Chardon, Ohio August 15, 2013- Today, e2b teknologies, developers of Anytime Supply Chain, an enterprise-class sales forecasting and DRP/MRP supply chain management software, announces the release of the company’s latest white paper. The white paper, entitled “Sales Forecasting Best Practices and Their Impact on DRP and MRP Demand Planning,” was written to help manufacturing and distribution companies evaluate their sales forecasting and requirements planning process to identify areas in which they can improve.
“Sales Forecasting is a crucial piece of supply chain planning,” says James Mallory, author of the white paper. “Most companies struggle with sales forecasting because they lack the expertise, the data, or the tools to create an accurate forecast; despite their best efforts, they often make mistakes.”
The white paper was written to help companies avoid making such mistakes, and to educate manufacturing and distribution companies about resources available to enhance their supply chain efficiencies and reduce errors. “Some mistakes can’t be avoided but some can,” says Mallory. “Technology has a huge role in helping companies make the best decisions to minimize costs while meeting or exceeding customer expectations.”
The White Paper discusses a number of topics, including proper forecast management, manual vs. statistical forecasting, forecasting strategies, best practices, and more. The white paper is available for free download here.
