INVENTORY PLANNING

At C&G, we work hand in hand with customers, from consulting to assimilating the planning, forecasting system and process and defining the best organization structure to provide the best planning results

 

OVERCOMING INVENTORY PLANNING CHALLENGES

There is a growing need for inventory optimization due to increases in customer demand, expanding product portfolios and lengthening supply chains.

It can be challenging to get a clear picture of levels of demand, specifically when planning new product launches. Inventory deficits lead of lost sales and poor customer service, while excess inventory harms the company’s working capital and leads to operational inefficiency.

THE PATH TO INVENTORY PLANNING OPTIMIZATION

The supply chain lies at the core of the service strategy, which must achieve the right balance between the service offering, the costs involved, and the inventory generated.

At C&G, we work hand in hand with customers, from consulting to assimilating the planning, forecasting system and process and defining the best organization structure to provide the best planning results. We provide a hands-on service – from consulting to assimilating the planning and forecasting system – staying by the customer’s side until the processes work perfectly
