Take the Guesswork Out of Production

With DemandCaster supply chain planning software, you’ll always know precisely what, when, where, and how much to produce for every customer while optimizing capacity, efficiency, and cost savings.

  • Easily translate the demand plan into labor, machine hours, and material requirements.
  • Create multiple “what if” scenarios to accommodate potential capacity constraints to spot short- and long-term shortfalls and bottlenecks and make adjustments on the fly.
  • Rely on algorithms and manual overrides that make it easy to prioritize customer orders and align supply and fulfillment with your financial objectives.
  • Optimize inventory at all levels of BOMs by exploding finished goods forecasts to the component-level.
  • Produce a master production schedule (MPS), and an MRP, based on a chase demand or level loading strategy, that encompasses all manufacturing facilities.
  • Leverage ERP data to continually optimize your plan based on current material and capacity constraints as well as your daily supply chain and shop floor performance.

Reporting & Analytics

Speed smarter decisions with customizable reports and leverage advanced, forward-looking analytics (e.g., inventory classification and segmentation, lead time, stocking, etc.) to create one-to-one relationships between your customers and your supply chain. Included in all DemandCaster software.

“What is important to us is the ability to reflect our capacity and work center realities. Both infinite and finite capacity planning are necessary to be able to ensure that you’re on top. We couldn’t find that anywhere but DemandCaster.”

Steve Kase, President and CEO, ASK Power
