Collaborative Demand Planning

Collaborative Demand Planning is a combination of rigorous forecasting algorithms to predict future demand, a rich set of ML techniques, including deep neural networks, as well as elaborate collaboration protocols amongst the internal and external stakeholders.

As part of Adexa’s SIOP solutions, demand planning is the very critical first step of S&OP process and generation of “one forecast” that the entire company can support and depend on to satisfy using the supply capacity and inventory available to the company. Adexa collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment (CPFR) solution brings speed, accuracy, and simplicity to demand planning; enabling you to increase revenue, organizational agility, and customer service.

Adexa’s Collaborative Demand Planner offers multiple time horizons for analysis of demand and actionable insight. You can perform short term, medium term or long term demand sensing in order to forecast demand as well as analyze capacity planning and even network design. Furthermore, using advanced machine learning techniques the system offers not just the best fit algorithms but also the best policies to be deployed depending on the attributes of products, customers, and regions amongst others. New policies are also mutated by the system in order to enhance the performance of the system even further.
