Create Responsive Supply Plans That Truly Deliver

Armed with DemandCaster supply chain planning software, you can advance the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process with accurate supply plans that keep your financial and service objectives in harmony. Turn on a dime to address supply and capacity constraints. And proactively identify and manage gaps between demand and supply.

  • Set inventory targets and plan supply by level loading or chasing demand.
  • Automatically translate the monthly demand plan into a responsive supply plan for distribution, manufacturing, and replenishment — producing weekly/daily supply plans across all locations.
  • Anticipate resource bottlenecks by running requirement and capacity reviews and configure alerts for replenishment actions.
  • Perform “what-if” analysis to model different supply planning scenarios.
  • Easily build a master production or purchasing schedule (MPS), by location, item, and component, and then generate the master requirements plan (MRP). Gain the option to push the MPS or MRP to your ERP or execute from within DemandCaster.
  • Save time and boost accuracy by accessing critical supply data directly from your ERP.

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.

“With DemandCaster forecasting, we can ‘see to the future,’ and it was a very big eye-opener on how we manage our supply.”

Stacey Sommers, Customer Service Manager/Demand Planner, PetroChoice
