What you’ll need to know about demand forecasting and inventory optimisation.
Demand forecasting is the process of estimating the quantity of a product that consumers will purchase in a future period and is a critical aspect of inventory planning, as it helps businesses to determine how much inventory to stock and when to order new products.
Inventory optimisation is the process of determining the optimal inventory for a business in order to meet customer demand while minimising costs. Optimisation helps businesses balance the costs of carrying inventory with the costs of stock-outs and lost sales.
Inventory optimisation capabilities, such as reorder point calculations and safety stock analysis, help businesses determine the optimal inventory for each product.
In today's complex market, the use of advanced analytics and machine learning models to optimise inventory levels based on historical data, sales trends and other factors can consider multiple variables such as lead times, safety stock and service level, and use this data to determine the best inventory level for each product to execute more efficient inventory management.
