How integrated sensing, decoupling, and conditioning with AI transforms the planning function
Traditional planning solutions and S&OP don’t connect volatile demand and supply in a meaningful way. The result is the bullwhip: bad forecasts, unstable plans, overstocks, lost sales, and overloaded planners.
The good news is you can now kill the bullwhip by combining AI on the demand side to detect early changes in customer buying behavior with demand-driven planning to quickly mitigate and control supply chain volatility. This approach consistently outperforms traditional planning with significantly lower inventory and higher service levels.
Immediate Impact | Rapid Deployments | Sustainable ROI
In this 60-min webinar, Piet Buyck, CEO at Garvis and Nick Lynch, Head of Customer Success at Orchestr8 explain the powerful combination of Demand Sensing with Demand-Driven planning through real-world examples.
This approach integrates the best possible demand signals and market insights with decoupling and buffer protection to reduce error and bullwhip in even the most complex supply chains. Integration of strategy and execution across all critical supply chain functions yields transformational results and rapid ROI.
