clark and Shell improve their demand management processes.

This event is ideal for:

Those involved in forecasting and those impacted by forecasts and those who want to get the process better.
