About this paper
Half of all US manufacturers have adopted at least some demand-driven forecasting practices. But are there even bigger financial gains being left on the table without widespread implementation? Better forecasts mean more accurate inventory planning, better customer service, reduction of working capital needed and more. This research report, produced in partnership with IndustryWeek, explores the way manufacturers currently use demand-driven forecasting and planning, as well as what future technology investments and methodologies will yield even more accuracy – and more revenue.
